Printer not printing Canon s400
I have just migrated to Linux Mandrake from Windows and am completely new to Linux but cannot get my printer to print. I print through a USB port with a Canon s400 bubblejet printer, from what I can tell all the settings are fine, and if I sent a file to the printer it says that the printer is printing, but nothing happens.
I am using a Via technologies P4Vmm2 motherboard with onboard sound and USB etc. and cannot get any sound out of the system either.
Can anybody assist?
