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 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?
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.
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
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.
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 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'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'm brand new to Ubuntu and have a MX860 wireless printer.I want to use it from the Ubuntu system.The printer is already on line and functional wirelessly.I downloaded the drivers but it is unclear how to load.I expected to click on something to load but there are a whole bunch of files enclosed.Clicking the install.sh file makes the screen blink but that is about it.A screen print of the main files is attached.
I have Canon MX860 Multifunction USB/Wireless printer that I am trying to add in Fedora 13. Looking under Desktop > Computer via USB connection, the printer is detected as some hardware device I can mount and unmount. However, when I am trying to add this printer via System > Administration > Printing, the printer is not detected at all nor can I add. FYI, this printer works fine in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. How I can make this printer working in Fedora 13?
I have a Canon PIXMA MG5250 stand alone wifi printer thats connected to all my windows computers and laptops. Now I want to install a computer with Ubuntu 10.10 and connect this printer also wireless by wifi.
I have just installed OpenSuse 11.4 on my old desktop Compaq Presario, I coming from an amount of experience with Linux, anyway, for the moment I have a problem with my printer connected on a domestic network, this printer have an assigned address as the same as for my desktop and all other devices of this network, but I'm not able to connect with it, if I try to connect the printer by USB I haven't no problem, more strange is because of the printer have got a scanner and I was able to connect it via network, the same problem I had with Ubuntu.
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
Have updated my system to 11.4 (Fresh install) and installed the driver from canon, and when you print the test page, it prints fine. But it now when I want to print a pdf or web page where it will say printer data error on the printer. Another thing is that it seems to print fine when the document is plain text like if I print a document from libre, it will print or when i send a print test page. Also when the document does not go through, the cnpkmoduleufr2 sits in memory and then chows 50% of cpu. In 11.3 worked beautifully so am thinking that this is a software issue.
When I try to set up my printer a Canon Pixma MP530, there is no driver! Only the Generic ones and they don't work. On Ubuntu using the Pixma MP500 driver works just fine, but there is no option for that on suse. Only for HP and Generic. The only solution I have found was turbo print, and that costs $30. I am hoping to find a solution, I really like SUSE, but I may have to go back to Ubuntu.
Need to install a Wacom Intuos2 tablet. ALso Have a Canon MP620 multi-function printer that YaST does not see. It tells me that it is a bad port. I have pinged it and it is there but YaST won't let me install it.
I have a canon pixma mp640. Under opensuse 11.2 64 bit the printer worked (printing and scanning via wifi). I recently reinstalled my system with 11.3 64 bit, and after installing the canon rpms and creating the printer I get the following error in /var/log/cups/error_log:
Backend returned status 1 (failed) printer-state-message="Illegal backend: Success"
In opensuse 11.2 I needed to create some links:
cd /usr/lib64/cups/filter ln -s ../../../lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij cd /usr/lib64/cups/backend
I have been running my Canon Pixma MP460 for years on suse linux. Worked fine also after upgrade to suse 11.4. I was running MP460 using MP160 drivers as per some forum information when 460 drivers were not available. Some recent updates, however, have killed operation of my printer. Will not even print a test page. I have tried my old MP160 driver and variations of same and new MP460 drivers from CUPS-Gutenprint.
Consistent error message is: "The PPD version (134566257) is not compatible with Gutenprint 5.2.7."
I downgraded and upgraded CUPS. I have deleted and reinstalled many printer drivers for MP160 and MP460. I have run the "cups-genppdupdate.5.2" per the error log message and other cups update programs in the same directory. Keep getting same message. Printer works when I reboot to windows 7 so hardware has not failed.
System is: Suse 11.4 32 bit w/usb mp460 printer. Hate to bid farewell to my old faithful printer.
Have Ubuntu 10.10 on Toshiba Laptop and Brother Wireless printer HL-2170W Everything worked OK and could install printer and print. However now system will not find printer, only thing I can think of that is different is that I installed all updates a few nights ago. If I go to System/Admin/Printing/Add Printer/Find - it will not find it. Have removed and reinstalled the Cups printer config tool. I am new to Linux. System will print when booted to Vista.
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.
I can't seem to find drivers for my wireless adapter, TL-WN722NC, so that it can work on Linux (Ubuntu). I have already emailed the company, TP-Link, and they said that it does not support Linux yet.Is there a way that I might be able to get drivers for it somewhere else?
I'm having problems getting the wifi to work on my toshiba satellite pro l40 (psl4be). My laptop has a wifi card built in but linux cant seem to be able to find it. I tryed following these instructions and i got this output:
Code: james@james-laptop:~$ lsusb Bus 007 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
as you can see its telling me i have no wifi card, even though i am fully aware i do. ive tryed using ndiswrapper to install the windows drivers of the ethernet adaptor but my wifi still doesnt work, im guessing ethernet has nothing to do with wifi.I intend to convert from windows, however if i cant get the wifi to work i can only see linux at a major disadvantage as i use my wifi alot.
