I have a computer with Xandros and a Brother MFC240c printer. I installed the drivers and it is working beautifully. The issue is: Why is the printer working with no LPD daemon? I couldn't find one on this computer, maybe I'm just not lookin in the right place. It's not a problem, 'cause it is working, but I'm just curious.

Because the printing system in Linux is now CUPS. The LPD daemon has not been used since about kernel 2.2, there are other printing systems but CUPS
supports many prnters and is available for all modern distros.
