Ubuntu ships with the splix drivers, not a proprietary driver. (At
least this is true for Hardy Heron.) The splix source is available
from splix.ap2c.org. You will need the cups-devel and cupsddk
packages installed to compile and install the splix drivers.
Unfortunately, to my knowledge, the splix has not been packaged for
Fedora.

Fedora doesn't package non-upstream kernel modules as separate packages
within the repository anymore. Either the kernel package is directly
patched or the module doesn't exist within the official Fedora repository.
