I own a brother DCP-J152W Printer. I have had endless issues getting it setup on Manjaro KDE over the last few releases. I do not have the same issues on Kubuntu.
I have tried the driver for the Brother DCP-j152w wifi multifuncional printer But all I get is an error saying bad file descriptor in the printer settings or once it said that file format not supported on the printer screen and it locked the printer up for an hour. Has something changed? It used to work fine.
I have also tried many times to follow the Arch wiki Packaging Brother printer drivers with no success. I’m still learning how to do pkgbuild.
I would like to know how to get my brother DCP-J152W printer working please any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also why is there only HP printer utilities installed? not everyone owns a hp printer and they (in my area at least) are the hardest to get and most expensive to buy and purchase ink for. I’m not saying hplip is bloatware in itself. But one persons useful is another persons bloatware. How do I go about removing hplip and all it’s applications but not break printer support. I tried one and ended up so frustrated by the mess it caused.
If the Manjaro Team only think people should use HP printers then they should have to supply us all with HP printers at a large discount. .
As I said on Kubuntu I do not have any issues at all I don’t even need a driver I just add my printer as an ipp wireless printer My neighbour in the next room has arch kde and he just added my printer in printer setting. So I’m guessing this is a manjaro issue
What and why is Manjaro different and why do they make it so difficult to not have a non hp printer? is this a financial thing? does manjaro get money for every person they force to buy a HP printer out of frustration ? I’m not being mean it’s a genuine question.
