Re: Canon USB printer [SOLVED]

You can give the TurboPrint drivers a shot. After all, it's free for

else works properly.


I did. The draft + 300x300 resolution from the Canon BJC-7000 (Foomatic + bjc800) driver gives about the same quality printout than the Turboprint in the 600x600 definition. Also, the TurboPrint is free only in the lowest definition settings, which is 300x300. Anything higher than that will print with a 1.5in high x 3in long TurboPrint logo that appears to come at a random position in the page, overlapping anything you may be printing. To get rid of that logo I must purchase a license key, which is about US$30.00 for personal use. That's why I love open source so much...

Anyway, the Canon BJC-7000 (Foomatic + bjc800) is working fine, so I'll just keep it. It may be possible to edit the configuration in the /etc/cups/ppd/<my_printer>.ppd file to get the margins perfect, but I don't think I'll mess with that for now.
