for about two weeks (on an off, more off) I have been trying to get my canon pixma iP1500 to work in ubuntu 11.04 x64

i have trailed the web and found iP1500 wiki, and various others bits of info that "all" relate to installing the printer drivers in 32bit

I did find a snippet of info (cant remember where now) that showed how to force the extracter to make 64bit drivers which happened when i did it as shown

as im at the pulling my hair out stage (if i had any) i thought i would post on here before I go insane, linux might be free but it aint alf hard to work with, oh by the way the automatic driver finder didnt work with recommended generic and there is no iP1500 driver
