I've just spent the past couple hours trying different tutorials to get my Canon IP1500 to work in Jaunty. At this point, I think I've read and tried them all, and I can't get the thing to work.

I have it connected via USB, and I can set up the new printer without trouble, but when I print it just says that the document was printed successfully without ever actually printing or doing anything.

I checked /var/log/cups/error_log, and there's nothing interesting there. Does anybody have any ideas how I can proceed with this, or what my next step should be?
