Printing to the Brother MFC-L2710DW stopped working for me on the three (3) Arch machines I operate. I tried debugging, but cannot find any errors, I suppose it might have something to do with multilib issues. To circumvent this issue, I switched to using a Debian based cups docker and that shares my Brother as a raw printing device to my Arch machines.

You may want to add brscan4 as opt dep for scanning.

As enginefeeder101 commented, the Brother MFC-L2710DW works fine for printing and scanning. brscan4 must also be installed. However, you will need to use the brscan4 associated program "brsaneconfig4" to add the scanner. I set the printer to a fixed IP and put an IP reservation in the router - in my case to Then I executed: sudo brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother-MFC-L2710DW-series model="Brother MFC-L2710DW series" ip=

Obviously you may have set different names but these were the default names. Enjoy!

I own a MFC-L2710DW since a month or two. Both (duplex) printing and scanning (using brscan4 and brscan-skey for easy access buttons) works without any quirks.

Are there specific features I can check for you?

I use Arch and am currently considering purchasing a Brother MFC-L2710DW: there is no information about it on the Linux OpenPrinting database, and I'd like to make sure that it works perfectly in Arch before I take the plunge and buy it.

I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me whether this package/driver works perfectly, mostly, or only partially. Thanks.

I indeed used "LPD/LPR Host or Printer" and "socket://brother:9100" as address. What connection type did you try?

This package is based on that package (same as this one btw) states "LPR and CUPS driver for the Brother ...".

Ok. Adding it with connection type: "LPD/LPR Host o stampante" and address "socket://IP:9100", it works.

Maybe in the .install file you can add that the connection should be LPD/LPR.

This driver does not seem to work:

I get the following error when I try to print something: "Idle - Unable to add document to print job."
