The file :
/usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc
is deleted and re-created by the driver each time an application launches a print job.

So, the matter is to ensure that this file and the folder inf have sufficient permissions, and for doing that :
sudo chown daemon:lp /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc
sudo chmod 664 /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc
sudo chown root:lp /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf
sudo chmod 775 /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf
and make sure your user is in the group lp.

… and, although it is suggested by cp-wwww, it is not necessary to be root to run the command :
brprintconf_hl4150cdn -pt A4

If your print job does not have these permissions, your print settings for this job will not be applied.

For A4 paper size login as root and run:
brprintconf_hl4150cdn -pt A4

then you can check the file /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc for the PageSize parameter if it set to A4

Seems like the paper format is hard coded in the driver and takes precedence over the CUPS settings ! I had to edit /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc and set the proper paper format (A4 in my case) to get the print layout correct.

Thank you for this package.
I have some problems with it, although install did well.

Log install is here :
http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=xssYe4yh

But when I print anything, (with LibreOffice, or Adobe PDF Reader, or whatever), I cannot get double-sided printing, or whatever else like toner save on, or color mono…
It looks like cupswrapper is not working, for any printing option is not taken.

Any idea ?

Under Ubuntu 10.04 64 bits, everythink is working well, with CUPS 1.4.x
On Archlinux 64 bits, CUPS is 1.6.x.

It is the last wrong thing so I can leave Ubuntu and definitively adopt archlinux.

Edit : I could fix it doing that :
sudo chown daemon:nobody /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc
sudo chmod 666 /usr/share/Brother/Printer/hl4150cdn/inf/brhl4150cdnrc

This probably works with the 4150CDW as well, but I don't have one of those to test with.
