After the update this past weekend my desktop printers all stopped working. I have two network printers and one usb printer. All are Brother printers. After many gyrations I got the two network printers (not sure what did the trick). However, the usb printer does not work anymore (HL-2140). It has worked great for years. Also, I plugged its usb cable into a Linux laptop (Mint 17) and it was instantly recognized and auto-installed AND printed perfectly.
The usb printer shows up in lsusb:
# lsusb ... Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04f9:0033 Brother Industries, Ltd ...
lpinfo doesn’t see the usb printer:

I have re-installed “brother-hl2140 2.0.2_1-4” to no avail.
