install canon ip 1880 in ubuntu

there’s some special thing about this canon 1p1880. it looks that everyone use it. and thanks God the linux driver available for free anyway.
for ubuntu 6.10 until 7.10 here are the list of files needed
1. cnijfilter-common-2.70-i386.deb
2. cnijfilter-ip1800-2.70-i386.deb
3. cek if your ubuntu already have libpng3 and libxml1 if not use apt-get install to retrieve it.
4. make the link from /usr/lib/libtiff.4.2.1.so to /usr/lib/libtiff.3.so
ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.4.2.1.so /usr/lib/libtiff.3.so

for ubuntu 8.04
1. u can use cnijfilter-common-2.70-i386.deb
2. but cnijfilter-ip1800-2.70-hardy.deb must be special for hardy
3. check for libpng3 and libxml1
4. create a link from /usr/lib/libtiff.4.2.1.so to /usr/lib/libtiff.3.so

but i found problem about the repo in hardy here beside the libpng3 and libxml1, i should install libglib1.2 and it’s dev, libgtk1.2 and it’s dev… so use your synaptic or sudo apt-get install to obtain them.
