You'll see that foomatic-filters-ppds was only included for dapper and edgy.

So, the easy way is to:
Download foomatic-filters-ppds
Download for all available architectures Architecture 	Package Size
Installed Size 	Files
all 	11,273.1 kB	17536 kB 	[list of files]

click on 'all' and
select a mirror and download.

However, if you already have the file on your Suse box, why not just
copy it over to your Ubuntu system - /usr/share/ppd/openprinting/HP?
