Unfortunately extra/cups did not work with DCP-7030 on my PC. But it works with [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35029 cups-usblp] from AUR.
Install CUPS (see CUPS [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS page]).
So, if you are using [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35029 yaourt] you can get cups-usblp:
% yaourt -S cups-usblp
Check if usblp is loaded:
% lsmod | grep usblp
If it does not then load it manually:
# modprobe usblp
You can make it autoload at boot: add it to the <code>MODULES=()</code> in the {{Filename|/etc/rc.conf}}
MODULES=(... usblp ...)
After installing cups-usblp, start CUPS by:
# /etc/rc.d/cups start
For automatically starting CUPS every time the system is powered on, add it to the <code>DAEMONS=()</code> in the {{Filename|/etc/rc.conf}}:
DAEMONS=(... @cups ...)

This is a brief tutorial how to setup the Brother DCP-7030 (multi function laser copier printer) on i686 Arch.



Install CUPS (see CUPS page).


There is the brother-dcp7030 in AUR.

Install drivers:

% yaourt -S brother-dcp7030

After installing brother-dcp7030 run

# /usr/local/Brother/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2

Now go to the CUPS page: http://localhost:631/

Under the Printers tab you should see a DCP7030 printer automatically installed and configured.

Note: You need run cupswrapper only once! You do not need it run every time at startup.



Install SANE:

# pacman -S sane

Add your user to scanner group:

# gpasswd -a username scanner
Note: You need to logout/login for this to take effect.


There is the brscan3 in AUR.

Install drivers:

% yaourt -S brscan3

After installing add line brother3 in the Template:Filename.

Now you can try to see if SANE recognizes your scanner

$ scanimage -L

For more info see SANE page.
