Description Oliver Henshaw 2011-09-24 10:58:10 UTC
Description of problem:

I booted the F15 Desktop Livecd and plugged in a usb canon iP4000 driver. I received a notification that the system was searching for drivers and then that the ip4000 driver was "Missing". I then tried "Add"ing the printer using the "Printing" application which again failed to find the driver but let me manually select a driver from the database and steered me straight to the gutenprint iP4000 driver.

I then followed the testing procedure from the Fedora 14 printing test day - remove foomatic, foomatic-db-ppds, hpijs, gutenprint-cups (of which only gutenprint-cups was installed) and then tried again with the no better results, 

Finally, I checked the printer device id:

# python /usr/share/system-config-printer/check-device-ids.py

If you have not already done so, you may get more results
by temporarily disabling your firewall (or by allowing
incoming UDP packets on port 161).

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2011-09-26 10:02:58 UTC
Thanks for the report.  The gutenprint-cups package has a driver (gutenprint.5.2://bjc-iP4000/simple) so this ID needs to be added to it.
