Printing under RedHat 9 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I am having problems getting my Canon BJC-2100 printer to work correctly under RedHat 9. I can install the printer using the gui KDE tool, however when I try and print a test page, it prints out double-width. I've just moved over to Linux and everything else is sorted out; the printer is the last thing to do. Any feedback appreciated. -- David ( priz.co.uk )...

    Default Printing under RedHat 9

    I am having problems getting my Canon BJC-2100 printer to work
    correctly under RedHat 9.

    I can install the printer using the gui KDE tool, however when I try
    and print a test page, it prints out double-width.

    I've just moved over to Linux and everything else is sorted out; the
    printer is the last thing to do.

    Any feedback appreciated.

    Is the printer LPT-connected, USB-connected, or LAN/SAMBA-connected?

    One rather *surprising* thing I found with RH 8 (and later) versions,
    CUPS, and USB ports: it *just plain works* (and works better than
    connecting via LPT). If given a choice between LPT and USB, if using
    LPT, consider switching to USB, as I seriously suspect that CUPS (as
    opposed to LPR) is much more PnP-aware (in fact, I didn't have to tell
    CUPS diddley-squat about my printer, an HP Derskjet 640C).

    S-c-a-r-y.
