I have spent 4 days of over 20 hours trying to get my printer to recognize in 13.10. I have installed and un-installed both Ubuntu 13.10 and the printer numerous times. I have spent hours researching this. This is my last hope!

I can get the printer to install as a usb printer, but it is a network printer. The printer works fine on my windows 7 systems, but I want to use it with Ubuntu 13.10.

I have contacted Brother and was told that since Linux is so vast, they don't do much support (typical caned answer to get rid of someone). I have seen nothing pertaining to my particular problem.

Someone please HELP!
