Errors printing with cups

Errors printing with cups


Problem

I had some odd errors when printing from firefox (linux) to a cups server to a brother MFC7820N. Whenever there was a image to print, the printer printed only this error message:

ERROR NAME;
    configurationerror
COMMAND;
    setpagedevice
OPERAND STACK;
    --dicttype--


Printing to file (pdf or ps) and then printing with another program works.

Solution


Install or unpack the latest Windows driver. Search for a file called BM7820N.PPD and copy it over the /etc/cups/ppd/YourPrinterName.ppd
It seems that the GPL'd drivers are way too old!
