installing brother hl2240 in ubuntu11.10

I am stuck trying to get printer drivers installed in ubuntu11.10. I can see the printer, but can't locate the driver I installed from brother. Where is it typically located?

"/usr/share/cups/drv" is the location of the "CUPS printer drivers". Newer drivers and general info can be found at "".

Thanks for the info. I have found the problem is not the driver for the printer but with cups. This part won't load. Need to investigate more.
