I am trying to find the driver and scanamp for a MG 2220 printer.

I tried this, but it does not open.

Are you looking for the printer driver or the scanner driver?

Have you read the instructions for installing the driver yourself using the "candi" tool?

That is completely useless information. What does "open" mean?

I installed the PET in Slacko 630 without problems.

I need the scanner driver.

The scangear would not start.

Please read this section again. The pixma driver has NOTHING to do with the scangearmp program. It is designed to work with programs like xsane.

So I don't understand how you are trying to run scangearmp. If you want scangearmp, you must install the driver yourself using candi.

Try the newer pixma driver below. It may work with an MG2220 in Slacko 630 using xsane.


I read that section. Canon no longer has the driver I need.

I will try the newer pixma driver.

A problem with the "common" rpm. ??

Quote:
# candi scangearmp-common-2.00-1.i386.rpm
rpm: can't create symlink from ./usr/lib/libsane-canon_mfp.so to libsane-canon_mfp.so.2.0.0: File exists
rpm: can't create symlink from ./usr/lib/libsane-canon_mfp.so.2 to libsane-canon_mfp.so.2.0.0: File exists
cups: restarted scheduler.
Done!

You said that you would try the new pixma driver, but you never reported on it.

You should NOT be installing RPM files - the instructions state that candi works with DEB files.

At this point, your only course of action is a clean install.

I found it.

Not what your instructions say.

Quote:

4. Open a terminal where the files are located and run
Code:
candi cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb
candi cnijfilter-ip2700series_3.30-1_i386.deb


I suggest you edit the post.

I need more info than "clean install."

Fair enough. Give me the correct instructions and I will change it.

You still didn't report on the results of installing the new pixma driver and testing it with xsane.

If I knew that, would I be posting ? Smile

Installed pixma driver.

Made sure scanner was on and ran xsane and clicked on USB.

Nothing happened.

You should get the message "No devices available". It you didn't even get that message then your system is corrupt.

In any case, trying to install scangearmp for your model using RPM files is guaranteed to fail.

So, I am out of luck unless the pet versions can be found.

I am currently using a HP G60 system.

I found the Debian packages for the MG2200 series at the Canon Australia site.

I am going to install Debian and see if the scanner works in it.

I have plenty of hard drive space.
