I do not have a currently working printer, so I dug one out of storage. When I connected it, via USB, Debian 7, advised that it has no print driver for the printer (Canon PIXMA iP6000D).

Next was to Debian.org for a package to use with this printer. Searching I found "printer-driver-gutenprint", it is a Gutenprint foundation package and it supports my Canon printer.

I went to download it, but it seems that it's already installed.

Now, how do I tell Linux to use this package, since it obviously did not find the connection via the Gutenprint driver that were installed. Is there a way to 'fool' it or even tell it it's ok to use that driver???

Thanks for whatever you can do for me...
