I'm using a Brother 5280DW. I just installed the PPD driver from Brother.

The problem, however, doesn't appear to be related to the driver but appears to be Linux related.

When I currently print out a web page or PDF file, the font's appearance is like that of a dot-matrix printer. When I print out from LibreOffice, then the fonts are smoothed and laser quality.

I thought this was "normal" (just another Linux annoyance) until... I installed a PPD driver from Brother. I initially installed the wrong one. When I printed out Web Page X, the font rendition was beautiful - as if I'd printed from Libre Office! I then installed the correct PPD and the font rendition (on the same web page) was once again terrible. I re-installed the wrong PPD file, but now the font rendition is also terrible (like it's always been)?!?

Question: What the heck is going on? Has anyone else run into this and solved it?

Why did it print the web page beautifully, once, and then never again?!?
