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.) Preparing to replace cupswrapperdcp7065dn 2.0.4-2 (using cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.deb) ... sh: Can't open /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 dpkg: warning: subprocess old pre-removal script returned error exit status 127 dpkg - trying script from the new package instead ... sh: Can't open /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 dpkg: error processing cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.deb (--install): subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 127 sh: Can't open /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 Errors were encountered while processing: cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.deb This is the step that creates the files to be moved in step 4, so it doesn't work. 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.
