http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I need to hook up my Brother 2240D laser printer. First thing I did was just boot into F17 (64-bit) and turn the USB printer on. Fedora recognized and installed something but printing from gedit gave me no output. The printer didn't even wake up from stand-by mode. So I went to Brothers' website for drivers, downloaded these two hl2240dlpr-2.1.1-1.i386.rpm cupswrapperHL2240D-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm and installed them, but don't know what to do next. Instruction listing from Brothers' website + term listing follows. Printer is brand new and works fine in Win7. Any help is appreciated. (HowTos)
