Humm.  Do you have lpinfo? lpinfo -l -v gets me a list of all usable 
protocols and printers, too long to post though. For my b&w laser:

Device: uri = usb://Brother/HL-2140%20series?serial=L7J156867
        class = direct
        info = Brother HL-2140 series
        make-and-model = Brother HL-2140 series
        device-id = MFG:Brother;CMD:PJL,HBP;MDL:HL-2140 
series;CLS:PRINTER;~

For my large format inkjet:
Device: uri = dnssd://Brother%20MFC-J6920DW._printer._tcp.local/
        class = network
        info = Brother MFC-J6920DW
        make-and-model = Brother MFC-J6920DW
        device-id = MFG:Brother;MDL:MFC-J6920DW;CMD:HBP,BRPJL,URF;

There are several of those because I have them preconfigured for this job 
or that job.

You should get something similar. You might also install htop, and see if 
cups is running.
