Total newbie to installing printer drivers-questions


hi

Up until now I never installed printer drivers on linux so I have a few questions

This questions are in regards to HP DJ 5150 and canon i350

I know that there is generic driver for HP printers called HPIJS but:

-is there a better driver that i should use instead?
-does Redhat 9 has it
-could redhat 9 have an earlier version of HPIJS which doesn't support HP DJ 5150?If that's the case can I just install newer HPIJS version,or are there files to be deleted prior to installing newer version?

Where can I get Canon i350 drivers?

This more of general question-how exactly do I go about installing these drivers?Just run the file(s) or what?

thank you

it appears as if turboprint is currently the only available driver for the canon. you will have to buy that driver. hope that helps.
good luck.
