Default A Laser Printer that Works Easily!

I just bought a Brother MFC-L2770CDW. Graphical print jobs work perfectly with lpd using the following printcap snippet:
Code:
lp|BrotherMFC-L3770CDW:\
:lap:\
:sh:\
:rm=[insert your hostname or address]:\
:rp=raw:\
:sd=/var/spool/lpd:\
:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:
Printing text files will require a CR2CRLF filter that I don't have in yet, and likely will want a different queue, but PDFs and printing from LibreOffice, xpdf, browsers works nicely. It seems that the Brother Universal Driver just generates BRscript (their PostScript) so apps that send PostScript are fine.
