Network printer not detected correctly with Manjaro Gnome

I have a laptop installed with Manjaro KDE using kernel 5.10.42-1. When I open CUPS to add my printer, I see 3 options and I only have to select the 1st one.

Here is the driver and address found for my printer:

Driver: MFC-L8900CDW series - IPP Everywhere (color, 2-sided printing)

Connection: dnssd://Brother%20MFC-L8900CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af460d9a3

My problem is with my other computer with a freshly installed Manjaro Gnome using the 5.10.42-1 kernel. When I want to add the printer, I only get one option to select and the printer doesn’t push the driver to use.

Driver: Brother MFC-L8900CDW CUPS (color, 2-sided printing)

Connection: lpd://BRW5CEA1DA246FB/BINARY_P1

Then, when I want to print, it says the printer is disconnected. I believe this is not a Brother issue as this problem only happens with Manjaro Gnome. I swapped to KDE to have it working then back on Gnome it doesn’t.

My problem was solved following the 1st step in this post: Brother printer network support/install and setup - #18 by SLaItEr

sudo systemctl start avahi-daemon
sudo systemctl enable avahi-daemon
