Print by Raspbian (Linux)


To print using a terminal

Open a terminal window.

Use the following command:
lpr -P BrGenPrintML2 print_file_name


To change the print settings, use the "-o" switch:
lpr -P BrGenPrintML2 -o PageSize=A5 -o Resolution=300dpi print_file_name

You can view the details of Parameter by the following command.

Command: brprintconf_{Model Name without "-"}

E.g. MFC-J430W : brprintconf_mfcj430w


To print from an application

Open the file you want to print.
In the application you are using, go to the print dialog box.
In the print dialog box, select "BrGenPrintML2" as the printer name.

If the print jobs are not printed successfully, make sure you have correctly configured the printer's IP address or node name using the lpadmin command.


Supported File Formats

We recommend using the lpr command only when printing the following formats: PDF, PS, TXT, and JPG. To print other file formats, print directly from the application supporting that file format.
