I have a Canon i550 and I can get this to work with GimpPrint via a Canon S800 driver but only to 600x600. So the iSeries are not fully supported but only partially.

I agree with Martin that Epson are much better supported and with Ian's Hamiltons efforts Epson Multifunction devices are getting support abeit only on the Iyonix at the moment. If I were purchasing a new printer now I would be looking at an Epson.

Also there is a Linux driver that Canon have on their website for the i550, which I have copies of, if someone could utilise this as the core of a driver

  • South West 2009 show report
    Martin Hansen describes his time as both a punter and an exhibitor at this year's annual RISC OS event held in the south west of the UK. While there were no major announcements ahead of the show, the otherwise friendly and mildly busy atmosphere was coloured by Friday's tragic loss of Paul Vigay.
