so i am guessing here that
after you installed BT5 to a usb thumb drive
and you are booting to the thumb drive that BT is not able to use the printer
( cannon is very well known for NOT supporting linux)
printing is one of the things at the very bottom of the list of things to do with BT

getting into a network unseen and without leaving any trace is #1, printing is below #10000 on the list .


or

is this a VM install
or
a install to the drive


but Backtrack was designed BY security experts for use BY SECURITY and network EXPERTS
Experts that have the LEGAL permission to test the network security of the client


have you gone through the BT tutorials ?
they are for the old bt4 and YOU will need to port them for use in bt 5
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/tutorials/
and go through the wiki
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
also it is recommended that you take the "offensive security " classes

Please check out this link: http://newbiebehappy.blogspot.com/20...driver-on.html

Ubuntu and Backtrack should be compatiable.
Or, if does not work... Use ubuntu and follow that link

I already install backtrack in hard disk, why i use bt 5?? because i lazy to download ubuntu
and suttiwit, I install the canon printer driver already...(but I not install scanner yet)
I think the driver is install finished only not register yet....I just want to register it....
