General :: Ubuntu Drivers For Canon MX330 Multi Function Printer Scanner?
Apr 27, 2010
I have downloaded successfully the drivers for the printer component of the MX330. The scanner drivers are downloaded,but I am unable to locate the working part of the .sh file so that I can open it. I have the .sh file in text, but do not know how to utilize it
Is there a way to print from a Canon MX 330 All-in-One printer in Ubuntu 9.04? I'm trying to print through a Linksys WRT54G router. The printer is physically connected to a Desktop PC running Windows Vista (64-bit).I've tried installing the printer though CUPS to no avail. I tried the iP4600, iP3600 and iP2600 drivers and none of them have worked for me. I've even tried the Gutenprint PIXMA IP4600 drivers.
I am trying to get Canon MP250 printer and scanner working in OpenSUSE 11.3 and so far I've had limited success. Both components work up to a point, but aren't fully operational.First of all, I installed the drivers from Canon website for both parts of the multifunctional device. Here's the report on the versions (it's localised, but it shouldn't be hard to understand ).
The printer works for the most part. But it fails to set images to greyscale when I request the driver to. There are some guides about that for Ubuntu, but none for openSUSE that I could find. Also, what does the setting "Amount of Extension" in the printer options do?It would also be nice if I could set the printing quality as well. Right now it seems to print everything with the default quality setting, but personally I like using lower print quality since that saves ink and makes it a little faster.
The scanner, however, is hardly usable at all. If I try to use Canon's ScanGear MP to scan, I can hear that it operates the scanner, but the program itself freezes and after a while gives me the "Cannot communicate with scanner" error. On certain settings I can also hear that the scanner itself doesn't complete the scan (the indicator on it also reports an operation in progress, but it never gets completed).If I try to use Acquire images, the native KDE scanner application, I can get it to scan, but only on very specific settings: it must scan it in colour and the resolution must be equal to or over 300 dpi. If I try anything else, the resulting image file is completely blank or I get an "Error during device I/O". And, of course, it can't save PDF files.
I bought a multifunction stylus sx218 Espon model and I can not run the scanner function. I did some research and found a few solutions and very functional. I hope someone solves the problem. My version of openSUSE 11.2.
I want to get my Canon MP210 printer / scanner working under Fedora 8 Linux. When I plug the USB cable in, I get a little popup with a setup wizard, but my printer isn't even in that list. I've tried the system-config-printer wizard as well as going in through the control panels and trying everything reasonable.
Does anyone have an idea of where i can find a driver for this printer? The system does not have one and if I try a driver for say the PIXMA MP220 which is CUPS + Gutenprint v5.2.4 [en] (actually, all the PIXMA drivers are that one) and I print the printer seems like it receives some command but nothing else happens. The printer says 'Printing from PC' and then goes back to the main screen.
Im attempting to install a Canon MX330 as my default printer. I have made reference to several posts that deal with Canon printers and have followed them without success.
I first searched [URL] for the appropriate drivers and came up with -cnijfilter-common-3.10-1.i386.rpm and cnijfilter-mx330series-3.10-1.i386.rpm.I then issued rpm -ivh for both, but got the error message libpopt.so.0 is needed by cnijfilter.I then issued ls -l /usr/lib/libpng* and saw that libpng.so.3 wasn't found. I next issued zypper in libpng3 and then -- ln -l usr/lib64/cups /usr/lib/cups and ln -l usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanoni /usr/lib64/cups/filter Then I issued /etc/init.d/cups restart. Finally, I entered ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter. ls -l /usr/lib/libpng* shows ---
and smoltGui shows that the driver for the printer is still unknown.If I try to use Cups to install the printer, I can't get past the screen that asks for the driver, since my driver is not listed and I don't know how to enter both drivers as new PDDs.
I have recently purchased a canon pixma mx330 all in one printer. I tried using yast on 64 bit opensuse 11.1, kernel version 188.8.131.52-9 to locate the necessary driver to no avail. Is this a futile attempt or is there a driver that yast can't find.
Trying to set up my Canon MX700 all-in-one as a printer on my network. N predefined drivers available on 9.10 rel. Tried Pixma mp830 but printer just prints a blank page. Canon of course shows no drivers for Linux.
