Here are the instructions on how to install Brother cupswrapper driver for QL-570 label printer

Download two files: LPR driver and cupswrapper driver from brother web-page (location might change):
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_esp.html#QL-570
Code:
ql570lpr-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm
ql570cupswrapper-1.0.0-1.redhat.i386.rpm


Convert them to tar.gz
Code:
rpm2targz ./ql570lpr-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm
rpm2targz ./ql570cupswrapper-1.0.0-1.redhat.i386.rpm

Extract the files:
Code:
tar zxvf ./ql570lpr-1.0.0-1.i386.tar.gz
tar zxvf ./ql570cupswrapper-1.0.0-1.redhat.i386.tar.gz


Code:
cd /usr/local/Brother/PTouch/ql570/cupswrapper/
mv cupswrapperql570pt1 cupswrapperql570pt1.bak
rm cupswrapperql570pt1

(Change all occurrences of /etc/init.d/cups to /etc/init.d/cupsd)
Code:
/bin/sed 's/\/etc\/init.d\/cups\ restart/\/etc\/init.d\/cupsd\ restart/g' ./cupswrapperql570pt1.bak > cupswrapperql570pt1

Code:
(If you're on a 64bit system, change all occurrences of "/usr/lib/" to "/usr/lib32/" )
nano -w cupswrapperql570pt1

install the printer:
Code:
# ./cupswrapperql570pt1 -i

Ignore bellow error:
lpadmin: Bad device-uri "brusb_ql570:/dev/usb".


(for amd64 link from .../lib32/...)
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib32/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperql570 /usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperql570
/etc/init.d/cupsd restart


Go to cups QL-570 http://localhost:631/printers/
click on administration --> modify printer and install brother printer, you should have a selection: usb://Brother/QL-570
