Thank you patstew for making this neat little PKGBUILD!

(It had been on my todo list for a year or two...)

For those who might be interested in how to make the connection with CUPS over wifi (WLAN): Brother advertises lpd on their website but the newer ipp works. The URI is: ipp:// where, e.g. is your printer's IP address.

Instead of the IP address which might change, you can use the printer name found by CUPS, say BRZZZZZZZZZZZZZ as in ipp://BRZZZZZZZZZZZZZ/ipp/port1 . But to make it work, you have to follow all instructions in the avahi wiki page (install the avahi and nss-mdns packages, start avahi-daemon.service and edit /etc/nsswitch.conf as stated in the Hostname resolution paragraph).

That being done, the printer can be installed by, for instance:

$ lpinfo --include-schemes dnssd -v
network dnssd://Brother%20HL-L8260CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e0123456-78aa-90aa-0000-a99999999999
$ lpadmin -p brother_hl-l8260cdw-wlan -v dnssd://Brother%20HL-L8260CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=uuid=e0123456-78aa-90aa-0000-a99999999999
