Actually what I see is a (probably untrained in Linux) customer service rep
apologizing to you for the issue you are having, and then pointing you to the
Linux driver. I suspect English is not the service rep's native language
and the service rep is using a script to respond to the inquiry.
Clearly Canon supplies Linux drivers, so they intended the printer to be used
with Linux. This is probably a by-product of supporting Mac OS X.
I would ask to have the issue escalated to the next level technician as the
marketing materials on Canon's web site state it works with:
"Windows 2000/Server 2003 32bit/64bit and
Mac OS 10.3.9 - or later (download); Linux, Citrix, Metaframe "
Should they persist in claiming no support, ask them how you will be receiving
a refund for your printer as it does not work as advertised.
