AFAIAA Brother DCP7065DN requires the brlaser package:

https://github.com/pdewacht/brlaser

https://packages.debian.org/buster/prin ... er-brlaser

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install brlaser


You should remove anything you have already installed which did not come from the Raspbian Repositories......


I find CUPS admin page a little confusing so thanks to another poster now a different printer install GUI:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install system-config-printer
Retired disgracefully.....
