Public bug reported:

Ubuntu is recognizing my Dell E525w color laser printer by default on my
network, but is not finding a suitable applicable driver to install via
gnome-control-center. Dell has an open-source driver and driver kit for
all their printers, all OSes applicable, so I do not see there being a
problem pre-packaging the Dell Open Print Driver  with Ubuntu distros.

Please pre-package Dell Open Print Driver(s) into CUPS and Ubuntu.
