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.
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
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 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 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.
I'm trying to get my Canon Pixma MG 5150 scanner/printer to work. While the 'printer' is doing well the 'scanner' appears to be stubborn. I use the scangearpm-MG5100series-1.60-1 driver provided by Canon which is said to be fine with Suse 11.2.
The trouble is, that though the scanner scans it does not deliver anything back. Here are the details:
When I run scangearmp as root in a terminal I get the following output:
Code: (scangearmp:6902): GVFS-RemoteVolumeMonitor-WARNING **: cannot connect to the session bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
I recently got the printer part working by downloading from canon the correct rpm also in doing this I got the scanner driver. My computer tells me it is installed but I see no program to connect with my scanner. There is nothing in xsane or simple scan to allow me access to the scanner.
1. Unless root chmod's /dev/parport0 to include o+rw, a user running xsane just gets the dialog 'No devices available'. Should the canon_pp driver be installed as su root, perhaps? CUPS uses the same port for printing without problems. Which library or executable needs to have permissions changed to change to run as root?
2. The N640P has a printer output port built in. As I have only one parallel port, I piggy-back my printer through the scanner. This does not work for xsane in Copy mode: nothing prints until I close xsane and then all I get printed is a stream of binary characters, not an image. I guess the canon_pp driver is holding the port open in such a way that CUPS sees the device as being busy. Any ideas on how to combat that? I am a C programmer and quite happy to help by hacking the code, if I have a start point. It irritates me to have to boot the print server into WinXP just so scanning and copying work without fuss.
I have a canon printer which was working so far. After my latest upgrade its giving errors saying "Printer not connected -- Check your connection" Fortunately I had a backup of my root before the upgrade and one difference I see is that on the new system theres no /dev/usb/lp0 which there is on the old one. So how do I make it? Or should I use the /dev/lp0? Note they are different:
So (naturally) when I tried to make a softlink from /dev/usb/lp0 to /dev/lp0 it did not work.
Since installing F11, my Canon LIDE 50 scanner refuses to work. xsane 0.996 produces an error message: Failed to start scanner: Error during device I/O.
sane-find-scanner says it is there: found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x2213 [CanoScan], chip=GL841?) at libusb:001:006 But scanimage -L claims: No scanners were identified.except once when it admitted: device `genesys:libusb:001:006' is a Canon LiDE 35/40/50 flatbed scanner
I reluctantly tested the scanner on a Windoze machine and it works perfectly. And it worked perfectly under F10.
Been using ubnutu gnome for a loooong time and my printer (Canon MX340) has been running just fine, configuration and usage.
I now switch to kde. configure my printer the same way i would under gnome and as soon as i send a job, it processes for about 3 seconds and just marks "stopped" under status. nothing goes through anymore!!
i've updated from 4.5 to 4.6 with backports and nothing is happening on there either.
im running maverick amd64 and using the i386 drivers (with dpkg -i --force-all) which are still recognized even under kde.
p.s.: the printer normally runs as wireless standalone (no samba/cups involvment whatsoever)
i am running T43 Thinkpad box with Ubuntu 11.04. we have a canon network printer model i-SENSYS MF4570dn printer, and i am trying to install the UFR II driver which i downloaded from canon website. the problem i am facing is that when i install the driver with gdebi i receive error message saying: Dependency is not satisfiable: gs-esp.i tried to install ge-eps but it is not part of the repository for 11.04
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.
after looking around for hours, i finally gave up and decided to write this post. I need to know exactly what to do to get my canon mx860 printer connected to ubuntu wireless. ive tried nearly everything, but nothing really makes sense and it just doesn't work.
I am delving into the world of scanners for the first time. With 9.04, my Cannon CanoScan LiDE 25 works without a hitch in ScanLite and Scanner Utility but not in XSane. I am able to scan photos and such and get good quality images. I have an infrequent need to make copies of pieces of paper and have been experimenting a bit trying to make my scanner and printer act like a copier. what type of images to take and how to print them?
I am a new convert to Fedora with very little knowledge of Linux in general. I have managed to install Fedora 11 on my Advent 8315 laptop and I have wireless connection via my Belkin Wireless N modem router. I have always been able to setup Windows networking successfully but Fedora is much more complex, using terminology that I am not familiar with. What I need to do to achieve networking with my Windows computer? I especially want to network to my Canon printer which is connected to the Windows PC.
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'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit on an Intel i7. I just bought a Canon color ImageClass MF8050cn laser printer and connected it to the network. I let the software pick a driver, but when I print my document goes into a black hole never to be found again. I also have a Mac and a Vista machine which can both connect just fine and print in color. So it's not the printer.
Has anyone successfully made this work? If so, what driver are you using, where do I get it if it's not in Synaptic, and what settings do I use? I checked on the Canon site, but they only support Windows and Mac. Before anyone goes there, I would like to use a non-generic driver for this if possible. I'm at work right now and the printer is at home, so I can't get specifics at the moment.
