Subject: has anyone added a brother MFC7460DN printer to their rawhide system?

  i've been fighting for the last couple of hours to add a network
printer to my rawhide system. the shared work area where i hang out
has a brother MFC7460DN printer on the network, at, and
i've verified that i can ping it, so that's a start.

  i've read a few different alleged installation instructions which
all seem to differ. what's the recommended recipe for this?

  googling a while ago brought me here:


so i downloaded both lpr and cups rpm packages from brother and
installed them. i'm not sure if i need to install "a2ps", and i'd
rather not as it would drag down a ton of dependencies.

  i've browsed to localhost:631 to see if i can add a printer there,
but it seems that it sets up a new printer as if it's connnected via
USB and not on the network.

  i'm going to keep messing around, but if anyone out there has set up
that printer (or something suitably similar), i'm open to guidance.
