This is the upgrade of their popular portable bubble jet that laptop users have been lugging around for a decade now. Unfortunately, YaST detects it but doesn't have a driver. I've tried a few of the other ones, and in text mode I can print with it using an older bubble jet PPD, but in graphics mode everything is compressed and I can't print color at all.
Anyways, any help setting up this printer in SuSE 9.3 Pro would be greatly appreciated. <mini_rant begin> I don't know whats happened to google lately, but it never seems to return relevant results on the first page anymore, just a bunch of sites paying to be first on the list it seems. About time for a new search engine I think. If google keeps this up they'll be relegated to the pile of 'has-been' search engines, like the once popular webcrawler. <mini_rant end>
This site provides a commercial driver for a lot of Canon printers. They sell the drivers but they have a limited free-version that works pretty well for common printing needs. See if it is listed on there and if so you are set.
