Thanks for help!

Have you been to the Brother support site to search for linux drivers? I 
am running 2 Brother printers here, and both are running on Brother 
supplied drivers. Once properly installed, they show up and are 
selectable in the web based configuration you see when you send a 
browser to <localhost:631/printers>.  OTOH, I haven't looked at that on 
the raspi I have. I should because I'll need to be able to print from it 
as I develop the software to drive a cnc'd lathe. I'll do that when I 
get to the garage where the machine is at. For some reason I can't run 
the chromium-browser from an ssh -Y login from here. "Can't open nouveau 
driver" which this machine uses. But it does draw the window outline, 
and I can click on its close button from here and it goes away clean.

FWIW, all my printers are either networked, or driven from this machine, 
so if you have x86 hardware to put the drivers into, and hook the 
printers up to the x86 machine, its generally a just works situation 
although you may have to go into the cups.conf file and enable browsing 
of your local network. Print jobs go thru this x86 machine the way I'm 
setup. IOW, this machine, even though the brother is networked, does the 
sharing. So this machine drives the networked printer.  So the data path 
would be over the local network to this machine and rendered by the 
brother drivers here, and then fed back over the network to that 
printers address.  Sounds complex, but cups handles it all.
