printing problem


I have on my MDK 10 machine 2 printers installed

Now neither of those printer would print a test page from MCC
My Laserprinter is continously printing pages with some characters on who say nothing
My Canon won't print anything

I have now removed both printers from my machine and my laserprinter keeps printing nonsense.

Now I would like to kill all commands towards my printers and instaal them over properly

How should I do this

Canon USA does not provide Linux support.

In order to get a Canon printer working (most of them, I think), your only option is to download a $30 product called Turboprint.

I don't remember whether Mandrake uses CUPS as
most linux distributions. If so, there is good docs in
