The print settings in Acrobat Reader 7.08 can affect how easily a 
given PDF file from Scribus will print.  I would look to see if the 
settings in 10.2 match those on your 10.1 machine.

In this case, I suspect it is a weakness or issue with the Canon

I had a look at the specs of this printer and it is a 'win printer' 
which writes GDI (Windows native) and the linux driver somehow 
converts this to postscript. 

It could be a situation where there are PDF or PS operators which 
cannot be translated and that is where the printer driver chokes. 

Have you tried printing directly via the SB cable ? This might help.

Happy New Year,
