6. When asked for a printer driver, select Generic as the manufacturer and MS Publisher Imagesetter as the driver. In truth, any generic PostScript driver will do, but this works as well as any.

Bummer I tried that one but no go...sends jobs but no print and no errors..probably related to option settings so I will play again...using IP4600...in theory the postscript gets converted at the cups side just like an lp job.

Well glad you got it running......easy once you find the way Very Happy ...it's finding that way which is the challenge.
I solved a 2 day WPA2 problem which was fixed by removing one line in a config file.......ahhhhhhhhhhhhh...ooo but I learnt loads Smile

@Patriot

It seems that the driver for the ip3300 series has been removed; would you mind reloading it? Sorry to have to bother you.

Ok, done ..... all links are updated and working as of today ...

I had net disruption for a week. Had to re-cable some stuffs and rebuild-n-refine a few net drivers ... Should be okay now .....

None of the Canon sites list a Linux driver for the Pixma ip3000. Have you tried the ip3300 driver?

Puppy 4.3.1 already has a driver for this printer as part of the Gutenprint package. What installation procedures have you tried?

I didn't realise it was on there.
Tried to install it though, and i get an error saying

configure: error: in 'gutenprint-5.2.5':
configure: error: no acceptable c compiler found in $PATH


Any ideas?

Puppy already has Gutenprint installed. Just run the Puppy Printer Wizard from the Setup menu.

Ah, i didn't know that!
I went through that Wizard, then it says "your printer is installed" but the test page does nothing.... Tried it in another application though and it printed fine. Thank you so much!

Just need to work out how to use it for scanning now....

Read here and get the mp150_sane-0.14.1.pet. It claims to support your MP170 scanner.

Thanks again.
Actually i already tried that though, didn't work. Don't have the computer here to check the error message, but it was something about libusb speed or it being slow, and I/O Error input error.
