obviously. I think (but I may be wrong) it is this pdf who causes this...
No, it's an Canon printer. I've donwload a ppa named cnijfilter (

Yes, it was what I thought, Eye of Gnome is heavier. As computer where is
installed Lubuntu is old, I think I shoulnd't change the file manager.
Thank you for you comprehension ;)

I will do it ;)

Thank you so much ;)
