I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and have a Brother HL-2270DW printer that I am trying to connect to my computer via USB. I followed the instructions here to install the printer, and in general, it works fine. However, every time I get a software update, the printer uninstalls, and I have to re-run the installation script. Also, every time I get a software update, the printer settings in general reset (there are lots of WiFi connected printers around that I delete from my Printer Settings, only for them to all return when the update finishes). How can I keep this from continually happening every time something updates?
Here's the output from the last time I ran
sudo apt-get upgrade and had the printer go away:
