Bug Description

Today I ran the software updater and rebooted. I now find that I am unable to print to Brother_HL_L8260CDW_series printer; all I get is garbage and a lot of wasted paper.

I am printing plain text. I have tried printing it from Evolution, Mousepad, and by piping it into lpr.

Power cycling the printer does not help.

I can print successfully from another PC with a native 18.04 installation (not upgraded from 16.xx).
