Here are the MX870 and MP210 packages. MX870 driver should be fine, but I'm not sure about the MP210. These older Canon drivers were problematic.

Please report back.

Preliminarily, I can verify that the MP210 driver works at least as well as the Gutenprint+MP180 driver supplied natively with CUPS (in Puppy Studio 3.3), which I had made do with.

Further results by and by as testing proceeds. Thanks again for having saved this.

I haven't. I am building these drivers from the original Canon sources.

Hehe...I should have known. Double-thanks. Say, you don't by chance do mechanical work do you? I just bought this 1985 Mercedes 300D Laughing ...spent this morning in a junkyard in a snowstorm to pull the electric cooling fan from a '93 Volvo 940...now I need a turbo and an intercooler...

Initial enthusiasm was premature. The MP210 driver about 60% of the time prints two copies when I only wanted one. Also has a nasty tendency to break up the page with a thin horizontal white line randomly placed.

Sporadic events like that sound more like hardware than software problems.

Do any of the Gutenprint drivers work with this unit?
