This is a brief tutorial how to setup the Brother DCP-7030 (multi function laser copier printer) on i686 Arch.
Install CUPS (see CUPS [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS page]).
It may be necessary to blacklist Usblp module to get AUR driver working. To do that, you may add "!usblp" at the end of your rc.conf MODULES list.
There is the [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=27399 brother-dcp7030] in AUR. It contains driver from Brother.
Install drivers:
% yaourt -S brother-dcp7030
Replace all the <code>/etc/init.d/</code> occurences by <code>/etc/rc.d/</code> in the {{ic|/usr/local/Brother/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2}}.
After that replace  <code>/etc/rc.d/cups</code>  by <code>/etc/rc.d/cupsd</code>
and <code>/etc/rc.d/cupsys</code>  by <code>/etc/rc.d/cupsd</code> in the above file.
# /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 got this [http://www.openprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.php?driver=hl1250&printer=Brother-DCP-7020 PPD]. I replaced all <code>DCP-7020</code> by <code>DCP-7030</code>. After this I add a new printer manually using this PPD.
Install SANE:
# pacman -S sane
Add your user to <code>scanner</code> group:
# gpasswd -a username scanner
{{Note|You need to logout/login for this to take effect.}}
There is the [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24475 brscan3] in AUR.
Install drivers:
% yaourt -S brscan3
After installing add line <code>brother3</code> in the {{ic|/etc/sane.d/dll.conf}}.
Now you can try to see if SANE recognizes your scanner
$ scanimage -L
For more info see SANE [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sane page].
If your scanning software can't use the scanner even with correct scanimage, check your printer usb location with
$ lsusb
and give writing permission for that device to all users. For example, for:
Bus 008 Device 004: ID 04f9:01ea Brother Industries, Ltd DCP-7030
# sudo chmod a+w /dev/bus/usb/002/004
