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/lib and /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):
cndrvcups-common_2.20-2_amd64.deb
cndrvcups-ufr2-uk_2.20-2_amd64.deb

They might work on other distro’s or Ubuntu versions too. YMMV.

Update 2012-12-12

Look at the updated note for an updated driver.
