Ubuntu and Brother HL-2270DW

I tried out many more complicated methods of getting my Brother HL-2270DW to work with Ubuntu. This much simpler method worked great.

  1. Select Network Printer.  
  2. Often two will appear, choose the one that looks like "dnssd://Brother%20HL-2270DW%20series._pdl-datastream._tcp.local/"
  3. For Make and Model, select “Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer Foomatic/pxlcolor (recommended)”

Thats all there is to it.
