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?

Is CUPS installed and working? (Can you print to other printers?) –  Kevin Nov 23 '11 at 4:57
Thanks for your response. No CUPS is not installed to my knowledge and I only own the one printer. I would like to avoid having to buy a new printer if possible. Would you recommend I install CUPS? –  Jay Be Nov 26 '11 at 4:30
