Fixing a Brother Printer under Fedora

Background and Starting Point

If you are having any problems with Brother printers under Linux, first check out the Brother Printer Drivers web page. Brother has done an excellent job supporting Linux and you may just find your answer there.

What to Check if it Stops Working

I had my printing all set up and working fine. Then at some point I did a yum update and it stopped working. After looking in my logs I found a ghostscript error. This post helped me fix my printer. Simply comment out the /etc/cups/ppd/printername.ppdline:
*DefaultOutputOrder: Reverse
Like this:
*%DefaultOutputOrder: Reverse

Then issue /etc/init.d/cups restart and you should be able to print again.
