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.
FYI:
The URI for the printer can be obtained from Cups as in
http://192.168.1.5:631, 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
