    There are no drivers for that printer.

    I need 64-bit drivers.
    Could someone write and compile 64-bit drivers? The source code is available for download.

    Download the source code from here:
    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...nload_src.html

    Extract the file and find the subdirectory for the MFC290. Extract the contents to a directory of your choice.

    Go to the SCRIPTS subdirectory of the extracted file/folders. Right click on the file labeled "cupswrappermfc290c", go to Properties, Permissions tab and make it executable.

    Use Applications>Accessories>Terminal and then navigate to the downloaded directory where SCRIPT is located. Now type the following:

    sudo ./cupswrappermfc290c

    Enter your password when prompted and the printer should show up in your list of printers. From there you just need to right-click, Properties and change the device URL to either USB or SMB if it is shared on a Windows workgroup.
