Agreed with @lordao, thank you for providing the package. Also, thank you @lordao for providing the workaround, that fixed my printing problem.

Can you please add the workaround to the post_install script?

I know this package hasn't been touched in a while, but I just wanted to thank you for providing it.

Also, if anyone is having trouble printing, you should symlink the filter instead of having the actual script in cups filters directory:

# rm /usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj497dw
# ln -s /opt/brother/Printers/mfcj497dw/cupswrapper/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj497dw /usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj497dw
