Brother HL1110 Laser Printer on Linux
(The printer that supports x86 Linux and nothing else!)
I decided to leave the expensive Inkjet printer world and go for laser printers. As it happens, there was a special going on the #Brother
HL1110 printer so I had to investigate.
Reading the blurb sheets, the printer has linux support! BINGO
so I went and bought one. All was going well until I wanted to make an embedded print server using a #CubieBoard2
and that's where the linux support on the printer ended.#Brother
have a binary only policy for their CUPS drivers and I am yet to get a build for ARM processors.
If you have managed to get a HL1110 Laser printer to work on an ARM distribution, please feel free to shout - otherwise, my advice is -Friends don't let friends buy Brother Products
