    First, make sure that you understand that most of Brother's Drivers are built for 32 bit applications. You have to run a "force architecture" script similar to the one I used for a program I have listed here "sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i /home/Downloads/brother_driver_1.6.2-1_i386.deb" . I could only get my hands on a 32 bit driver so you may need to do the same. The other thing with brother printers/fax machines is that other drivers may work with them. You could try letting CUPS recommend a driver and see what happens.
