I own a Canon Pixma iP1000 provided by my employer and use turboprint as the drivers. All works/worked well.
I am dabbling with Debian testing at the moment (Etch) and one of the bugs that I am trying to iron out relates to getting my printer to work.
First, under stable, I simply ran xtpsetup in turboprint and added my printer from the list. Pas de problem, black, colour all good.
Running through the same under Etch has produced a strange problem:
The printed is registered as usb://Canon/iP1000
Sending a testpage gives the message: Processing page 1...
But no output from the printer
The printer is also registered under CUPS and shows the testpage queued up. Still no output if I sent a testpage from CUPS as well.
All pretty standard so far, obviously a config. problem...
Opening Abiword and printing a document from there...
It works fine!
This is confusing now....
I haven't tried gimp as yet but adobe acrobat does not print and evince does. I use adobe for its multiple page per sheet facility that evince has but in non functional.
Does anyone have any ideas about this Jekyll and Hyde situation?

Googling has shown up a black and white situation, it works or it does not...
