Suggestion, when preparing to buy a new printer that you want to use with 
Linux, verify it is known to at least work a little bit by visiting the Linux 
Printer reference site.

Printer reference site:

Understanding the data:

Your printer looked up:

I don't know if the 5.0.1 version of gutenprint that you get in F7 (after an 
update) has the C79 driver, or if you will have to play with one of the 5.0.2 
driver packages from the site:

It looks like one way or another (either with what comes with F7 or a slightly 
newer gutenprint version), someone has made it work.

Hope this helps.
