Tried to print via the CUPS web page? Enter this;

This should open the CUPS page on your PC, find your printer, find out what the printer reports back...

Obviously, you did hook the thing up right did'nt ya?

Do feedback to see where we land, ok?

Here's the Open Printing Database page on the ip2700.

There is no separate listing for the ip 2772. That doesn't mean anything, since it's a volunteer site.

Thanks for the insight guys, you guys are great! this got me pointed to the right direction. Apparently, there seems to be a problem with the driver, so I used the driver I got from canon-asia as posted by hilyard last 11-03-10 about same problem but with canon pixma ip2700 and ubuntu 10.10.
