Printer supports PJL.
Had trouble finding notes for hl-1020. Documentation was for hl-1020/hl-820.
Followed instructions on this page for hl-820. Works well with gs hl7x0 driver.
SourceForge Foomatic bug #121159 reports that the bl7x0 driver prints with an offset to the right of about half a page. This happens only for printing in the default resolution of 300 dpi. Make sure that Ghostscript prints with 600 dpi (option "-r600").
Brother publishes proprietary Linux drivers for CUPS and LPD for most of their laser printers and multi-function devices, including SANE drivers for the scanners. They can be downloaded free of charge on their Linux driver page.
Consumables/Refills: toner cart good for 2,400 sheet
