I have a Brother HL-5460CN (ink-jet print, fax, scan, copy).  A few years old
now.  Upon upgrade to Centos 6 printing no longer worked - the config had
dropped out of cups.  Brother were not very interested - I got the impression:
it was not a current model, so why bother.

I got it going by hacking some software from the old machine image; not user friendly.
