Need more info like model number and how connected. Check out this link to see if it is compatiable and how to set it up. http://www.linuxprinting.org/cups-doc.html

Checking over at the above link, for a i860 series says not compatiable. They call it a paper wieght. Checking the canon site shows no linux drivers either.

If you think of getting a different printer check the HP line. I have 3 HP printers under linux and all have worked great.

Thanks Brian1, You have saved me a few hours of frustration, just have to keep printing on MS until I get round to purchasing a new printer. I do appreciate your input. Happy Bricky.
