So, how can I replace it with Cups 1.4.4-7 ?? This one works.
Can this be done by switching repositories ??
I have the .deb file for 1.4.4-7, but it doesn't install properly !
Assistance - please...

I have a Canon iP5000 that can work (to a degree) when attached directly to my Linux machine, but it wouldn't respond to print jobs when the printer was was attached to a server computer (also Linux). I was apparently able to find it and install it from my client machine, but when it came to printing, the printer didn't seem to be online. Extremely frustrating. I didn't have that problem with earlier versions of Linux (I'm now running Linux Mint 11 LXDE). Is there a newer version of CUPS now (that doesn't seem to work as well)?
I've always had quality issues with my Canon on Linux, namely stripy prints. I would consider another brand of printer (if I had the money).
