Subject description: to have a better understanding and better luck with printing
 

Printer listings here : http://www.openprinting.org/printers

Printer Driver Listings here : http://www.openprinting.org/drivers

Printer Compatibility Database for more general information here : http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/database/databaseintro

The X Printing Panel.
From website :
The X Printing Panel (XPP) is a completely free (under the GNU General Public License - GPL) tool for easy choosing of the desired printer out of a list of all available printers and for setting printer options by an easy-to-use graphical user interface. One simply calls the program (xpp) instead of the usual utilities (lpr or lp) at the command line or out of applications.

More information about X Printing Panel here : http://cups.sourceforge.net/xpp/

Printing with Puppy, or with Linux in general, is sometimes a pain... So any information that helps in this matter is welcomed.

Did you get your Brother printer working using the instructions here?

Sending newcomers to openprinting.org is a bad idea. They will usually end up at the vendor's web site and will try to install the driver using methods that only work with mainstream Linuxes.

As usual, the first place to look is How to Install your Printer/Scanner in Puppy.
