I have a Brother MFC 7220 Printer, and I had to install the driver from the Brother website to get that working.  I've got a dual screen setup working. I'm planning on using this as a single-use computer for internet banking and personal finances.

One weird thing is that to drag and drop something on the screen, I can't use the touchpad but if I use the track button in the middle of the keyboard, that works.

did it work from the LiveUSB ?

and is it just on the desktop where you cannot drag/drop .. or can't you drag/drop in the file manager either ?

Today I connected a Logitech M705 wireless mouse, and it was recognized, and worked flawlessly.  Very nice.

I then retried using the touchpad to drag and drop, and copy and paste, and that worked too.  So it must have been operator error by me yesterday.

Cool, glad to hear it's working now whatever the cause :)
