There is no driver to choose specific for this this printer. Anyone knows of a compatible driver for this model? I have tested other random models models, but I haven't found anything valid. Brother has some RPMs in the printer web page, but they seem 32 bit only.

Any experience configuring this printer in Linux?

I print to my Brother MFC-5460CN (aaaaaancient!, but the principle's the same) printer on Fedora 20 x86_64 using the Brother 32-bit drivers, installed via their RPMs. They work fine on 64-bit linux (which is probably why Brother doesn't bother distributing 64-bit RPMs), and the only 32-bit dependency required is glibc.i686 which you probably already have installed.

I ended running a shell script from the Brother web page. It installed those 32 bit RPMs and the printer now works ok. Thank you.
