Hello this is my very first post. I have spent a couple hours tracking leads on other posts relating to installing .deb drivers for my Canon MF4150 printer/scanner. From what I read, I should rule out using the scanner.

My immediate need is to get the printer driver installed.

I downloaded the driver and opened the folder for 32 bit systems, in it there were two .deb files

cndrvcups-common_2.10-1_i386.deb
and cndrvcups-ufr2-uk_2.10-1_i386.deb

When I try to extract these each one seems dependent on the other "Dependency is not satisfiable: gs-esp" and "Dependency is not satisfiable: cndrvcups-common (>= 2.10)"

I extracted these files to my home directory - Is there a better place to start the .deb install process?

I followed the instructions in the following thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1592487

and installed this transitional package http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...ntu1.2_all.deb

I would really like to understand the process of unzipping the file, saving it to the correct place, and installing it using the command line if possible, but just getting my printer running would be great.
