How to Set Up a Brother MFC-5890cn Printer on 64bit Ubuntu Linux

I have just spent about 2 days trying to get my printer at the shop working and I finally did so i figured I would share the results of two days of head bashing on the keyboard.  It seems the MFC-5890cn is not a very popular printer so there are no drivers included with CUPS for it. Normally you can go to Linux Printing and get a PPD file but in this situation the printer was not listed in Linux printing. Below I will outline the steps I used to get this printer going in Linux.

How To Open RWA Files, View .rwa Files

Earlier today a client of mine sent over a .rwa file for me to figure out how to open for him. After the initial searching I found an answer on Yahoo that claimed .rwa files were from some ReliaSoft application called WeiBull++ and also stated that it was possible that the incorrect file association had been made. I was fairly confident neither of these were true in my case since the file was called payroll_reports.rwa I assumed that it was from my clients payroll processing company. I went back to the email that the client had forwarded to me and noticed that the initial email came from the epaylogic.com domain. I was able to find the information necessary to open the RWA file on the Paylogic site.
