Canon S820D, Exists? (Need Help With Drivers and Network Printer)


I have a TrendNET TE100-P1P print server with a Canon S820D attached. The server's html page shows the printer, IDs it correctly, and says it is ready. I am trying to connect my Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper) install to this print setver. CUPS tells me I need a driver, but as far as I can tell, the S820 never existed. I can not find any mention of it on LinuxPrinting.org, supported or not. I am hoping someone more clever than I can find something online about this printer, or someone that has this printer working could give me some pointers. I'll be happy to give any more info if needed. -Matt

TurboPrint appears to support the S820. See the link in my sig.

Hmm, I was hoping not to have to buy software, but if it can't be helped then it can't. I still think there should be a way to print to the print server without needing to have linux drivers, the thing seems to recognize it and know what to do with it. Maybe not though. I guess I could just setup a fileshare on the only Windoze machine left in the house and drop files needing printed there, then go in that room and print them. If i'm doing that though, it seems stupid to have a print server on the network. Anyone have any suggestions?
