I have a brother mfc-440cn printer that I would like to use with my computer. I have the driver install cd but it only has the drivers for mac and windows and I have ubuntu 11.04 on my machine. I searched for solutions but there was only posts from back in 2008.

When i try to add the printer it searches for a driver, doesnt find one then lets me select one. I select brother and there is then a ton of brother drivers but none for my specific model of printer. I have gone to the brother website and downloaded the driver for linux but it opens up with the ubuntu software center and says it not good quality and I shouldnt install it because it could harm my system.

If anyone has any tips or if you have this printer working I would really appreciate some help as I am a bit of a newby with Ubuntu still.

Cheers.

Is there another driver (for a different model printer) that will work for this printer?
