    I'm running 12.04 64bit on a toshiba satellite laptop. I have a Brotrher MFC-J825dw printer. I've installed brothers driver for it and the cupswrapper but it won't print. I says it is receiving data but it never shows up in the queue. I've also tried the text only generic driver and the same thing happens. I think some dependencies are missing for the cups wrapper and when I try to find it it says it can't be installed. Nopt sure if that's the problem because it doesn't explain the generic driver failure. In any case, any ideas?

    I am trying to get my Brother MFC-240C printer to work but I think I must be missing a step.

    I think I successfully installed the lpr drivers using the command supplied in this post but the printer is still not showing up when I try to print. Its quite possible I am forgetting an obvious step. Any further ideas or steps I need to take?
