http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm using a canon ip4300 on ubuntu 11.1. I finally got Scribus to recognize my printer, but when I print the document it shows up in the spooler for a few seconds the disappears. But in other programs the color is way off (very dark) and the resolution only goes up to 600x600. I downloaded the gutenprint-5.2.7.tar.bz2 but can't make heads or tails of how to install it from the ReadMe file. Any suggestions in "non-geek" language? Update: I downloaded the Gutenprint 5.2.7 tar package to my download file and extracted it. I followed the instructions on http://gimp-print.sourceforge. (Hardware)