My purpose is to be able to use Canon printers with my debian jessie system (installed via netinst iso).
I have read this wiki page but unfortunately it is a little old. I still have followed/adapted the instructions there but it fails on my system on step 6. I will explain below.
Latest Canon drivers in the official website is v3.10. US version of it can be obtained from here.
When I try to install .deb package in the driver file archive I get following output:
Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-ufr2-us_3.00-1_amd64.deb [sudo] password for ert: Selecting previously unselected package cndrvcups-ufr2-us. (Reading database ... 155527 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack cndrvcups-ufr2-us_3.00-1_amd64.deb ... Unpacking cndrvcups-ufr2-us (3.00-1) ...
And the next thing I tried:
Code: Select allsudo apt-get install cndrvcups-common [sudo] password for ert: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package cndrvcups-common is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. However the following packages replace it:
E: Package 'cndrvcups-common' has no installation candidate
I recently installed openSUSE 11.2 on a computer with a Canon i860 printer attached to it. Previously this computer had Ubuntu 9.10 installed on it. When Ubuntu was installed on it, the computer found and printed on the Canon i860 printer just fine. When I installed openSUSE, the list of Canon drivers did *not* include the Canon i860. Just for giggles I selected Canon BJC 4000.
It prints, but it "misbehaves" - For example, if I want to print a document that says only "Hello world", it will print it, but it prints it about 20 times on one sheet. I figure this insanity is caused by the improper driver I selected. I'm not expert enough to know how to get this printer working. And - why would it work okay in Ubuntu 9.10, but not openSUSE 11.2? Did I do something wrong while installing openSUSE?
Bought a Canon all-in-one (printer, copier, scanner) today, which prints beautifully on XP & connects to our WiFi without problem. Only downside, is it can't find a driver for Linux. Anyone out there using this printer under Linux, or any pointers to the right driver?
I dist-upgraded my Debian unstable and 'cups' removed the official drivers ('cndrvcups-common_2.00-2_i386' and 'cndrvcups ufr2-uk_2.00-2_i386'). Well, now my network Canon i-SENSYS MF4120 multifunctional printer/scanner doesn't work and the drivers can't be installed back
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
I have done a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.04 on my partners desktop PC and am attempting to get her printer working, so far no luck. Ubuntu does not list a specific driver for this printer in 8.04 Printer is a Canon laserjet model L1112E according to the label on the printer itself but the printed instruction leaflet calls it a LBP 3000.Canon website offers a linux driver for lbp3000.
I recently bought a used Canon IP1600 Inkjet Printer. It did not come with the cd-rom to install and set up this printer. I downloaded the driver. And i recieved a message saying my system is not modified.
I've been running Xubuntu 9.04 for the past couple of months but have difficulty installing my Canon MX-860 wireless printer. Everything else works perfectly and connects wirelessly to internet. Since I run a couple of other Win based computers, printing from the Toshiba 1100 laptop hasn't been a problem. It would be an advantage. I tried to install the latest Xubuntu distro on the Toshiba and it installed but could not connect to the wireless Atheros card. Where should I start? get Distro 10.04 working first or try and install the printer with the existing distro?
I have a Canon Lide 100 flatbed scanner, however xsane 0.997 can't detect it.Just wanna ask you you guys add a scanner ?When I do a command line, this is what I get.Quote:[root@localhost]# sane-find-scannerfound USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1904 [CanoScan], chip=GL843) at libusb:001:003However when I run the "Scanner Tool" from Application --> Graphics --> Scanner Tool
I've done a ton of searching and all I've found seems geared to having your printer/scanner connected via USB cable in order to get the scanner working. I have the printer working wirelessly but thus far no go on the scanner. I've downloaded and installed the scangearmp packages.
I've tried installing the sane package via git according to this blog but when I try to run configure I see this: mustek_usb2 backend requires pthread library - disabling and usb isn't listed among the installed backends. I don't even know whether I need usb because this is wireless, but after compiling I run scanimage -L and nothing comes up. I'm still a Linux newb, and have learned a ton in the past couple of days, but this one is stumping me.
