New to Linux, cant even get my canon ip6301D to print.

it is shown as my default printer, and even spits out a sheet when I try to print something. The 'Test Page' actually includes some ink and lines but does not look like the real thing.
Any suggestions?

Are you sure that model number's right? I can't find any mention of that printer on the web...

Otherwise, have you tried printing an ordinary document? Does it print what you expect, or nothing at all? It might be that the Linux test page is not the same as a test page from another operating system. Also, what distribution of Linux are you using?

Sorry - typo - ip6310D

I have tried a pdf and a odt file, both of which will print from another computer to the same printer.

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
