Given what you've done already, I don't expect Ted to work either.
You've got a very deep problem, which baffles me. Usually I have trouble with postscript files, ie those produced by Open Office, Abiword, and so on. However, Firefox prints a raster image, and so I think does the Cups test page. These work much more often- they use different software than postscript files do.

Wooohooooo!!!! Yes!!!! Finally got the printer going without TurboPrint No more printing in Windows!!! Need a bigger grin here
Even though I haven't been posting I've been working on trying to get this printer going for the longest time browsing around and testing, and eventually I got it down to the printer saying it would print and nothing happened. Then I tried Wow's puplet (Exton) which is based on 4.11 and for some reason it printed! Yes! I did want it to work in Pup 3 but at least it's now going in something other than Windows and preferentially in a Puppy derivative.
I'm afraid I never figured completely what the problem was but this is basically what I did for those who are following up this trail:
1.Unrpm Cannon's official packages to / in this order:
They can be found here.
2.Fix the missing symlinks by copying and pasting the following:
3.Then install the printer normally through Cups just taking care to select "USB printer #1 with status readback for canon ij (Canon MP610 series)" when asked what device and you should have one working printer. Yes!!!
