I have a Brother HL-5370DW and tried to follow instruction from:
http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/Brother_MFC-3240C
substituting appropriate name for my printer but I can not get it to work:
Code:
 so in my case it was:
tar zxvf ./hl5370dwlpr-2.0.3-1.i386.tar.gz -C /
tar zxvf ./cupswrapperHL5370DW-2.0.4-1.i386.tar.gz -C /

/bin/sed 's/\/etc\/init.d\/cups\ restart/\/etc\/init.d\/cupsd\ restart/g' ./cupswrapperHL5370DW-2.0.4 > ./cupswrapperHL5370DW-2.0.4


The above substitute: /etc/init.d/cups restart
to: /etc/init.d/cupsd restart
in file: cupswrapperHL5370DW-2.0.4

Though when I run your installation script I get:
Code:
./cupswrapperHL5370DW-2.0.4 -i
cp: `/usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperHL5370DW' and `/usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperHL5370DW' are the same file

The last step was to create symbolic link:
ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperHL5370DW /usr/libexec/cups/filter/

Code:
The printer appears in cups: localhost:631

Description:   Brother HL-5370DW series
Location:   
Driver:   Brother HL5370DW for CUPS (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
Connection:   socket://10.0.0.151
Defaults:   job-sheets=none, none media=na_letter_8.5x11in sides=one-sided


I can ping the ip address: 10.0.0.151
When I try to print something I get:

Print Self-Test Page Brother_HL-5370DW_series Error
Unable to send command to printer driver!
Unsupported format 'application/vnd.cups-command'!

When I try to print something, cups error_log shows:
Code:
[cups-driverd] Bad driver information file "/usr/share/cups/model/foomatic-db-ppds/Kyocera/kyocera_ppd_8.2.txt"!

It seems like a wrong printer driver is assign to the printer: even though I selected: Brother HL5370DW for CUPS (grayscale, 2-sided printing)

When I try to install the printer cups sees the printer and after installation it tries to connect to:
Code:
Connection:   lpd://brother/BINARY_P1

What is lpd? shouldn't it be: socket://IP_address ?

and in this case cups error returns:
Code:
