CUPS or foomatic are definately foo bar. I did a fresh install of
Kubuntu 6.06 dapper and had problems selecting my printer, which is a
standard HP LaserJet 6L. The "recommended" driver always worked for me
before, but selecting it always gave a error about not having
permission, (yes, I was root) or a PPD file error. I had to select the
HPLIP driver to get it working. You might want to use the following
command to see if a similar driver would work with your printer.
"foomatic-datafile -A | grep brother"
Also check linuxprinting.org for a possible solution.
