I'm having another go at getting Linux to work after getting a book. Seems OK but when i try to get a printer to work the installation wizzard gives me a list of interfaces to choose. It has 16 USB (USB1, USB2,.....) but I only have 8 physical interfaces. I choose teh first one. The nearest driver in the list is for a Canon S500 printer whilst my printer ia S520. Wizzard completes but I cannot print anything. Have I chosen right USB interface or is the driver not clsoe enought? Any ideas?
...especially with Linux. Linux is infamous, in its many guises, for not recognising the printer. If you have a Canon S520 then you NEED a Canon S520 driver! There are subtle differences between very similar drivers, which Linux picks up on. Try Canon's site. They may be able to a.supply a download of a Linux driver or b.advise you on how to get your setup working. If no help is forthcoming, why not try a different version of Linux? There are lots of them available and I've never heard of the one you are using.
Why not try UbuntuLinux? I'll even supply it in two different forms if you're interested. You may e-mail me on [email protected], leaving your details and I'll send you a copy through the mail.
