Printer Install, Simple and successful! Brother HL-3170CDW Network printer

With help from @linux4all and @A4orce84, I simply entered the following terminal commands:

sudo pacman -S system-config-printer

pamac install manjaro-printer

sudo systemctl enable --now cups.service

sudo systemctl enable --now cups.socket

sudo systemctl enable --now cups.path

pamac install avahi

sudo systemctl enable --now avahi-daemon.service

lpadmin -p HL-3170CDW

lpadmin -p HL-3170CDW -E -v ipp://192.168.1.4/ipp/print -m everywhere

My printer is listed as: HL-3170CDW, Model HL-3170CDW series - IPP Everywhere
Print options include printing in Grayscale or Color, plus doulble-sided printing.

I think the single command “lpadmin -p HL-3170CDW” may have been unnecesary.
192.168.1.4 is the LAN ip of my printer.

Thanks for trying to help, but see all below after doing what you told me to do it just made no difference at all.
