The Brother printer is supported with a Brother Linux driver. Do you have Cups and the driver installed? You access cups with any web browser, and http://localhost:631 in the location bar.

See this link for the driver, and instructions to install.


Right now is unavailable. Been like that for a couple of days. HP printers are well supported, I'd check there to see what driver they recommend, make sure that is what is installed and configured.

See this link for the Brother cups drivers.
