Power crashed when installing printer. Wget required

Hi Forum,

I went to Brother's website to get the driver installation utility for the printer and scanner for a MFC-9340CDW.

I extracted it. I chmod +x it.

I launched it. It required wget so it downloaded it.

But then I stepped on the telephone line cable and the computer crashed. It powered down.
I had to plug it in again.

When I launched the installation again it went through the process of downloading wget again, said it succeeded, then the printer installation failed saying it needed wget. "wget required"

What is happening and how do I remedy it please?


Thankyou,

Gregorian Chant.

What does rpm -q wget show? If it shows that it's not installed, then run dnf -y install wget.

If it shows that it's installed, I'm not sure.

I have solved the wget problem.

Uninstall wget by: "sudo dnf remove wget". Get a few errors about files not found but successful anyway.
Then reinstall wget by: "sudo dnf install wget".

Then run printer installation. All O.K.
