Question about Brother MFC-8460N All-In-One Printer

Installing or sending a font to Brother printer

We have a Brother MFC-8460N printer. I am trying to send a postscript file in which I am using a proprietory true type font. When I print the file with "print" command from a command line, it prints in courier font which may be the default. How do I go about sending the font with the file?

You need to use a PS or post script driver in order to print this file.

the reason why you are getting a courrier font is that that driver is not supported by PS

download the latest PS driver of your particular model this should work perfectly

Try and print the document 1 page at a time, upgrade the memory in the printer if you can, and most importantly; make sure that this is not a false error because the PDF requires postscript fonts to be installed you don't have installed on your printer. You can do this as follows.

Their are 3 standards for postscript, go to the manufacturers website and download the newest version of the postscript driver, not PCL. Many printers go nuts if running on an installed PCL driver and asked to print a PDF. If all else fails, this typically gives a lot of false errors.
