I need to install cups 1.7.1 on my Ubuntu 12.04, because of cups filter gstoraster bug.

I tried to install it from source:

sudo make install

but the service does not start.

I reinstalled from repositories but the version is 1.5.2-9ubuntu1 and suffers from the bug cited above. How can I do it?

I tried to search for a ppa but I could not find it.

Any suggestions?
