Thanks for your directions @FredericChopin, I've patched the lpdwrapper file as in mfcj3530dw package.

Yes, after editing /usr/lib/cups/filters/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5335dw as described below, the printer works now, with good quality.

The driver shipped with cups had very bad quality, like 100dpi printouts and had not all the options, which this driver provides.

I just checked the package brother-mfc-j5330dw for the almost identical printer and they have a patch in the PKGBUILD exactly adjusting the lines in the wrapper file.

Thanks for your feedback, however I can't make the package work. Finally I used Google Cloud Print to make it work. Does the printer works for you?

Thank you for providing the driver package.

I had to manually adjust the wrapper file: brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5335dw in /usr/lib/cups/filters and change/add the variables

$PRINTER="mfcj5335dw"; $basedir = "/opt/brother/Printers/mfcj5335dw/";

Else the command: cp $basedir/inf/br${PRINTER}rc $TEMPRC; will fail with the error

cp: cannot stat '/usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5335dw/inf/brusrlibcupsfilterbrother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5335dwrc': Not a directory

Maybe this could be included to the package in a sane way.
