    Going for laptop replacement with this box. So far so good.....until I installed the Brother Print Service Plugin.
    When I turn it on from android settings it starts searching for the printer (which is network connected). Here it stays continuously searching for the printer.

    I have several phones and tablets using this plugin with no problems.

    Any help is appreciated

    Try to install a PING tool or a terminal emulator from the PLAY, then try to ping your printer.
    If no answer, check your minix network setting.

    I just ran 'Fing' and it sees the printer and can ping it.
    I should also mention that the Brother print/scan app detects the printer with no problems.

    I installed Google Cloud Print and this can see the printer.
    However when I click print nothing happens.

    Is printing supported?

    Thanks Skynet.
    I tried that app and it works fine but printing from a printing app is not the issue.

    the issue is using the print service on android.
    e.g. opening chrome and printing from the chrome app..like in the picture below.

    It may seem a non issue but this is the easiest way to print and would add
    convenience to the Minix.

    Any success with adding/finding printer?

    Same problem here... Google Cloud Print NOT working at all! :eek:
    Maybe it's a Lollipop issue? On my 'old' X8-H Cloud Print worked flawlessly... :unsure:

    Never got it working. Have you tried the official app for your printer?
