[cups] Installing Brother HL-2270DW

I am attempting to install a Brother HL-2270DW and not having success to 
print.  I have tried to install with the Brother Driver Install Tool and 
through CUPS using the Foomatic driver.  Through CUPS the print job 
status is ' Idle - "Filter failed" '.

I am installing on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit.  This printer was successfully 
installed on Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit.  I noticed during the install the 
Brother install tool has i386 instead of amd64 in the file name, 
indicating to me this is a 32-bit deb file instead of 64-bit.  Searching 
for a 64-bit install file has not yielded anything.

Hope someone can help
