How to get a Canon i560 working on Debian with CUPS

This is very brief notes on how I managed to get my Canon i560 working properly with Debian. From download:

su to root for the rest of the steps

Convert to debs :

 alien --to-deb bjfilterpixus560i-2.4-0.i386.rpm 
 alien --to-deb bjfiltercups-2.4-0.i386.rpm 
dpkg --install *.deb
Setup the required symlinks:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s
ln -s
ln -s
ln -s
ln -s
ln -s
Then create a new printer using the cups interface
