Ubuntu :: Canon Mp470 Printer - 10.10 - Able To Print Black And White But Unable To Print Photos
Dec 26, 2010
My wife has a canon MP470 printer and running ubuntu 10.10. I am able to print black and white, but unable to print photos. I got it to work using another driver, but not the 'correct' one for this printer. I have searched a bit and don't see anything about ubuntu 10.10, just older versions. Or should I just network her to my printer....?
I have the printer Canon i-SENSYS LBP6020. I followed the instructions from the site URL....There are no errors, but when I try to print, nothing comes out of the printer.My system is: Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)Here is some debugging information:

I would like to know if it is possible to configure my laptop so that it can print wirelessly on my MP800r canon printer, and if so then how to configure them to make this operation possible. I'm using Ubuntu.
F13 showing that Canon s100 printer is founded, installed drivers and everything seems to be OK. But when i try to print text, testpage of what ever, nothing happened. Installed system-config-printer 1.2.4-1.f13, same udev and libs. Cups 1:188.8.131.52.f13, libraries, php modules Here is the Error msg:
I have Canon MF4150 printer. I have downloaded Linux Printer Driver (UFR II) Ver.2.10E from canon asia site. Adding the printer and printing work fine, except that after one printing, the printer stops working. There is no error message./var/log/cups/access_log shows
When I print to my HP LaserJet 1020 - which has worked fine since OpenSuSe 10.x to OpenSuse 11.3, any images print inverted.
For example, what is white in the image is printed black, and what is black in the image is printed white. When printing a document from LibreOffice, text on the same page as the image prints correctly.
I've checked that this is happening when printing images from LibreOffice, Okular, and Gimp, and tried it with PNG, TIF, and GIF image formats.
However, when I open HPLIP and send a test print through, it prints correctly - text and images all normal.
Running Ubuntu 10.10, when trying to print to canon 1800 print file is created, spooled to printer but does not print. Job appears in print Q and ends as finished job, next job number increases correctly. Printer light flashes to indicate data in,, but nothing out on paper !! (printer works fine on "the Other" OS!
Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.
I recently installed 10.04 and unable to print to local or network printer?
When I go to System Admin/Printing to add my printers, screen says I am not connected to localhost and I am unable to use Add printer. When I used version 9.10, I added a network + a local printer by this method but I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time around.
I am unable to print on my Brother mcf 440cn printer. Every thing was working ok, today I finished some work in Open Office and could not print the saved file. I get an error unable to print msg. my printer is no longer recognized on the system. I reinstalled the driver no luck. I tested the printer with Windooze and every thing works fine
I am running Ubuntu 10.04. I am trying to print on a Lexmark 9300 series printer connected to a Windows XP machine. I am able to print on an HP Laserjet 5P printer connected to a Windows 7 machine just fine.
I have a Windows print server (Win XP SP2) and a 1 opensuse client. I have setup cups as per the following document:
Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
I am not using Samba. The setup went fine, but I am not able to print to it. There are other clients (all Windows) that are printing fine to this print server. The following is what I see in the /var/log/cups/error_log:
[Job 3] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
I am using DHCP in this LAN. Ping is working fine (client's hosts file updated with the print server's ip address.). This looks like a networking issue.
I cannot print with my Canon MX860. I have downloaded the proper drivers from the Canon Europe website and forced the arch to x64 as described on many sites. When I try to print a test page I get the error that "Idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij failed". I have checked in lib64 and pstocanonij was there as well. If I change the URI from USB to CNIJUSB then I get the error that "cnijusb has failed". It may be possible to get this working as in another forum someone claims to be successful. I am able to use the scanner with the sane-backends package, so that is not a problem.
I have tried selecting many of the drivers located on localhost:631 and none of them work. i550 is not in the list of drivers. When I select i560 it will print if it is only one line after that it seems to get confused and doesn't print. Sites that I have looked at [URL]...
My canon mf 4018 could not print in Centos 5.5 What I did before: I chose Administration/printing and there I tried to add new printer. Unfortunately, I could not find my model of the printer in that list. I used also official canon site to find a driver for Centos 5.5.
I just bought a new printer yesterday. It is a Canon Pixma iP2600 series. I connected everything properly and my computer found the drivers and told me the printer was ready for use. However, when I tried to print out a test page the computer said it was printing, the printer was flashing as it should, but nothing was printing out. Is there some switch I need to turn on or off? Is there something that I need to type in or delete somewhere? The old printer was a HP deskjet and it did work even if it was a little slow being that it is over 8 years old.
I recently purchased the canon pixma mg5220 and am currently figuring out how to print to it from my computer.
First of all, I dont know how to connect to it (its a wireless printer btw and is currently connected to my wireless router). I went to the "add new printer" part of the printer utility and selected "Find Network Printer." I dont know what to type in for "host" however. Right now i have a temporary fix of sharing the printer on my laptop (which runs windows) and printing through that.
Second of all, drivers. I found http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1588333 and downloaded the drivers (to my downloads folder) from the link provided, but I can't figure out how to install it. The post says to run the install.sh but it seems to be just a text file, and when i right click it, "properties" is not an option, so i cant mark it as executable. How would can i run this file to install the drivers?
Trying to make a Canon Pixma 3-in-1 MP250 to work with my Slackware. I've took the drivers from the canon website (they have .deb, .rpm and sources there) and compile. Basically I followed the instructions from INSTALL files in each subdirectory (backend,cngpij, etc).
Then I upgraded also CUPS to 1.4.3.
Installing the printer in CUPS, I end up with:
Code: Description:Canon MP250 series Location: Driver:Canon MP250 series Ver.3.20 (color) Connection:cnijusb:/dev/usb/lp0 Defaults:job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm
It seems ok. But when I send a test page (or any other kind) to printer, it shows some activity on the led display, cups reports the job as completed but nothing happens!
As an extra, I tried to convert .deb packages to .tgz and install from them. The same result, except now the scangear utility is working (so scanning is ok).
How can I find what's missing from here? Maybe it's a bug with cups/drivers or something is missing from configuration?
p.s. On other machine I have an Xubuntu (Karmic Koala). Installed there from .deb packages and the printer works as expected.
I am trying to connect to a network printer Dell 3110cn from Fedora 14 x64. Till a few days ago, everything was fine. However, over the last few days, I am unable to print anything using my old settings and I am unable to print even if I delete the printer and reinstall it.
During setup, Fedora is able to connect to the printer and I am able to install the drivers and everything. But, when I print something (even the test page), I get the error message "Unable to write print data - Broken pipe'.
I have searched online quite a bit about this problem. Most suggestions were to look if the printer status was "Idle - Ready/Accepting Jobs" since the problem in those cases was that the printer status was "Printer not ready". But in my case, the printer is recognized but unable to print.
Interesting problem: For the first time with Xubuntu 10.10 64bit, I am finding certain applications print corrupt. A varying amount of letters / numbers either get substituted/print a blank space/ print a box etc etc. This corruption seems to happen from a Pdf ( evince ) or Spreadheet ( Gnumeric ) Opening the same Pdf on another machine (ubuntu 10.10 32bit) prints perfectly. Opening the same .xls file on the original computer but using OOo Calc prints perfectly.
I guess I have ruled out any problems with the printer itself or the network JetDirect box. I have re-installed CUPS and evince and upgraded to the latest version of HPLIP but the problem appears unchanged.
I cannot print pdf files. I have tried using okular and xpdf. The documents display in the program, but print preview shows a blank page. The printer then sends out blank pages. I have tried printing on 2 different printers using usb cables. Using terminal to process the commands shows error:
