Setting up Brother QL-550 Printer on Fedora 31

The setup on Fedora compared to Debian differs in the SELinux permissions I had to adjust. But besides that, the workflow is the same.

1. Download Linux drivers from the Brother home page (links bellow)

2. Install the drivers and fix SELinux permissions by running following commands:

$ sudo dnf install ql550lpr-1.0.1-0.i386.rpm
$ sudo dnf install ql550cupswrapper-1.0.1-0.i386.rpm
$ sudo setsebool -P domain_can_mmap_files 1

The reason I had to fix SELinux was following error I was experiencing when trying to print:

$ sudo ausearch -m avc,user_avc,selinux_err,user_selinux_err
fedora audit[16017]: AVC avc:  denied  { execmem } for  pid=16017 comm="brcupsconfpt1"

Point your browser to http://localhost:631/ if you need the CUPS management console.

Brother offers templates for LibreOffice, so don't forget to download their "P-touch Vorlagen für Linux Office Applikationen" from the support page as well.
