Thanks a lot @stewi! I got colors working by using CUPS to add a printer via IPP, with the URL you recommended. Interestingly, the correct driver only shows up when adding the printer with CUPS, not when doing so with system-config-printer.

I've written up this solution on printerforums.net and raised an issue for system-config-printer.

@mb720 I had a very similar problem.

Solved by manually entering 'ipp://<ip_address>/ipp/port1'. A different driver with a longer name then appeared "DCP-L3550CDW series - IPP Everywhere - IPP Everywhere ™" as opposed to "Brother DCP-L3550CDW CUPS (en)" that had always appeared. After selecting the new driver, it worked no problems.

Auto detection (and me for 5 hours) seems to find the wrong URI endpoint.

Thanks a lot for packaging this driver!

Is anyone else having trouble printing? I'm able to to print the "Self-Test Page" using system-config-printer. This prints a black border on the page along with "Brother DCP-L3550CDW series 3010.106 5 -888078254" on three separate lines.

But when I select "Print Test Page" (the one that includes Tux next to a stylized printer), the printer state goes from "Processing" directly to "Idle" and the printer doesn't do anything. There are no errors for any jobs in the CUPS web interface.

Using a different driver "Generic PCL Laser Printer [en]" allows printing the test page in black and white but not in color.

Do you know how to debug this further?

driver is now installed into /opt as some bin paths are hardcoded, with the new paths margins are now working for me on test printing

I also had issues with margins using this driver. The document would print too high and slightly to the left. Using the driver option «Brother DCP-L3550CDW series, driverless, cups-filters 1.23.0» in the CUPS web UI when adding the printer resolved this issue.

Unfortunately, when I print, it appears the margins are wrong, or the text is printed way too much to the top of the paper. This happens when printing a PDF. When printing a test page, all alignment looks proper. Does anybody have the same issue?
