tip: the right driver to install a Canon i850 printer with

This was not my original discovery, because I think I saw this on some website, but following that page's advice, I have determined that my Canon i850 printer prints both text and graphics perfectly in Linux (MEPIS) if installed with driver BJC-4000 (foomatic + bjc600, whatever that means). It seems to me that the site (which I never bookmarked, and relied onmy memory of) called for actually called for BJC-4200; if so, 4000 would seem to work at least as well.
