    I just bought a powerbook and I love it. Now, I have a windows XP machine to which is connected a Canon S820 printer.

    I want to be able to print from my powerbook.

    Now, I can see the printer from the powerbook, but I couldnt find a preinstalled driver for the S820, so I went to the Canon website and downloaded the OS X driver for the S820.

    Here's my problem, after the driver has intalled and the machine has rebooted I cannot find the driver anywhere, it doesnt show up on my list of installed printer drivers and I cant select it manually cos I dont know where to look.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Having researched further, I have learned about CUPS printer drivers which is what is used to print from windows machines. Does anyone know if there is a CUPS driver for the Canon S820

    When installing it, you can choose to use a CUPS driver for some printers. Are you using Rendezvous or Windows Printing to find your Pinter?

    I am using Windows Printing to find it.

    I think the problem is that there isnt a CUPS printer driver for that model (S820) only the S800.
