This gave me trouble in the past as well, causing me to use the
non-free drivers from Brothers site.  

A better solution is to install "system-config-printer" through
synaptic and set up the printer through cups, of course you need to
install cups as well, if not I believe system-config-printer will pull
it in as a dependency. 

You may need to reboot after this so the system will load and recognize

Plug in your printer, run the above program and it should automatically
locate and recommend a free driver for you.  I have a Brother HL2270DW
and the "Generic PCL Laser Printer" works perfectly!
