Driver for (some) Brother laster printers
This fork of pdewacht/brlaser provides a couple of fixes to make brlaser compile under FreeBSD.
Most Brother printers support a standard printer language such as PCL or PostScript, but not all do. If you have a monochrome Brother laser printer (or multi-function device) and the other open source drivers don't work, this one might help.
It is known to support these printers:
- Brother DCP-7030
- Brother DCP-7055
- Brother DCP-7065DN
Run the following:
- make install
If you get the following errors under FreeBSD:
- /brlaser-master/src/main.cc:68: undefined reference to `libiconv_open'
- /brlaser-master/src/main.cc:78: undefined reference to `libiconv'
- /brlaser-master/src/main.cc:84: undefined reference to `libiconv_close'
Edit the Makefile and replace
- LIBS =
- by LIBS = -liconv
You may need to install some dependencies (complete gcc, autoconf, etc.)
