However when I try to print something from AbiWord nothing happens.

Is the printer listed in Abiword? If you look in the Jobs section of CUPS, did a print job ever make it out of Abiword?

As a general rule, if you can print a test page, then you should be able to print from applications.

I am running a simulated printer using your driver in Puppy 4.2.1 with CUPS 1.3.10 and I'm seeing none of your problems.

OK, it was stupid me that hadn't highlighted the "canon" before trying to print. All is well and you don't know how much I appreciate your help rcrsn51 .
I have had pretty good success with these forums except that sometimes I get dropped before my problem gets solved. You, however stayed with me and I'm sure I couldn't have succeeded without your help as the Puppy install requires a knowledge of command line function which I do not yet know.
I also hope this thread will be useful to others trying to install a non-CUPS printer in Puppy..

hi rcrsn51,

i am having trouble installing my Canon LBP3050 onto my puppy 4.2.1. i tried out the steps listed in

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Canon_LBP2900

but got stuck at "installation", with the command "rpmextract.sh *". it gave me the error "rpmextract.sh: command not found". i am not literate with linux, may i know what should i do next? thanks.

add on:
n when i tried with the another Canon LBP2900, i received the error message "Filter "pstocapt" for printer "2900" not available: No such file or directory". i can't find any reference on how to solve this error message in puppy linux, however some commands are available in ubuntu. i am running out of ideas, please help, anyone?
