Hello. I read the previous post "Newbie USB Printer Problem" and its 
follow-ups, well, I am more "newbie" than him:).

Now I wish to connect my Canon S400SP printer with my Thinkpad 600X 
notebook (running 5.1-RELEASE), since I never printed anything with 
FreeBSD before,
1. Do I need a specific filter for the printer to print graphic?
2. Looking into the ports, it seems most Canon printer filters are for 
Bubble Jet printers. I think my printer is not Bubble Jet because the 
printer's manual didn't say so. So is there a filter for my printer at all?

Thank you.
