Did you download the printer install files manually or did they come bundled with the system? I would just try printing while in the live environment before you upgrade and act from there.
I think they'd be with the rest of the CUPS stuff, either in etc or usr. I don't know for sure though. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Hi :
The printer in question is a Brother DCP-115C; and it always has been a pain in the neck to install. Not as easy as HP ones.
Thanks, any way
