Thank you very much! I did not find Omni drivers though. However, I did find very detailed instructions on how to modify the default configuration for a Canon S800 printer that is using gimp-print drivers that makes an Canon S520 run. So I decided to give it a shot.

I found in the Gimp-print drivers in my Ports so installed them. Then got the Cups up and running. The test print was so much better than what my omni drivers with a Canon S8500 can do on the Linux side that I went over to the Linux side and changed them as well.

I do not know if this will be of any help or not, but you might want to
check it out. This is the URL where I located a driver for my Canon S630

Good Luck!
