The printer installation works fine using the Gutenprint 5.2.7 MG5100 series driver.
But when I try to print the test page, the printer dialog says "rendering complete" but the page is never printed.
I get this under Ubuntu 11.10 with an Canon Pixma MG5150.
In the forums I found a thread, with another guy having exactly the same error under Gentoo.
It would be nice if someone could look into it.
