bare-metal linux instructions

  1. Install & run CUPS
    • On Ubuntu/Mint:
      • apt-get install cups
      • service start cups
    • On Debian:
      • apt-get install cups
      • /etc/init.d/cups start

      • systemctl start cups
  2. You configure CUPS through the browser at: http://localhost:631/admin
  3. Click on Add Printer. It will ask you for your root password. This is very insecure but it's how some stupid Linux things work!

    • Password: your root password
  4. Under Other Network Printers, select: LPD/LPR Host or Printer and press continue
  5. Under Connection, enter this string: lpd://

  7. Under Make, select Brother. Press continue.
  8. Under Model, select: Brother HL-1250 Foomatic/hl1250 (recommended).
  9. Press Add Printer.
  10. Try printing a test page!
