If you want your printer driver to be installed automatically in future versions of Ubuntu, these steps need to be taken:
At first you should ask your printer manufacturer for a Linux driver for your specific printer model.
Secondly you should also ask you manufacturer to provide a distribution independent driver package as described here:, so we can implement this specification: in future versions of Ubuntu that will automatically install your printer driver.

Since the software cannot be located, closing the bug. Please feel free to reopen if the software reappears and has a satisfactory license for inclusion in Ubuntu.
