Re: Cups seems broken under 12.04 LTS...
This may be slightly off topic, but I can report that I have gotten my Canon MP620 working in Siduction 12.1 (a derivative of Debian sid), which is using CUPS 1.5.3. It was not easy, because CUPS detected the printer, but not its address. So I followed some instructions in the CUPS doc to add the printer to my hosts file and add its MAC address and IP address to dhcpd.conf. Viola!
