One thing with Brother printer installations is that they seem to install a USB connection unless told otherwise. I use Ubuntu-Gnome (gnome shell) so I'm not certain which printer app comes in 13.10. If it's the same one as gnome-shell, it's very limited. Part of my initial install is to install "system-config-printer" found in the repositories. I know Mint and Xubuntu use this by default and I think Lubuntu does as well. Brother printers seem very similar to H.P. printers. I've had very good luck assigning a static I.O. address to the printer then in the 'system-config-printer' device URI window I use this:
where xxx=i.p. address assigned to the printer. There are a number of network connection choices offered but I've had good luck with this so have stayed with it. Brother also has available 2 installer scripts that seems to work quite well. One is 1.0.4-1 which only installs the printer. 2.0.0-1 install both printer and scanner drivers. There are two bugs 'normal user USB' edit and another bug which requires copying files manually still need to be done after install.
Here is the 'normal USB user' fix:
The installer problem is addressed under this question. It's the 4th item.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 or higher. I cannot scan from my Brother Machine.
