I am trying to install the drivers for a Canon Color imageCLASS MF8380Cdw in a 64-bit installation of Ubuntu 12.10. Since Ubuntu did not contain the drivers, I needed to download the drivers for this printer from Canon's website. Since it only contained 64-bit drivers for an RPM-based distribution of Linux, I needed to use Alien to convert the packages to the .deb format before installing them. However, I am not sure how to proceed from here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I just setup this exact printer on 2 Ubuntu 64-bit 12.04 desktops. Here's the documentation that I wrote, hope this also works on 12.10.
