fedora 7, printing problem.


Hi i'am hawke, I'm using FC7 and have printing problems.
My printer is a Canon Pixma MP160, every time I print something the printer starts operating but all pages turn out blank (the cartridge/toner is not empty bacause I have no problems printing in windows).
I'm a newbie to printing under linux so any help is apreciated .. thank you in advance

Canon, in general, isn't well supported by open source drivers, unfortunately. You might want to look into TurborPrint instead: http://www.turboprint.info/printers.html
Your specific model is listed.

Sorry I can't help with your problem. If you want printers that work well with Linux, then I suggest you look for HP or Epson printers because they are well supported in Linux, *BSD and other Unix OSes.
