As Sankarshan da said, they can also be directly downloaded after
enabling rpmfusion repos. You should always use the rpm from repos.
Only reason I suggested building from source, because I didn't know
the correct packages..;)

Simply follow previous steps and instead of doing
# ./getweb p1007
copy the img file to foo2zjs directory and then run
# make install install-hotplug cups

That will do your job..Please let us know!!!!

As this is your first mail to list, a few words about mailing lists

1. Please be a bit elaborate and include relevant details(Referring to
your modem mail, the model no, make etc...)
2. Please try not to send html mails to mailing lists unless
absolutely necessary.
3. Please host the screenshots and documents somewhere and pass the
link with the mail.
That keeps traffic exchange to a minimum.
