Have you looked in project's CVS archive?
There are bits and pieces of code there.
The trick is to get the device to talk. For USB you just
use one of the bulk endpoints, for parport see my code in CVS.
The protocol itself is pretty dumb, you basically
send short ESC-sequences and the device sends the
data back. It is partially documented here:
I since posted some updates on brother-mfc-devel@...
I'm unable to access it right now, for some reasons
it says "not yet archived" which is bull*,
it worked last time I looked, I just hope it's still there.
If you have any further questions, please ask.
