MP550 und MINT 14.04 LTS 32-bit

It is always an adventure to install a printer. This time "libtiff4" is missing, because it is not more available in 14.04. libtiff5 is the new version.

Thus the "cnijfilter-mp550series_3.20-1_i386.deb" package needs to be adjusted to get the dependencies to work:

1. dpkg -x [package].deb common
2. dpkg --control [package].deb
3. nano DEBIAN/control
4. replace the "Depends" line with:
Depends: cnijfilter-common (>= 3.20-1), libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.12.4), libc6 (>= 2.7), libcupsys2 (>= 1.2.1) | libcups2, libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.35.9), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.8.0), libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4), libpopt0 (>= 1.14), libtiff5 (>= 4.0.3), libxml2 (>= 2.7.4)
5. cp -a DEBIAN/ common/
6. dpkg -b common [package].deb
7. rm -rf common DEBIAN
8. Now run the install script!
Thanks to askubuntu!

The scanner installation (Scangear) went this time smooth and without any issues. What a relief!
