I don't have that printer, but I have a Brother DCP 135 C, and the
procedure for yours is probably similar.  You need to install a
cups-wrapper as well as a driver, and with my printer there are several
other steps such as creating directories and symlinks as well as editing
one of the .conf files.  Brother are very good at providing a full list
of things you have to do.  It might be worth spending a bit more time on
their web-site.  I ended up writing a shell script to do all the jobs
whenever I install a new version.
