Introduction

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

Printer

CUPS

Install CUPS (see CUPS page).

Drivers

Original

There is the brother-dcp7030 in AUR. It contains driver from Brother.

Install drivers:

% yaourt -S brother-dcp7030

Replace all the /etc/init.d/ occurences by /etc/rc.d/ in the Template:Filename.

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.

Using PPD from hl1250

Unfortunately original driver did not work with DCP-7030 on my PC.

I had got this PPD and replaced all DCP-7020 by DCP-7030. After this I add a new printer manually using this PPD.

Scanner

SANE

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.

Drivers

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.
