Finally progress :)

After fiddeling about and also updating the printers firmware by means of accessing the web interface on I got a more modern protocol to work, both in unencrypted and encrypted mode:


I also got mDNS discovery to work eventually, mostly by following the wiki:

The solution to get USB working was to uninstall the ipp-usb package.

Ok. I can find no way to make it work over USB. And any normal network discovery gives nothing. But after even more googeling I found two different URIs that makes it work on network printing after connecting the printer to my router:

LPD/LPR Host or Printer:


AppSocket/HP JetDirect:


Strange stuff, indeed....

(Anybody trying this must obviously replace the IP with whatever the printer gets on their network.)

How did you go about installing the printer and make the printer actually print after installing the driver? I've tried anything I managed to google up and still there are no connection between CUPS and the printer.

you have the line: arch=('i686' 'x86_64') twice in the PKGBUILD

I've added ghostscript as a dependency now. Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks romasch for this package and also for mentioning ghostscript, that was indeed necessary for me. Without it, the printer would report "receiving data" and then stop, and cups would incorrectly interpret each print as a success. Following the installation of ghostscript a print worked first time.

Perhaps it should be added as a dependency?

I only get one entry for this package: "Brother HLL2350DW for CUPS (en)" It is possible that another package provides a driver for this model as well.

By the way, it might be necessary to install ghostscript as well for this printer driver.

Many thanks for the package. After installing it and browsing to the cups add printer page, I get these three options...

Brother HL-L2350DW series (Brother HL-L2350DW series)

Brother HL-L2350DW series (Brother HL-L2350DW series)

Brother HL-L2350DW series (Brother HL-L2350DW series (driverless))

Why are there two identical entries? Is there any difference between them? What is the difference between those two and the driverless entry?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.
