Update!

I found a .deb but it is i386 and i have amd64. then I found the source here http://sourceforge.net/projects/cupsdriverkodak/files/. Now if I install this should it allow me to print with the printer over LAN? If yes then I guess onto learning on how to make a .dep

Okay I actually downloaded the source and followed the install and it worked out good. So I just need to learn how to make .deb packages and it will be all gravy
