I'm on Ubuntu 13.04 64bit and I can't install the last canon driver, downloaded from the official site. I need them for work with my Canon i-SENSYS LBP5000 Laser Printer.

I use The original driver package on the canon website. After installation I connect the print but it is not recognized –  amedeo Dec 23 '13 at 13:40
according to the website the driver is constructed for ubuntu 7 we are on 13.4 May be they have to rewrite it. Try to recompile it with the source and the build essential and checkinstall –  Josh Dec 28 '13 at 20:46
