grep: /etc/cups/ppd/MFC-L2700DW-series.ppd: Permission denied

Run it with sudo...
Code:
sudo egrep -i "name|model|filter" /etc/cups/ppd/*
Ah, now I see what you're getting at - two printer configs
Code:
Default system destination: MFCL2700DW
Device for MFC-L2700DW-series: usb: // Brother / MFC-L2700DW% 20series? serial = E73943H7N560045
Device for MFCL2700DW: usb: // dev / usb / lp0
Only the first URL is valid. Delete the second with
Code:
sudo lpadmin -x MFCL2700DW

It's not essential, but the printer can be configured as default printer using
Code:
sudo lpadmin -d MFC-L2700DW-series

I have done that. And the change I have seen is that when i send a document for printing there was a sign with the average of the process printing, which wasn't before. I don't know if that makes sense..

That output for textonly.ppd is not relevant for your printer. I note from your earlier post that there is /etc/cups/ppd/MFC-L2700DW-series.ppd, and that is the correct PPD for the printer.

You can cancel any stale/pending print jobs with
Code:
cancel -a
It is possible to send a test print via the CUPS web interface using your favourite browser and navigating to

localhost:631/printers

or from a terminal using

Code:
lp -d MFC-L2700DW-series /usr/share/cups/data/testprint

Ok, check that the PPD exists
Code:
ls -l /dev/cups/ppd
and report printer status again
Code:
lpstat -t
If that checks out, but printing is still not working, we'll need to check for missing dependencies perhaps.

ls -l /etc/cups/ppd

Ok, then the following should confirm the driver details...
Code:
sudo egrep -i "name|model|filter" /etc/cups/ppd/MFC-L2700DW-series.ppd
Also, check that the filter backend is present...
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/cups/filter/brother*
