Have you set up / configured the printer via Mageia Control Centre => hardware => configure printer?

1/ press the "add" button
2/in the "Select devices" window, choose "network printer" - has a little tirangle beside it
3/ choos the sub headding "Find network printer"
4/ in the window "Host" put in the printer URL - you need to get this from the printer., then => " find"
5/ it will scan for the printer, and if found will give a list of available printers. choose the "IPP (printer URL)" then => " forward"
6/ choose the make or the highlighted (recommended) , then => "forward"
7/ choose the driver or the highlighted (recommended), then =>"forward"
8/ enter the location and then => "apply" you will be asked to print a test page

internet search results:

People also ask
How do I find my Brother printer's IP address?
Press the [Menu] and navigate to the WLAN tab (using the ▲/▼ arrows and the [OK] button) Press ▲ and select WLAN Status. Select Infrastructure Mode. The screen will display your network connection settings, your IP Address is listed on the third line.

Download the following drivers from the Brother support homepage:

https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadhowto.aspx?c=de&lang=de&prod=mfcj430w_all&os=127&dlid=dlf006569_000&flang=4&type3=558 -> mfcj430wlpr-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm
https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadhowto.aspx?c=de&lang=de&prod=mfcj430w_all&os=127&dlid=dlf006571_000&flang=4&type3=560 -> mfcj430wcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm

Please take note where you saved the drivers (as example to /home/yourusername/Downloads/), because you will need this path later.

Open a teminal and do the following commands:
Code: Select all
su -
It will ask for your ROOT passwort. Put it in and hit Enter

Code: Select all
cd /home/yourusername/Downloads/
Here you have to put the path where you saved the two drivers!!!!

Code: Select all
rpm -ihv --nodeps mfcj430wlpr-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm
It will install

Code: Select all
rpm -ihv --nodeps mfcj430wcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm
It will install

Code: Select all
exit


Open Mageia Software Center and go to printers. Your MFC-J430W shows up. Click on it and configure your printer (connection type USB or IP adress and so on and on...)
