rpm version of cupsys-bsd


I have been advised that cupsys-bsd is the answer to my problem of being unable to print
web pages to my Lemark Z42 inkjet.
I need an rpm version of the Debian cupsys- bsd ; I believe this is called cupsys-client
but where to find it? "rpm cupsys-client" or "Redhat cupsys-client" put into Google gives zero hits.
I have also been advised to use xprint but have been unable to source that also
I have no problem printing text only files using cups.

Thanks Dep
I got cupsys-bsd in rpm format, from your suggested source
However, could not install due to 3 errors 'conflict with cups!' I could not uninstall cups because it is part of the basic Redhat system (not an add-on).
so I'm back to square 1.
My printer driver is gimp-print (advised by the system
Other drivers are gimp-print ijs & drv-42.
I can print text but no graphics.

Thank you Dep that gives me a few more avenues to explore.
My system had already chosen gimp-print as its recommended driver although it did not, in practice, work except for text.-only files. I shall persevere!
I have now downloaded the KDEPrint Handbook which gives details of an Add printer Wizard which I shall try.
