Yes. That has been done and this (Canon) printer is being used by other
linux boxes here. If I go ahead and add the printer and go to print, I
get a conversion to PDF, choose print again, and get an error message that
the URI is incorrect or no longer exists.
The URI for the printer can be obtained from Cups as in, choose 'Printers' and then select the printer itself.
But for the life of me I can't see where to enter the printer URI in the
Lion->System Preferences->Printers window. Furthermore, I can't see
how to edit an installed printer.
Thanks again
