Well I have a canon i250 printer and I can't get it to work with Linux. Any ideas from where I can get the drivers or something?

When you plug in the printer what happens? When you try to print a document or something no printers are found?

How are you setting up the printer? You should be able to use a generic type driver.

Canon is usually pretty good about using generic printer languages (UNLIKE LEXMARK!!! DIE LEXMARK DIE!!)

Lol. What is wrong with lexmark? And what do you mean by 'generic printer languages'? Do you mean drivers?

Have you tried their website? They might have a driver pack for Linux there.
