How to make sure what I see is what prints?

Question... When printing in photoshop or lightroom, how do I setup the color management or profiles to most accurately print to my display? Do I use the printer profile or something else? Using a Canon 9000 II printer.

I have my printer set on the correct paper (platinum pro) and my printer is set to the ICC profile to my calibrated monitor in it's settings. Lightroom's color management profile is set to "managed by printer". Is this what I should be using?

I did a print yesterday and noticed it was a bit more warm. I *may* have accidentally changed a setting prior, but just to be sure for next time, how do I correctly set my printers to correctly print what I see on my calibrated IPS display? I believe yesterday I may have switched the profile on accidentally in CS5 prior to printing, because in the past they have been basically dead on color wise. Just for future reference though, I would like to make sure I have it all setup correctly!

Use the proper profile for the printer / paper / ink used.
In PS, you can softproof, in LR there's a plugin that kinda works (but doesn't allow "live" adjustments)

Have a look in the links from my sig, and here: http://myemail.constan​tcontact.com …416365862&aid=L​meTuZGBcK8 (external link)

There are a couple contradictions here. Are they mistakes? It would certainly be wrong to set a monitor profile in a printer driver.

Try having LR do the management: Set your paper profile and rendering intent there. The printer probably uses the OS's c.m. engine for the conversion, LR uses Adobe's ACE.
