canon pixma mx926 proprietory PCL

After sending a text with embedded PCL5 to the printer,
it said please "wait momentarilly"
I sent this this Canon support
so where can I get details of this Canon printer language
so that I can convert from PCL5.

I have search the web extensively, but cannot find any reference
to this "proprietory" language.

Surely someone somewhere has got the details!

MX920 is not listed, however many of the PIXMA printers are listed as "paperweight"

Searching for "paperweight" - - no go, translates as "paper" & "weight"
I want to convert PCL5 into this Canon proprietory printer control language.


resolved: I used the CUPS options to "lp".
I couldn't find a way to set the font, nor to
set "bold", but the result is acceptable.
