Getting my printer to work again


After I install Xsane scanner utility. my ability to access my printer ceased. I have a all in one brother printer, MFC240C. It was working previous to this program. I have completely removed xsane from my system and downloaded the proper drivers for my printer. After rebooting, my system recognized my printer, but it keeps saying it can not detect the drivers. I was given a series of commands to enter in my terminal before when this happened, but I have misplaced them. I know I was told that a certain order must be did for the driver download. I am not sure if it is the lpr first or the cups driver first. Please note, my printer is supported from linux via brother web download site.....HELP. Thank you, John:( :dry:
