Printer setup - Brother hl1212w

Hallo. Needing some help.
I am running Manjaro xfce4
There are no installation files in AUR for my Brother hl1212w.
I found a topic -in arch-: “Packaging Brother printer drivers” (the formum does not allow me to paste links).
Does anybody know if that works in Manjaro?
I have already built the PKGBUILD as the article suggests (still didn’t try to run them -first timer in doing that-):

**PKBUILD LPR

Maintainer: Tim Cassels ********

pkgname=brother-hl1212w-lpr-bin
pkgver=3.0.1
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc=“LPR driver for Brother HL-1212w printer”
arch=(“i686” “x86_64”)
url="**"
license=(“EULA”)
groups=(“base-devel”)
source=("
")
md5sums=(“00aa4739eef05a882ba78a071ef7cf99”)
package() {
tar -xf data.tar.gz -C “${pkgdir}”
}

**PKBUILD CUPS

Maintainer: Tim Cassels ******

pkgname=brother-hl1212w-cups-bin
pkgver=3.0.1
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc=“CUPS wrapper for Brother HL-1212w printer”
arch=(“i686” “x86_64”)
url=“"
license=(“EULA”)
groups=(“base-devel”)
source=("

md5sums=(“740a9efab40e65b3024917c1a49022fd”)
package() {
tar -xf data.tar.gz -C “${pkgdir}”
}

Any suggestions? (now I am supposed to makepkg them…).
Thanks,
R.

If you cannot find your exact printer driver:

you should use a search engine and add “Linux PPD” and that brings me to:

https://www.openprinting.org/printer/Brother/Brother-HL-1210W

which says:

Brother HL-1230 driver is recommended, so try that first if you can find that in your standard repository…

:innocent:

Note: Just giving you generic information on how I solve printer driver problems under Linux. I do not own your hardware so cannot verify the above… :sob:
