Thank you patstew for making this neat little PKGBUILD!

(It had been on my todo list for a year or two...)

For those who might be interested in how to make the connection with CUPS over wifi (WLAN): Brother advertises lpd on their website but the newer ipp works. The URI is: ipp://192.168.0.100/ipp/port1 where, 192.168.0.100 e.g. is your printer's IP address.

Instead of the IP address which might change, you can use the printer name found by CUPS, say BRZZZZZZZZZZZZZ as in ipp://BRZZZZZZZZZZZZZ/ipp/port1 . But to make it work, you have to follow all instructions in the avahi wiki page (install the avahi and nss-mdns packages, start avahi-daemon.service and edit /etc/nsswitch.conf as stated in the Hostname resolution paragraph).

That being done, the printer can be installed by, for instance:

$ lpinfo --include-schemes dnssd -v
network dnssd://Brother%20HL-L8260CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e0123456-78aa-90aa-0000-a99999999999
$ lpadmin -p brother_hl-l8260cdw-wlan -v dnssd://Brother%20HL-L8260CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=uuid=e0123456-78aa-90aa-0000-a99999999999
