I have a Canon bjc4000 and I haven't had any problems printing to it
(ok, it took me a while to figure out that my lpt port had been turned
off in the bios for windoze). I've never even used the printer setup.
Is the printer in your /etc/printcap file? I'm a linux novice so
that's about as much as I know about printing. ;-)
