I have 2 different printers. A canon IP2600 and a lexmark 1185 all in one. I can't seem to get either to work. I am focusing on the canon mainly. The printer is apparently not the easiest to get going on linux but its at least possible. I found this on an ubuntu forum and tried to follow it http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=811811
Not really exactly sure how to use that method for vector linux, but I tried a few different things and nothing works so far. I also found the driver in source code format but it had no configure file that I could see so the whole
Process didn't work.
I'm new to linux so i'm fumbling around, but I pick up on things quickly.
