Hello. 
 
Thanks for show me the drivers location. 
 
I've installed the bjfiltercups-2.3-0.i386.rpm and bjfilteri250-2.3-0.i386.rpm 
after generate the debs with alien like you. 
bjfilteri250_2.3-1_i386.deb 
bjfiltercups_2.3-1_i386.deb 
 
But after this, I had to install: 
libxml1 
libglade0 
libpng2 
because some libraries was missed (You can check it with ldd). 
 
Now the printer works fine in Debian sarge. :D 

i just can say the printer works, but not that fine ;) it has still some problems to fetch / guess the right color. i will put it in here, if i find a solution.


... after a few tries i found out, that it is not the driver that is messing around with the colors, it is my printer: after printing some pages it was allmost ok,... i think it spent too much time in the corner.
