I've asked for help before on my newer intel machine on which no printer
works with El Capitan for my Brother HL-1440 printer.

You guys have sent me suggestions and I thank you and none of them work.

None of the printer drivers work. Any instructions to mess around in
don't work. I've downloaded step by step instructions for doing things in
Terminal and those don't work either.

Finally, I did buy version of 10.6 Mac OS and a new hard drive and
installed it. I successfully
installed the HL-1440 driver and it works, however neither system works with
each other. I can't print any files from El Capitan. I don't have
permissions. I screw
around with permissions like running Hard Drive utility and nothing
changes. Screwing
around with the permissions panel in Info doesn't change anything.

I see there is a master password in Terminal. I have never messed with
that. I don't
know what it does. I have a bunch of files I need to print. I'm not getting

Any help would be appreciated.
