Trying to install a Canon printer, and getting into trouble at some point (see this question, regarding the 12.10 part) I noticed that I had not followed exactly what Ubuntu Documentation recommended for 12.04: I had installed version 2.4 of the canon driver while the ubuntu website gave a link for v.2.3.
While with 2.4 i have stumbled on the step presented in that question, after removing drivers and trying to install 2.3 version (cndrvcups-common_2.30-1_i386), i have an unsatisfied dependency:
But how to install that?
Cannot find it in Synaptic
If i enter
apt-cache show ghostscript | grep ^Provides
i only get
apt-cache policy ghostscript is
