I've 2 linux machines, a ubuntu and a recent installation of arch linux. I also have an IP printer MFC-J280W.

My ubuntu machine prints fine using cups. I've tried to setup the printer the same way on arch, and the setup looks OK, print jobs are confirmed as done, yet nothing ever comes out of the printer.

Can anyone suggest any solution or point me to something that does not look good in that log output ?
