This driver is free software.
Type: Ghostscript built-in

Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler, PPD aware applications/clients,

Important for Windows clients: The CUPS PostScript driver for Windows has a bug which makes it choking on PPD files which contain GUI texts longer than 39 characters. Therefore it is recommended to use Adobe's PostScript driver. If you still want to use the CUPS driver, please mark "GUI texts limited to 39 characters" to get an appropriate PPD file.

This driver is available in the Ghostscript Printer Application

This driver handles the 1200x600 dpi mode for the Brother HL-1050/1070/1250/1270N and the 600x600 dpi mode for the Brother HL-1030/1240. It also provides some options as paper source and toner saving.

It is available from Ghostscript 6.10 on, or as a patch for gs 5.50. For the Ghostscript versions already containing the driver there are patches to update to a new version (these patches are needed to get 600x600 dpi on the HL-1030/1240 and compatible to work). From GNU Ghostscript 6.53/APFL Ghostscript 7.04 on the complete driver with 600-dpi support on the HL-1030/1240 is included.

In later Ghostscript versions the driver was removed again, use this package to add this and some other removed drivers to Ghostscript 7.x (already added in ESP Ghostscript 7.x) or these files for GPL/AFPL Ghostscript 8.x (already there in ESP Ghostscript 8.x). If you want to add the driver to your Ghostscript 8.x, put the gdevhl12.c file into the src/ subdirectory of the Ghostscript source package, append gdevhl12-hl1250.mak to src/contrib.mak, and add "$(DD)hl1250.dev" to one of the "DEVICE_DEVS..." lines of src/Makefile.in. Then compile as ususal.
