OpenSUSE Hardware :: Canon I860 Printer Drivers Not Included In 11.2
Feb 23, 2010
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 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 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.
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 am software developer, and I am new in kernel programming. I have token a look at linux sources, I found that drivers of all hardware are included in linux kernel sources. The question is, how Linux include this drivers on the Kernel?
- Including drivers statically in the the kernel is illogical of course. Since drivers will be loaded, all of them, even if they are not used. - making drivers as dynamic libraries (.so) is not sufficient, too. How does the kernel include this library if it was already compiled and build ?
Moreover, will Linux sources grow every time a new driver take place ? this causes many troubles: - Compiling linux will become slower year after year. - linux evolution will be difficult because next versions must support old drivers. - Linux Distributions will be huge in size.
I use (open) SUSE since version 7.1 and never had any trouble using my HP Laserjet 4L. So I hardly paid any attention to the installation after installing OpenSuse 11.2. Until I tried to print something from OpenOffice.org and my printer started printing empty pages with a first page with some garbage. It looked like a wrong driver. Suse recognized the printer without any trouble and installed - what seemed the correct - driver. I tried several other drivers from the list but they all gave the same result.
Something wrong with the printer - which functions already more than ten years? I tried it on Windows Vista (dual boot on the same computer) and Vista printed without any problem a correct test page. So nothing wrong with the printer. I tried a live CD with Ubuntu 9.10. And Ubuntu gave the same problem as OpenSuse: printing a line with garbage and empty pages. Is something wrong with the kernel?
I'm new to openSUSE and have only used Ubuntu. I have a Epson Stylus NX110 all in one printer. All I really care about is the print capabilities, scanning is a secondary issue. Suse recognizes the printer but doesn't have a driver for it. On Ubuntu I had to use the NX105 drivers but they worked just fine.
Ubuntu 10.04 and have a problem with loading the Linux printer drivers for my new Lexmark printer. When I try to load up the printer driver downloaded from the Lexmark site I am asked to enter a root administrator password, but when I enter the password I used to setup the OS it will not accept it. I have reviewed the "sudo" terminal password info, but as I am a newbie I was concerned about wrecking the installation.
I am trying to set uamsung clx2160N as a standalone network printer on my home network. It is a printer with standalone network capability and is connected directly to my router and has a static IP number. We have a few Windows computers at home and they had no problem detecting the printer, installing the drivers and working. Unfortunately my Ubuntu computer recognises the printer and I can even access it's setup and diagnositcs through its IP number. However when I try to add it as a printer, drivers for it cannot be located. #ve tried setting it up three ways:1. Using Samsung's own setup package - finds printer and all the details it needs to work but offers no drivers2. Using Ubuntu's printer setup - recognises printer but stalls at Searching for Drivers dialog3. Trying to *** printer using CUPS - no problem finding and recognising printer, but when I come to search for the driver I get Internal Server Error.
I have of course been trying to do all of these as root. That's the limit of my knowledge reached and searches on the net aren't helping me either. The printer works fine directly connected via USB, so the drivers are on the computer somewhere. How do I get them set up to use the printer on the network?
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 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.
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)
