IP4300 driver for Kubuntu 7.10
 
I'm new to Kubuntu but I found an article when searching for a driver for my IP4300 Canon printer. I downloaded the tar file and the following is my attempts to install it from the instructions. The exact address of the tar file is /home/<user name>/downloads if that is needed. Thank you for your help in advance. I know it's tough to deal with long time windows converts.

Any reason you're not using the version in the repos?

Installing cupsys-driver-gutenprint will give you 5.0.1.

This package isn't a deb package. A deb package ends with .deb instead of .rpm

I'm pretty sure the package your looking for is libgutenprint2 do this: sudo
apt-get install libgutenprint2.

Let me know if you have any problems.

You can also open package manager Kmenu->system->adept manager and install it
that way, just do a search on gutenprint.

reading your answer I thought that not installing 'alien' by default is
a brilliant idea!
