The Brother printer driver for my printer runs into SELinux problems post-install. Fortunately, the selinux troubleshooter made this a trivial fix:
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_etc_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf
semanage fcontext -a -t cupsd_var_run_t /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
restorecon -v /etc/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj6710dw/inf/brmfcj6710dwrc
The remaining files...
