WOW, that howto sucks!
I use two Brother Laser printers: HL-2070N (black and white laser); and
HL-4040CN (color laser). Both work PERFECT in ubuntu. Combined they
took me under 5 minutes to set up.
But, I got my drivers direct from Brother. They have fantastic Linux
support. Just go to:
If anything, just work with Brother to move their drivers into an APT
repository so that upgrades can be automatically installed. That would
be a far better solution than Ubuntu taking this problem on.
