PostPosted: Mon 05 Oct 2009, 07:45    Post_subject:  Canon pixma printer drivers
Sub_title: for Pixma (IP/MP/MX) models v2.70 up-to v3.30
 

Hmmm .....

These are canon pixma (inkjet/multifunction) printer drivers grouped by release versions. They have been rebuilt from source for the puppy platform. Canon driver sets v2.90 & v2.80 have been patched for cups backend naming compliance. The backend drivers will work with any CUPS version. The original backends were named cnij_usb and CUPS 1.3.x+ will reject backends with underscores. The patched usb backend (included in all driver pets here) is basically the same to the ones in canon common v3.00 driver.

Canon Pixma/MFP Driver(s) & related software(s)

CUPS Canon bjnp wireless connectivity v0.5.4 [download]
Usage notes:
i) For canon models with wireless interface
ii) For use with canon driver sets v3.00 and below
iii) CUPS Requirements: 1.3.x and above
iv) Note: Only supports CUPS 1.2 and above,
. but actual support is determined during compilation.
. The module here was compiled with CUPS 1.3.10 ...
v) Firewall: If you are unable to see the printer listed,
. you may have to open canon bjnp ports 8611, 8612,
. 8613 and 8614 (all tcp/udp).

The models listed below are from v2.50-v2.70 driver sets. They use GTK1 interface and requires updating to GTK2. I did some preliminary updates to v2.50 drivers (note: untested) but have since begun merging all the previously defined models into v3.00 source. As these will take a lot of time to do, the models listed below will only be built on a case-by-case basis (as time permits).

v2.70 driver source defined models
[Merging into v3.00 completed]
ip90, ip1800, ip2500, ip3300, ip4300
mp160, mp510, mp600

v2.60 driver source defined models

mp500

v2.50 driver source defined models

Hmmm .....

The drivers listed below are my current attempt at merging some of the printer models defined from v2.50 - v2.70 into the v3.00 driver source. All drivers from v2.50 up-to v2.70 are gtk1 based and all drivers from v2.80 upwards are gtk2 based. Merging them should make our life simpler .....

Driver packages will be prepared only if there is a request for a particular model and also subject to time availability. No time frame is set for completion.

Please note that these packages should be considered to be preliminary tests drivers. Kindly report any issues that you may have when using these drivers. I will take note of the issues (if any) arising from these driver packages but please remember that I'm lame with C and a total klutz with GTK ..... debugging will take some time .....

6. mp160 series download
7. mp510 series download
8. mp600 series download

9. mp620 (stalled - no time frame set)

I am new to Puppy and love it so far, even though I've been having problems with sound.

I have Puppy 430 on a Gateway 400 Tower, and an old Compaq desktop. I would like to use the Compaq as a host for my Canon iP1800 printer for my home network. My other systems on my network are a Dell Dimension desktop running Windows Vista and a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows XP.

Two questions.
1) What do I need to do to Puppy to let the Windows systems recognize them on my network?
2) How can I get a driver for my Canon iP1800 printer for Puppy?

Thank you.

Brilliant work as usual.
For an ip4600 would I use the ip4500 driver or perhaps the one in the latest gutenprint,

regards

I tried the latest Gutenprint driver Mike, but it prints greys very dark. Perfectly acceptable for letters etc, but graphics printed dark and 'pixy'

1. If you meant having a printer on puppy pc shared to other windows pcs, then there's a few ways to get it done. Check this thread out ...

2. I am working on merging the older drivers into the newer versions. Since your canon model is in the older versions, I've prep up a test driver package (look above) for you to try (Welcome volunteer...!) ..... Please post some report if you gave it a shot .....

Please open a new thread for your issues for further discussion if required.

Those light blue colored links sure made it easy to miss certain words/numbers ... I'll try to arrange them later on so that they'll be easy on the eyes ...

I sure hope these drivers works alright .....

Hi Patriot - Thanks for the Canon drivers. NewEgg just delivered a MX860 to play with. The driver loads well with CUPs 1.3.3 and seems to communicate with the printer (even told me the printer was busy while by son printed homework) but the printer does not spit out a printed page. I've got the check on allow desktop to print to server under Admin page. Any ideas. Thanks

Just a quick not to let you know I have tried the drivers you mentioned and they worked without modifications in my Puppy 430 on the old OLD Compaq system. Very Happy

Also,

I was successful in sharing my Puppy iP1800 printer across my home network to two systems:

1) a Gateway 2000 running Puppy 430 [no work needed]
2) a Dell Inspiron B120 laptop running Windows XP SP2 [just had to configure the printer via http]

I was UN-successful in sharing the Puppy iP1800 printer to a third system, a Dell Dimension desktop running Windows Vista. Will keep researching this one.

Thank you for letting me know that the merged driver works ok for the ip1800. I should be able to complete all v2.70 model merging soon.

For accessing puppy shared printer from vista, I found this wiki that may be of some help to you .....
