Hi it has been awhile for me but this Puppy is looking good. It is doing everything I need except printing. I need some help to set it up. I am using 7.5 (XenialPup). But when I open the setup to add the printer it opens a PDF file that can be edited but nothing more. my printer is a canon mg2920 connected with a USB. It should work I do have the scanner working. plus the printer works ok on Linux Mint Rosa.. I really want to make Puppy my goto OS.

I am assuming Xenialpup 7.5 which is the 32bit version of Xenialpup 7.5.
The drivers you will find posted are 32bit.

I thought I had all the info included. But I didn't. I have the 64 bit not 32.
