Canon i860 printer
Anyone know where I can get a print driver for this model...

When I print, it prints to only about a quarter of the page making things very small.

I'm using SUSE 9.3 and it didn't have the specific model listed. I thought this might be part of the problem??

Canon has really crappy support for Linux, and actually charges for it's full featured drivers, for a printer you purchased no less. Here is a website that sells the driver, which also has a free (but limited) version that should get you up and running. Check to see if your model is listed.

thanks for the reply....

i was reading other posts, and while reading one on an Epson printer some useer had mentioned his i860. used turboprint to get it to work. i d/loaded that and the printer is working much better now. still not like on XP, but hey...

There are linux drivers available, you'll find them on the Japanese canon website, I have posted some info before not sure if it was this linux forum though. From memory you'll need three files, one was a cups file, one to satisfy a dependency, and the file specific to your printer( these wre the ones for more i560, libpng2-1.0.12-2mdk.i586.rpm, bjfilterpixus560i-2.4-0.i386.rpm and bjfiltercups-2.4-0.i386.rpm. This might help you find them.
