How to fix Brother printer not printing PDF files

I bought a Brother printer (HL-L2350DW) and it refused to print PDF files. An error message appeared in Windows saying something like "Brother HL-L2350DW could not print the PDF file" when attempting to print. When I installed driver software i chose to only install the "Printer driver" thinking that would be enough so that I wont have to install unnecessary bloatware, but I was wrong.

After installing the recommended "Full driver & software package" https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=hll2350dw_us_eu_as&os=10013 I was able to print PDF files. There does not seem to be any bloatware in that installation though so it's alright.
