I lost the cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm & cnijfilter-mp500-2.60-1.i386.rpm files when I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.1 and these files are no longer available on the Canon FTP site ftp://download.canon.jp/pub/driver/bj/linux/
Does anyone know where I can get them from, or has copies they would be prepared to send me.

Doh!! I hadn’t lost the rpm’s (I thought that was odd!) I’d never used them! Yast under Suse 11.0 recognizes the printer “out of the box” - Yast under Suse 11.1 does not. As a last ditch attempt, I tried to configure the printer through the CUPs web interface (localhost:631) and now I have a working printer!
