brother printing

Folks - I got the following from Brother about setting up their HL-5150D
for printing but am unsure whether it's going to screw my system (or
even work). The tar file I've put at
I'm using CUPS for printing (not lpd that it seems to discuss) and it
currently prints but doesn't seem to do duplex

All thoughts welcome!

Dear Sir/Madam,

This is Japanese Solutions Center headquarters.
Thank you for your inquiry.

To solve the problem, would you please follow the instructions below?

1.Please decompress the attached file to the following directory:
cd /
tar zxf  hl5150dlpr-1.1.2.tgz

2.Edit it according to the information in the third line of "doinst.sh"
or fourth line of "delete.sh" which are located in the "install" directory.
For instance, if it's using LPRng, should write like this:
/etc/init.d/lprng  restart

3.Run the "doinst.sh".
sh  doinst.sh

4.When you uninstall it, run both "predelete.sh" and "delete.sh".

sh predelete.sh
sh delete.sh

If these steps don't work well, try "-v" option and
send us the result.

With best regards,
Brother Solutions Center


re the LPD drivers from your web page
the debian package for the HL-5150D doesn't install correctly and very very

very worringly attempted to wipe out /usr/local during uninstall. dpkg
allow this so i had to hand edit the relevant files in /var/lib/dpkg/info
myself in order to uninstall the non-working s/ware
