I just hooked up my printer to my linux computer, and everything i print looks really faded, almost as if the printer heads were really dirty (I know that they are not, because the printer used to be hooked up to windows a day ago and printing was fine). I have a Cannon BJC-2010 with a BJ cartridge BC-20 that prints in black ink only and I'm running Fedora Core 4. I tried looking at the printer configurations, but i don't really know what to change, maybe i need a special driver. Does anyone have any suggestions, so that i can get decent printing quality? Thanks.
So i guess i did go to the printer configuration, and i tried the non default driver for my printer, and it seems to work alot better. However, sometimes, when i try printing, a line or two may be faded or is even entirly missing? I looked for a linux driver for my printer, but i was not able to find one. Do you all know where i could find a linux driver, or do you have any suggestions so that i can get printing quality similar to that which i experienced under windows?
HP and Epson seem to be better supported. Linuxprinting.org is a great place to look to see how well your printer is supported. I looked up the Canon BJC-2010 and it says it works mostly. It says the BJC-2010 uses the same hardware and printer driver as the BJC-2000. There is a tutorial how to support your printer. It doesn't say what mostly works means.
The software I use: ESP Print Pro supports the BJC-2000 100%
