I got a Brother MFC-9970CDW printer, a multifunction device with wired/wireless network.
For unknown reasons the driver are not available in Ubuntu and as as user you are not able to find them using the printer configuration search tool.
Thereby you need to download the drivers yourself.
Go to Brother Linux Driver Downloads and download the
LPR driver and the
Install the Drivers
sudo mkdir /var/spool/lpd sudo dpkg -i mfc9970cdwlpr-1.1.1-5.i386.deb sudo dpkg -i mfc9970cdwcupswrapper-1.1.1-5.i386.deb
