Network Printing...
« on: June 26, 2004, 07:50:21 am »

I have this huge home network (2 computers).  On the first computer, I have WindozeXP.  On the second computer, I dual boot Windoze2000 & Linux (Mandrake 9.1).  I have a Canon S520 printer on the first computer.  

I hit the Net & found some info on setting up a Canon S520 to print (though the info was sort of vague), but it seems that it was for direct connection, not networked.  

I connected to the printer using CUPS & seem to be able to communicate a bit with it (i.e., when I send a print job, the printer will turn itself on), but it will not actually print the document, regardless of form (plain text or Open Office doc are the two I tried).  

Any suggestions?  


I don't have any solution, but I certainly admire the problem.

There's no joke we can tell about the fedgov that they can't turn into an even more absurd truth about themselves.
