    Usb Canon printer


    Hi,

    Is it possible to configure a USB Canon (BJC 3000) printer to run on Freebsd 5.3? Most of the material I've read on the Net is about configuring the printer connected to a parallel port.

    I've installed CUPS and haven't had much luck with the printing.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    You might want to configure CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) via its web based configurer. In the web browser type: and then configure away.

    I did that twice but it didn't work. Canon wasn't one of the available drivers for me to choose. I chose Raw and Generic but those didn't work.

    I'll see if I can find Canon drivers as advised by sdousley.
