How do I install this printer on Linux Mint. I've downloaded the recommended driver (ip1500). This is the file: bjfilter-pixmaip1500-2.50-2.i386.rpm. Everything set up okay using add printer in Mint. But when I did a test page, nothing happened except a stall at 29 percent.

The link which explains the ip1500 driver install is:
