Hi Michael,

I found a couple of pages that may be of help.


The first link is too Brothers driver for the printer but from what is 
said in the third link you may want to try the instructions for setting 
up the printer in CUPS that is linked off the fourth URL and use the 
2060 PPD file that is also available on that page as well.

Debian the choice of a GNU generation.
