Brother Printer

I love Garuda. It looks good and works well too.
I installed it today and got most everything working. I love how it is organized.
It is very user-friendly, however, the last stage of my setup today is installing my Brother MFC-J825DW printer and here I have hit a roadblock.
Brother only supplies .deb or RPM packages for the drivers.
Is there any way I can install this printer?
I have used other distros that work with those packages, but this is the first distro that I ventured to install that uses Pacman.
If I can't install the printer then I will have to use Garuda as an occasional system whereas if I got it going it would be my 1st choice :slight_smile:

I was having trouble with my Brother printer. I tried what was mentioned in the forum, and it was still broken.

in the terminal i ran;

cupsd

somehow that activated the cups server and i was able to connect.

If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file

/etc/cups/cupsd.conf 

will be used.

cups service was renamed from
org.cups.cupsd

To simply cups

In the new. Version of cups package
You need to reenable it

systemctl enable cups.socket
