Getting printer drivers for the Canon
MF8350 to work
under Ubuntu is a big pain in the behind. (Installation using custom
scripts that abuse both
/usr/local/lib and ultimately
fail to compile for obscure reasons.)
My colleague found that the easiest way to get it to work, was
converting the RPM to DEB using
alien(1). For your enjoyment, here are
the two debian packages needed for Ubuntu 10.04 (amd64):
They might work on other distro’s or Ubuntu versions too. YMMV.
Look at the updated note for an updated driver.
