Does RH auto-detect it? CUPS and RH auto-detected my USB printer and suggested a driver (that works just fine). In Mandrake, it wouldn't detect it until I told it to search /dev/usb/lp0. Might give those a shot and see if RH knows what it is.

seems appears, but

yes indeed its appears on my system, my RH9 detect my printer, known well as canon i320, but its always ask me to enter the device driver which i dont know what the driver is, see after RH detect the printer and the printer list is shown, its continuous with a dialog box asking for the device driver, what should i do? generic printer or to specify the device which its doesnt appear in the list?

Give this a try:

http://www.turboprint.de/english.html
Quote from site: .8-May-2003: TurboPrint 1.81 with new Canon i320, i950 and S200 drivers

Appears to be a printing driver and I supposedly gives support for the Canon i320. There's a free edition and a pro edition; however, I'm not sure if your driver is supported under the free edition--it's worth a shot though!

Good luck!

Does it not detect the USB ports or just the USB printer? Do other USB devices work?

Does the printer support LPT printing? That'll let you know if there's a problem with lpr or lpd.

Perhaps see if the driver works and then attack the USB problem from a different angle. Do you have any other USB devices you can test.

Did it work when you tried it via LPT or does other USB devices work?

Unhappy replying

i dont have any other usb device, its my only one, i've sole my lpt printer, but its seems working using LPT, cause my friend on my neighbor already used redhat9 and using LPT printing, i've seen that, and its work, but it doesnt work on my system, ofcourse using my usb port as i have only this one with my canon i320. sorry im just a fool, and very2 newbie on linux. but see my other device is working, such my modem, network card, graphic card, soundcard too, only my printer seems to be the only trouble i have
