New to Manjaro and wanting to install Brother MFC Printer

I have been using Linux for many years and now moving to Manjaro.
I have a Brother MFC 9340CDW printer.
On previous *buntu desktops I have gone and followed the instructions:

But for ARCH (Manjaro) there is no support for install.
I found []
I have downloaded the files from here.

Right now I am unsure what needs to happen with them to get them installed so I can pick up my printer model.

Note - I have also tried to just install the printer via the add printer using IP address etc, but this specific printer is not listed. I believe it is a local (Australia Only) version.

Getting this printer to work is now my yes/no for ARCH Manjaro going forward.
Thanks in advance.


pamac build brother-mfc-9340cdw

Hi @johnd, and welcome!

The driver for that printer is in the AUR:

$ pamac search 9340
brother-mfc-9340cdw                                                                                                                                                                                                                          1.1.2_1-2  AUR
LPR and CUPS driver for the Brother MFC-9340CDW

So can be installed using:
