PPD file for Brother HL-2240D


First, install HPIJS. The following command works for Debian and similar systems:

apt-get install printer-driver-hpijs

Then, as root, download the PPD files into /usr/share/ppd/custom/:

cd /usr/share/ppd/custom
wget -c
wget -c
chmod 644 *

That's it! Run the CUPS web interface, and you'll be presented the drivers for Brother HL-2240D.
