I suspect a problem with your install. Not only do I have lots of Canon
printers available when I do that, I also have available as a possible
selection 'Canon BJ Networking' as well as the various Epson, HP, and Lexmark
special printing setup zones.
It's true that most of my Canon selections come via GIMP-Print, either the
drivers which came with OS X or the hpijs/foomatic drivers. Did you install
GIMP-Print? (it's supposed to be a part of the default install, so if you
didn't, you would have had to deliberately NOT install it) Did you _delete_
GIMP-Print? If GIMP-Print isn't there, have you tried going to the GIMP-Print
site and downloading and installing the latest version, optionally getting
the hpijs/foomatic drivers while you're at it?
