Hi;

I have a Canon MP560 printer. Is there a puppy that will work with it?
I found a driver but getting it to install is quite involved.

I have a multi-boot setup with Win XP, Mint 17 Cinnamon, LXPupPrecise 14.02 and Lupu 528 and only XP can see the printer.

I should add that I don't want to play with my OS, I want it to work for me.
I'm using it to shield my XP from the hackers. The XP is necessary for my TrueBasic programming.

Yes I'm that old.

The PC is a Gateway with Intel dual CPU and two 250Gb HDD.

As a point of general interest, PCLinuxOS 2014.05 recognized my printer.

But I'd still like to find a Puppy that would do it.

You are currently posting from inside a whole section about printing in Puppy. It contains threads devoted to Canon printers. What have you read so far?

John;

I've read most of the thread but it's largely about how to get a printer working on Puppy whereas what I asked is for a puppy that will work on my printer OOTB.

The point is moot however because LX Pup Precise started finding the driver in Gutenburg. It wasn't there earlier so I don't know what happened.

I've decided to use PCLinuxOS for now since it installs everything graphically and has a boot configuration routine as well.

Roger.
