Brother MFC-410w

Thank in advance for reading this post.

I have a brother HL-1440 that uses a generic driver for lpr/lpq across the lan. works great and has been well used with no problem.

I have a buddy who has a brother MFC-410w color laser printer and is trying to set it up for network printing. I suggested also LPQ/LPR but we can't locate a driver. Other places we checked says it is not linux compatible. Is there a generic brother or other driver that may work for this unit?

Do you mean the MFC-J410W?

All Brother printers are Linux compatible because they have done Linux drivers.
Drivers are here
