i recently bought this printer
i was impressed they offered linux drivers
im running mint 14 32-bit mate edn which unfortunately doesnt have driver support
brother give a complicated installation example (for a novice like me) that involves using rpm or deb to somehow run a lpr driver link below

grateful for any ideas!

many thanks pdc_2, it works!

im afraid it is a bit over my head whatever it did

when they talk about cups wrappers i assumed it is for personalising your crockery!

thanks again for your generosity
