After a bit of Googling and looking around the Brother site, I found It shows how to get the drivers for Linux distributions.

Here is the driver table for the HL-5340D.

Whichever method of installing is your choice. I don't know the difference between cupswrapper or LPR so I can't help you on that one-- I would choose the cupswrapper one because it's a higher version, though.

For installing the driver, you're on your own since I don't own such a printer but I did manage to find this installation page to help with the cupswrapper install verison.

and if you chose the LPR version

Best of luck,
