@timofonic: If you look on brothers site for drivers for your printer what drivers are listed? The reason for me to create this package was that the specific (non-generic) driver for my printer was buggy (problem with two-sided printing etc) and was replaced by brother with this more "generic" and has worked without issues since. So if brother lists this driver for your model then you should use "brother-brgenml1".

What's better to install? Custom (brother-mfc-l2700dw) or generic (brother-brgenml1)? I'm confused

See this example...

Works with Brother MFC-7440N Printer

Thanks :)

Worked with MFC-7360N only after I installed the package a2ps (driving me almost crazy). I suggest to add it to this package's dependencies.
