You can download the drivers from Brother.

There is a HowTo from Ubuntu forums that may help you with the installation if you have trouble.

I've already tried that, but when i try to install, it says cannot install beacuse of DEB file size perimeters or something like that...

Im going to try to do it without the DEB, if anything happens, ill give you info on it.
