I am trying to install Brother drivers on Mepis 64 bit and the .deb provided by manufacturer are 32 bit. The Brother Solutions Center lists these instructions Everything goes fine until I get to the install drivers step (3.) Following the Cupswrapper Driver Install instructions Command (for dpkg) : dpkg -i --force-all (lpr-drivername) Command (for dpkg) : dpkg -i --force-all (cupswrapper-drivername) First command runs fine and lpr driver installs. Second command I get the following error output [root@mepis1 Printer]# dpkg --force-all -i cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.deb dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled: package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64) (Reading database ... 100170 files and directories currently installed.)

Been Googling off and on for a couple hours and finding lots of weird Ubuntu stuff, but nothing related to driver installs. Any ideas about what error 127 is and how to fix it.
I just replaced my old HP All-In-One which has been giving me fits for about 3 years. It finally died and let me off the merry-go-round. I got a Brother (they have a huge library of Linux drivers) DCP-7065DN monochrome laser with scan and copy. It sets up easy under Mepis because Brother provides rpm and deb packages with instructions and the Mepis wiki entry is easy to follow. I am now up to installing it on my Arch pure systemd desktop, and even though there is a great ArchWiki entry for this printer, it does not yet apply to systemd. I need to replace all the instances in the file with something designed for the Arch filesystem and systemd, not the in the instructions. Any suggestions about what to use or where to find instructions? I've looked at the systemd homepage and links, the ArchWiki pages associated with systemd and cups, and the mandatory internet search without finding anything really helpful. My best guess, and it is huge guess, in to use /etc/systemd to replace /etc/init.d and /etc/systemd/cups.service to replace /etc/init.d/cups
