I'm using openSUSE11.3. I cannot print to my Brother Machine. (Linux)

> Click here to download the tool.


Extract the downloaded file:

Command: gunzip brother_patch_psconv.gz


Run the patch_file.

Command: bash brother_patch_psconv


Manually modify:

Type the following command and look for the file which starts with "psconvert".


Command: ls /usr/local/Brother/lpd/psconvert*
Command: ls /usr/local/Brother/Printer/*/lpd/psconvert*
Command: ls /opt/brother/Printers/*/lpd/psconvert*

Open the found file using a text editor.
Look for the line starting with "GHOST_OPT=".

Insert "-sstdout=%stderr" before "-sOutputFile" in that line.





GHOST_OPT="-q -dNOPROMPT -dNOPAUSE -dSAFER -sDEVICE=$OUTPUT_TYPE -sstdout=%stderr -sOutputFile=- - -c quit"
