Does anybody know which print driver to use with Linux? I tried the BJ-8200 based on a post in another forum and it works... sort of.

Seems like Canon doesn't support Linux, which is too bad.

Thanks.

Thanks for the tip (BJ-8200 driver may work).

I just bought a used laptop for my wife, and I've been testing it with Linux distros.

The only Linux drivers I've seen for the Canon Pixma printers are commercial:

Unfortunately, it looks like printer drivers for Linux tend to lag product introduction, since most manufacturers don't write them for this OS.
