    Thank you kimnzl. Your solution worked for me. I am using 11.04 64-bit.

    I used KIMNZLs process to get mine working too - albeit as a generic PCL6 printer. At least it works....

    EDIT: 11.04 64bit......

    Brother has published a solution to:

    •I cannot install Monochrome Laser Printer driver on Ubuntu11.4(64bit).
    at their web site.

    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...rn.html#f00098

    It involves a patch file. I intend to test tonight.

    So, I was able to get it to work wirelessly. Here's what I did.

    I downloaded and ran the script from Brother mentioned by sleon (http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...rn.html#f00090). When it reached the point in the script when it asked to specify a URI, I didn't know which one to select, so I tried the ipp one. It did not work.

    So, I proceeded to try to add the printer via the cups interface at http://localhost:631. It found multiple network printer options. The correct one is dnssd://Brother%20HL-2270DW%20series._pdl-datastream._tcp.local/. Then, I used the PPD file at /usr/share/cups/model/HL2270DW.ppd. I assume it was installed by the script above.

    IT WORKED! I suspect that it may also have worked if, when I ran the above script, I selected the one with 'datastream' in it, but I am unwilling to try it now that it works.

    But are you running 11.04 (Your signature says 10.10). This thread is specific to 11.04. I was having problems with 11.04 64-bit and wifi printing. I am following brothers website install instructions without success http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/instruction_prn3.html

    After trying to install drivers
    Code:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-all hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
    I get an error: "dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of hl2270dwlpr:i386:
    hl2270dwlpr:i386 depends on libc6 (>= 2.3.4-1)."

    I was stuck at getting the driver installed. I could connect to printer via wifi, but my driver .ppd file is not present/installed when I look at /usr/share/cups/model/.

    After several hours, I followed alliance1975 post #13 of this thread (Thanks!), and was able to get wifi printing working.
    I posted my steps at and the patched driver files at chadchenault.blogspot.com
