Hello,

Just had a look at that link. They also use the ip2200 driver apparently. So if it works with that one, you must have done something wrong or have forgotten something. Since it's configured using CUPS in those instructions, you should be able to try that in your installation. The only thing you don't need to do is convert the package since Fedora is RPM based, if you can download and extract the indicated driver, you can install directly with rpm.

Kind regards,

Eric
