I'm on fedora v13 beta. I boot up the pc with fedora beta and then I connected my canon printer ( it's a five in one device) and turned on.
A dialog box appeared asking me if I want to setup hpijs.
I clicked okay, and an error popped up.
Failed to install package
Unknown error. Please refer to the detailed

Problem detecting printer in fedora 13!
The problem here is not on the actual printer but the software it uses to do the printing.
Maybe you did not check if the printer’s software is compatible with your operating system.
Check the documentation that comes with your printer.
I’m sure there is information there about the System Requirements of the printer’s program.
You can not use it without the program.
If on the other hand, the printer’s software is not compatible with the version of Windows you are using, try if you can still return the software and replace it with a version that is compatible with your operating system.
Or maybe just replace your current Windows with the version that is compatible with the printer’s program.
