Unhappy Canon i850 Bubble Jet Printer

Can anybody help me to attain higher output resolution from my Canon 850i printer?

Currently maxed out at 600x600 dpi out of claimed 4800x1200 dpi on e.g. my SuSE linux 8.2 rig.

can you describe in a bit more detail what you did w/ those rpm's? W/out the english docs i'm a little hesitent to install it.

BTW, in another forum i found a reference to using the bj7004 driver at 600x600, which seems to be working rather well for me also.

Its described in detail here:

However, this worked successfully on mandrake 9.1 for me:

I downloaded bjfilterpixus850i-2.2-0.i386.rpm & bjfiltercups-2.2-0.i386.rpm from . Then from commandline:
bash-2.05b$ su
bash-2.05b$ ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
bash-2.05b$ rpm -ivh --nodeps bjfilterpixus850i-2.2-0.i386.rpm bjfiltercups-2.2-0.i386.rpm

Then just selected the PIXSUS 850i ver.2.2 driver in the mandrake printer wizard.
