Canon i560 Printer


I have a canon i560 printer plugged into my PC through USB2. How do I setup this printer for SuSE 9.2? Can I set it up using one of the standards (PCL6 etc...) or can I get special drivers? If I can do it with a printer standard, which one, otherwise, where can I get drivers?

Hopefully this will help you.

I have a canon i860, however I have to use the BJC-800 driver. To install this in debian I would use a command like this.
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p Canon_i560 -E -v usb:/dev/usb/lp0 -m /usr/share/cups/model/BJC800.ppd
This should work for you however the ppd file may be in a different location under Suse. The command
find /usr/share/cups -name BJC800.ppd
should tell you the location of that file.
