Subject description: (SOLVED)
 

I have just found DebianDog64 and quite like it. The only catch is there seems to be nothing in the menu structure about printing. I went to the Brother website and downloaded the relevant files dcpj125lpr and dcpj125cupswrapper, which I installed with dpkg. That went ok, but if I click Print in a program, no printer shows up.
Have I overlooked something?

See my message in the other thread.

Also, just in case, do "apt-get -f install" in terminal to get any missing dependencies.

Solved. Here's what I did.
Went to synaptic package manager and installed cups then used dpkg -i --force-all to install the 2 brother packages.
Here are the instructions from the Brother website:
For dpkg users:
1. Install the standard c library for 32bit applications (e.g. lib32stdc++6(Debian) or ia32-libs(Ubuntu))
2. Create some folders if it is required
2-1. Create /usr/lib/cups/filter if it does not exist.
Command1: mkdir /usr/lib/cups
Command2: mkdir /usr/lib/cups/filter

2-2. Create /usr/share/cups/model if it does not exist
Command: mkdir /usr/share/cups/model

3. Install the drivers using "--force-architecture" or "--force-all"option.

4. Copy brlpdwrapperXXX files under /usr/lib/cups/filter/ to /usr/lib64/cups/filter/
Command: cp /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper* /usr/lib64/cups/filter

5. Copy libbrXXXX files under /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib32/ if /usr/lib32 exists.
Command : cp /usr/lib/libbr* /usr/lib32/
