>>Did you load the correct modules? What's the output of lsmod?

my printer is Canon BJC2000.
the output of lsmod is:
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
via82cxxx_audio        18328   0  (autoclean)
uart401                 6084   0  (autoclean) [via82cxxx_audio]
sound                  55596   0  (autoclean) [via82cxxx_audio uart401]
parport_pc             11876   1  (autoclean)
lp                      6564   0  (autoclean)
parport                15008   1  (autoclean) [parport_pc lp]

nls_cp936             119932   2  (autoclean)

>>BillM says `echo -en', not `echo -eu'. Is this your problem?
It's my typing error in the post. It does not work either way.

Thanks!
