Install Brother HL2035 in Linux Mint 15


brother offer 4 drivers and a install program which itself has to be installed.
I am new to Linux, and jargon like Cupswrapper is Greek to me.
Is there anywhere I can get simple instructions to install the printer?

Hi and welcome to LQ. I assume you have CUPS installed completely. Open a browser and type localhost:631 in the navigation bar. In the middle column called "CUPS for Adminitrators" click on the first item: "Adding printers and classes". When that page opens click on "Add Printers" under the PRINTERS heading. At that point you'll probably be asked to give your password. Do so and then just follow the instructions. Let us know if you get stuck at any point.
Ciao,
jdk
