Assuming the download is in your ~/Downloads directory
cd ~/Downloads gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1.gz sudo -i bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1
Answer the questions it shows (printer model and type of connection are the 1st two) and wait for the installer to continue. Watch for error notices.
If all goes well check "Printers" and see if your model is listed and the let CUPS install it.
The tar file only has 1 file in it and has some parameters you can change:
ENABLE_FAX_INSTALL=No # change to Yes if FAX is required DEBUG_MSG=0 MSG=1
Another way: Install Brother drivers from their website: http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=hl1112_us_eu
Then ensure that also installed are:
brother-lpr-drivers-common brother-lpr-drivers-laser1 brother-cups-wrapper-common brother-cups-wrapper-laser1 printer-driver-brlaser
Probably not all these five are necessary (you could experiment) but together they made my printer work.
