Generic text Only printing driver for CUPS!!!!!


I am using debian lenny 5.03 in i386 arq. but I used to have a machine with Ubuntu 9.04.

I am needing something that I only saw in Ubuntu .... its a Generic Text Only driver for CUPS,... I cannot find it anywhere in the web, not even in another distros of linux.

1) where can i download this driver (in ubuntu is under Generic -> Text Only of cups or using the gnome wizard to add it)

2) in case you dont know the answer for 1), how can I extract that driver from ubuntu and install it in debian ????
