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'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.
Loaded Debian Jessie (x64) and when adding printers, can see my printer which attached ok to my RaspberryPi and can print thru it, but can not attach to my Jessie box. If it adds, it can't see it or reports printer is busy, tried every config I could find on the web. Previous versions of Debian I loaded the canon print driver separately and loaded the cnij(?) filter. Do I still have to do that? Is there a trick to getting a network canon to work?
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?
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....?
This is my first attempt with Yum and Fedora for that matter. I need to load a print driver and network driver for an MX860 printer. I downloaded the drivers and they are in the download folder. When I try to install I get what is below. How do I resolve? Do I need to identify where the driver is? If so, how?

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?
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.
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!
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 1:18.104.22.168.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
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 searched for solutions for hours and yet can't manage to get my printer to work. I downloaded (as it was suggested elsewhere) the "cnijfilter-common" and the "cnijfilter-ip2600" that I found on Canon website. However when I want to install the first package, it says : "Error : Failed to satisfy all dependencies (broken cache)". (I use Ubuntu 9.10) Edit : I found that the missing dependency was "libcupsys2" but I can't find it on Synaptic...
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:
Just installed drivers for Lexmark pro200 - S500 series. However although it is recognised by the system and has a tick by its name, And tells me it is connected via usb file goes to print que but will not print. Also tells me it is Printing - localhost! is this correct?.
I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints. The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 with a Laserjet 5M printer. When I attempt to print a job from Firefox or from Okular, the job never gets onto the print queue. However, I can print test pages on the printer and also print from OpenOffice, so this seems to be app-dependent. I know the jobs aren't being queued because the job number doesn't increase (as shown by the jobs for the test pages). Both Firefox and Ocular give every indication that the print job has been processed correctly.
Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.
