Installing a Brother MFC-240C on 12.10

http://askubuntu.com – I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10, 64-bit, with encryption, on my laptop. I've got an old Brother MFC-240C that's connected via a USB port. I was able to locate the appropriate drivers on the Brother web site- mfc240clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm and mfc240ccupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm - and install them. My laptop sees the printer, and detects when I unplug it or turn it off, but when I try to send print jobs to it, it doesn't respond. The printer worked fine when I had Windows installed on my laptop, so I know it's not that. Has anyone run into this problem? Any pointers would be helpful. (HowTos)
