AFAIR, this is one of the difficult to get working models in FreeBSD (or linux for that matter). CUPS does not support it directly (it is a 'winprinter'). Canon has a linux driver here: http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0022414.asp?model= and this can probably be adapted (if if contains a PPD for CUPS) but this may not be the easiest task. Other than that, I always found the following wiki entry in desktopbsd.net easy to follow for a successful CUPS setup: http://desktopbsd.net/wiki/doku.php?id=doc:printing _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
