snowdust [1] filed a deletion request for brother-dcp7060d [2]:


I am running Arch-based ApricityOs (www.apricity.com) and I have a
Brother multifunctional usb DCP-7060D printer/scanner.  In a terminal
window I installed the above package (yaourt brother-dcp7060d).
Unfortunately, this is not a happy story.

a) In Settings/Printers/, Print Test Page does not work and when
clicking the 'Show Jobs' button a window pops up showing a 'No Active
Printer Jobs' message.

b) Launched LibreOffice Writer, opened a document, in the 'Print
Preview' window clicking the Print icon made the 'Print Options'
window pop up.  In the 'Print Options' window, under the General Tab,
I clicked the 'Properties' button which made the Properties window to
In the 'Properties' window, under the Paper tab, are listed the
following items: Paper size, Orientation, Duplex, Paper tray.
Paper size and Orientation have default values that cannot be changed;
Duplex and Paper tray have no default values at all (empty).
These 4 items also have an unresponsive arrowhead pointing downward
making it impossible to select other values than the default ones.

c) In /usr/share/brother/Printer/DCP7060D/ folder... I see only the
lpd and cupswarpper drivers.  There are not scanner drivers.

d) In /usr/shere/brother/Printer/DCP7060D/inf/ folder... again no
scanner file.

I have been trying for more than a week to find a solution without
success.  Thanks for considering the above.
