PostPosted: Thu 02 Aug 2012, 11:01    Post_subject:  Canon Printer Drivers - Updated 2014  

Update: The sections below used to contain many ready-made PETs for Canon printer drivers. But because of recent forum restrictions, most of them have been deleted. To let users install Canon printers on their own, I am introducing the Canon Debian Installer, or candi.

First, go here and read about debbi, particularly how to run it from the command line using tab-completion.

1. Install the candi-1.3.pet attached below.

2. Go to a Canon download site like here and locate the driver for your model. Many Canon drivers are grouped by series. Pick a model close to your own. You are looking for a Linux Debian package like iP2700 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.30 for Linux (debian Packagearchive).

3. Download and unpack the archive file. Locate two Debian files, like cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb and cnijfilter-ip2700series_3.30-1_i386.deb.

4. Open a terminal and run
Code:
candi cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb
candi cnijfilter-ip2700series_3.30-1_i386.deb

5. Unlike debbi, candi does not auto-install a printer. Run the CUPS wizard and install your printer as usual. Your printer will be listed as a "Canon XXX Series", not as a "Canon PIXMA XXX".

6. If your printer is networked, it should be detected. You do NOT need to install the network backends discussed below.

--------------------------------

This tool can also install Canon scanner drivers, which use Canon's own ScanGearMP scanning program.

1. From the the download site, find a scanner package such as MX920 series ScanGear MP Ver. 2.10 for Linux (debian Packagearchive).

2. Locate the two .deb files and run candi on them.

3. Look for ScanGearMP in the Graphics menu.

-------------------------------------

Some Canon drivers offer a limited set of options, like only RGB at 600dpi. Read here for a way to add more options.

------------------------------------

For Canon laser printers that use the CAPT or UFRII drivers, read here.

----------------------------------

The driver PETs in the sections below are built from official Canon packages, but trimmed down for Puppy.

When you run CUPS, your printer will be listed as a "Canon XXX Series", not as a "Canon PIXMA XXX".

Some Canon printers are network-enabled, but are not detected by the usual CUPS methods. For those models, install the cups-bjnp-1.0.pet below. CUPS will then install the unit with the URI: bjnp://aaa.bbb.cc.dd:8611.

Update: The above package contains an open-source CUPS backend for Canon networked printers. But it doesn't work with some new models. The canon_net_backend-3.90.pet below contains Canon's own backend and should be compatible with recent printers.

I have posted the canon_mg2100-3.60.pet above. Your printer will be listed in CUPS as a Canon MG2100 Series, not as a Canon PIXMA.

Racy has a control panel on the desktop. It has an option for setting up a printer. However, Wary 522 had significant problems with printing and I expect that they are also in Racy 522. Read here.

Glad to help.

Have you tried scanning yet? I don't believe that your unit will be detected by Xsane, so I have posted the Canon scanning software here.

For the benefit of other users, could you clarify some things?

1. What Puppy version are you using?

2. What is the correct model name of the first printer? Is it an i80 or an iP80?

3. I'm assuming that you used a Gutenprint driver when you did the install in CUPS. Which model did you choose for each printer?

I have posted above the official Canon iP90 driver. It may yield better quality output than the Gutenprint driver.
