[ubuntu-uk] printing/scanning

I would be grateful if I could have some help in trying to identify a
problem which has just recently appeared. When I send a scanned document
to the printer all the lines are no longer solid but are made up from
lots of what appear to be small 'dots' or 'back slashes'. It does not
appear to be a scanner fault as the same document scanned to the screen
is normal. The scanner is an old Canon Lide 20 and I use Ubuntu 9.04.

This peculiar printing does not happen when documents are sent from
OpenOffice, for example.
