Linuxprinting.org is your friend:

Partial quotation:

  Recommended driver:

  Works fine out of the box. slightly off center horizontally. It is
  possible to use alignmargins to adjust the margins by using X=-120,
  Y=-24, ml=14.0, mb=9.5, mr=10.8, mt=14.9. Resolutions up to 600x600 work
  fine, but 1200x600 and 2400x600 don't.
  PPD file for Brother HL-2040 [link]
  I can endorse it as a home monochrome laser [link to notes]
