Well, I got the very same printer today and it works like a charm, so lets sum
up what I did:
- plug in the printer
- power it on
- hotplug did all the usb stuff
- tried to install a generic driver, which lead to the "empty pages" problem
- installed the lpd driver from Brother
- installed the cups wrapper from Brother
- followed the instruction, which is basically going to localhost:631 and
adding the printer by hand, because it didn't work automagically. I guess
(but haven't tried it) that at this point the printer will be even on the
list inside the control center.
- printed a test page
