I installed ubuntu 12.04. I downloaded and installed the drivers from the Brother solutions, but the printer does not receive data for printing.
The model of the Brother laser printer is dcp8070d.
Anyone know a solution to this?

When you use the drivers from the Brother solutions, make sure that before installing those drivers, the printer is deleted. When the drivers are already installed, then remove them in Synaptic and delete the printer (In Unity: Gear icon at the upper right of the screen > Printers). After deleting the printer you can install the drivers again (lpr and cupswrapper) and the printer should work now.
