Thanks for the detailed installation instructions for the Pixma iP4500 
linux drivers from Canon.

I followed the instructions and everything went very smoothly apart from 
one minor problem. Using rpm2cpio and cpio to extract the files from 
cnijfilter-ip4500series-2.80-1.i386.rpm resulted in all the directories 
being created with mode 700. This resulted in "permission denied" 
errors when piping an ascii test file through a2ps and gs to cifip4500. 
After setting the directory permissions to 755 everything was fine and 
I now have a functional printer.

The output quality is much better than I could get with the gutenprint 
driver but the output is limited to 600 dpi so it's nothing like as 
good as the windows driver in high quality mode. But it is certainly 
good enough for normal day to day use and I don't mind switching to 
Windows for the occasional high quality photo print.
