I am not familiar with the Canon 4000 but is it a Postscript printer? If
not, then some time is taken writing the postscript file and then for
Ghostscript to convert it to raster. How big is the file you are printing
and how fast is the system? Is the file plain text or is it a document you
are printing with an application? There could be a lot of variables.
