To each his own. I came to ubuntu from kubuntu for the
same reason you did.  I prefered the kubuntu-desktop,
seemed easier to use than ubuntu desktop, no flame
intended. I am currently using ubuntu-desktop and
getting used to it because of either a flaky alternate
cd I burned or a flaky computer and having to install
all the programs piece by piece. I can't comment to
intelligently on you driver problem but know there are
drivers other than cups which may have it but let the
experts have their say.  Personally I have Ubuntu
installed with the Kubuntu-desktop added and can use
either one as I choose.  This comes in handy when I
get instructions that I can't readily relate to in
Kubuntu, then I just switch to Ubu.  I may be wrong
but I would think that the module/drivers would be
available to both.  Can't go wrong by having both. 
Have fun,
