    Can only print the test page and nothing else

    Hi,
    I recently upgraded to ubuntu jaunty from intrepid. I installed the canon pixam ip1700 printer using ip2200 driver. When i got to localhost:631 and setup the printer, i am able to print the test page. But if i print from a browser or from a document, it doesn't print, neither does it give any errors. not sure what to do.

    any help as always would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Vishwa

    It's most likely not set as the default printer.

    I'm sure you can set it as such in cups, or try system, administration, printing.

    Re: Can only print the test page and nothing else

    hi,
    i also found out just a few mins ago that if i type some stuff in gedit..save it and then using lpr filename, i can print. but if i issu the print from gedit itself, nothing happens.

    I also went to the system--> admininstration > printing and set the printer to default and the result is the same..

    Any idea why?

    thanks,
    vishwa
