Local Host Printer Problem on Xubuntu 13.04


I recently installed xubuntu 13.04 and I tried to install my printer (Brother-MFC 240C) which connects to the USB port. I went through the installation and it appears on "printers-localhosts". The device is said to be connected and when I attempt to print, my printer reads "receiving data files" but nothing happens.In the printer properties windows it says that the Printer state is"Idle - sending data to printer." Any idea of what might be wrong?

Problem solved

Using the synaptic package manager, i input mfc 240c and installed:

-brother-cups-wrapper-bh7
-brother-lpr-drivers-bh7

I went through the installation and changed the local driver to Brother DCP-130C CUPS v1.1

I did the test print and voila!

Scanner Drives for MFC 240c

I don't know which scanning drivers to install for the MFC 240C printer. I use simply scan and it doesn't detect the scanner feature of my printer.

With the printer turned on, run the command: sane-find-scanner; read the output to see if the scanner is detected.
Run: scanimage -L; check the output. If you get no positive result, check to see if you have sane installed. The link below has info:
