configuring pixma ip1000 under debian etch

I own a Canon Pixma iP1000 provided by my employer and use turboprint as the drivers. All works/worked well.

I am dabbling with Debian testing at the moment (Etch) and one of the bugs that I am trying to iron out relates to getting my printer to work.

First, under stable, I simply ran xtpsetup in turboprint and added my printer from the list. Pas de problem, black, colour all good.

Running through the same under Etch has produced a strange problem:

The printed is registered as usb://Canon/iP1000
Labelled tp0

Sending a testpage gives the message: Processing page 1...

But no output from the printer

The printer is also registered under CUPS and shows the testpage queued up. Still no output if I sent a testpage from CUPS as well.

All pretty standard so far, obviously a config. problem...

Opening Abiword and printing a document from there...

It works fine!

This is confusing now....

I haven't tried gimp as yet but adobe acrobat does not print and evince does. I use adobe for its multiple page per sheet facility that evince has but in non functional.

Does anyone have any ideas about this Jekyll and Hyde situation?

Technical info:

uname -r:


ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:11.5[C] -> Link [ALKC] -> GSI 22 (level, low) -> IRQ 193
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:11.5 to 64
usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x04A9 pid 0x1098
usbcore: registered new driver usblp
drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: v0.13: USB Printer Device Class driver
Connection: Local Printer

Googling has shown up a black and white situation, it works or it does not...
