you need to do
to get root access until you log out from terminal.
so you could then do only:
dnf localinstall ./brscan4-0.4.2-1.x86_64.rpm
without leading “sudo”.
the dnf command will only work if you changed to the directory where you downloaded the packages:
usually ~/Downloads ( “~” is a short form of /home/<your-username>)
and only if the whole package name is correct !
for a correct package name you could do the following:
type in only:
dnf localinstall ./brsca
and then hit the tab key (left from the “q” key).
it will expand “brsca” to the full name (I believe it’s called “command expansion” or the like, see in an terminal: man bash (the linux manual on the box or read it in the internet too)
I support the “command expansion” somewhat with providing “./” in front of the package name. It shall “search” only in the current directory, which is in Linux/Unix the point (".").
often (ever ?) “command expansion” works with command parameter too, so
dnf lo <Tab-Key> expands first to “local” and a next <Tab-Key> gives two chances “localinstall” or “localupdate”. I need to key in only the “i” and hit the <Tab-Key> again to expand to “localinstall” !
Advantage are an error free command line and less typing work.
but back to the topic:
“HL-2140” should work if you configured it first (see above)
difficulty may come up with the “MFC-7362N”
- the printer driver is NOT in the printer openprinting database
- the scanner driver may work, if the driver you’re trying to install will work, cause it seems there is NO official support too, see:
I guess you need to try to get info’s to get it running from vendor support foren or google.
maybe an option is to get the printer running in an virtual machine or an old notebook running windows 7 and share the printer via local network. - just a wild guess by me before putting the printer complete offline… -
maybe you get luck with the vendor driver, don’t know !
