Unfortunately, I have been unable to print a test page. The HL was not among the Brother models listed as having drivers included with the distro, so I went to the Brother webside, where I downloaded and installed the debian package they provide for this printer.

Unfortunately, it appears the driver doesn’t support duplex printing. This ubuntk laserjet is the Wifi enabled cousin of the above mentioned model HLN. If you’re going to pool the printer, this might become an issue As of today, Brother has acknowledged the bug report, might change over time Select “Brother” from the drop down “Manufacturer” menu.
If it was and your double sided printing option is grayed out then Brother probably did not enable that option in their driver. Seems to be important to install the lpr driver brrother and then the Cupswrapper driver – after that all works fine with the printer setup as a network printer with an ip address.

Installed as the HL, seems uguntu work ok. Ubuntu drivers downloaded from the brother site and installed.
