i'm trying to get my canon ip4700 printer setup with cups. i'm half way there, get to add the printer in the web interface but no driver listed. i've installed the ports suggested in the handbook section on cups for drivers. it lists drivers for most of the ip series except mine which is typical. as along shot i downloaded the source from canon for linux and tried to use the ppd file that came with but needless to say it didn't work. 

does anyone use this printer on FreeBSD, if you do i'd love to know how you got it set up. 

best wishes,
