I have an Canon MP620 printer, and use the Canon PIXMA MP610 driver.
The test page show striped letters that are enlarged in hight, the border around the page is missing on the bottom.
Changing other paper size, resolution , or fiddling other options does not change this fact.

Any suggestions, or requests for info are welcome.

Using:
Canon PIXMA MP610 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.4

Fedora 11 packagemanager yum shows:

    I have the same problem with the OS/2 port of this BJNP driver. I use it with the Canon PIXMA MP610 PPD and CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.4

  • I'm happy to inform you that I just acquired an MP610 recently, and will be testing it. I'll report back here as soon as I have results.

    At gutenprint 5.2.7 there is a matching driver for the MP620 but it still does print the striped pattern.
    Looking at the printer specs I found that MP620 printer uses the same cartridges and has the same capabilities as the i4600 printer.
    The Canon i4600 printer driver works for the MP620 printer!

     
  • Thanks for the heads-up on the iP4600 driver. I will check that error is present in the MP620 driver and correct it for testing in CVS. I'll post here later today when the code has been committed.
    Best regards,
