Hi Ive just installed ubuntu for the 1st time and I am trying to get my printer to work the make of my printer is Brother the model is MFC-290c scanner/copy/printer when I click on printer and says searching for available drivers and it gave me a list of printers it has my make on it but it doesn't have the model so I went to a web site called brother soultion center and downloaded the LPR driver and it stil didn't work Is there anything else i shoud be doing ?
