I'm having a bit of trouble with printer drivers for my printer. Canon offers a deb and an rpm, but obviously neither of those are useful. They also offer a source tarball but I swear it's only purpose is to build either the deb or the rpm. There is no configuration in the root of the tar or anything.
With great difficulty I was able to compile the various sub-units of the driver and copy the created peices manually to where the build rules for the deb said they needed to go.
And it worked, mostly. Still wasn't 100% though. Wondering if someone who is smarter than I can work up an eopkg or script or something to help me out. My linux skills of three days aren't sufficient to complete the task.
