Thumbs down Canon LBP 800 compatible w/ Linux or not?


http://www.mandrivalinux.com/en/hard...cher&id=974920
sais it is.

http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_pr...=Canon-LBP-800 sais it's not.

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Hardware-HOWTO/printers.html

Does the truth always have to be so deep in the ocean?!

Linuxprinting mentions some beta reverse engineered drivers... I suppose this could mean it is _possible_ to make this printers to work... but it doesn't meanit is considered "stable" or "reliable".

well, maybe you wont be able to print a page... beta mean beta, don't expect too much from it
Why are you asking? If you have this printer you won't loose anythign trying. If you don't buying another model might be a better idea.

OK, it's not. period.

Mandriva detects it as 'Cannon LBP-800', but asks me to chose a driver. There is no driver for this POS.

have you tried this one? It's not for the exact same model, but maybe it could work : http://www.boichat.ch/nicolas/capt/

It won't work. LBP-810 has both parallel & USB, while mine is parallel.
Do/did you have a similar problem?

(Make sure it's USB/Parallel:
