How to Install Proprietary Printer drver (deb or rpm)?

Hi,

So, I need to install driver from this link:

https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hl3170cdw_all. In case link does not work it is Brother HL-3170CDW printer.

The manufacturer only provides Linux driver downloads for .rpm or .deb packages. So, I'd like to know if there is any established procedure for using DEB or RPM packages as the alternative is for me to manually attempt to place files and run scripts.

I am running XFCE4 desktop environment and will have no problem following terminal command instructions.

Thank you

I found this on the aur,i don't know if its the same printer but check it out and install it.
