    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Help installing printer


Nov 17, 2019
Hi there Pop_Planet,

Just wondering if anybody has ever installed a brother printer onto pop_os to pair to the local wireless network (LAN).

Printer I am running is:

Brother MFC 7362N

I am also trying to print with a Brother HL-2140. Although it just prints out lots of paper with no text.

Computer I am running is the following

OS: Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS x86_64
//////7676767676*////////////// Kernel: 5.4.0-7634-generic
/////76767//7676767////////////// Uptime: 29 mins

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Yeah, my admin has a brother printer connected over LAN. I think they followed this doc. They added the user to the lpadmin group, and it seems to work. sudo usermod -aG lpadmin $USER
