PostPosted: Mon 14 Apr 2014, 12:58    Post_subject: Canon MX922 CUPS
Sub_title: MX920 Series Pet
 

Thanks rcrsn51, happy to see you back! I tried the MX920 series pet you posted with Slacko 5.7. With firewall off, The MX922 was not detected... many dozens of tries. The printer is working basic printing with Chrome 33 and Chromium 34. But I would like to still get it to work with CUPS. I am aware of postings about the MX922 having something different than the MX920 that may be issue with needing different driver.

The Canon MX922 is on Amazon.com best seller list, and has very good user reviews. It is also being sold at Costco, Amazon and a number of other stores here in US for $99 now. It also has many very low cost suppliers of compatible ink cartridges.

Unrelated, I did borrow an old HP Photosmart C309a and using your posted updates, the C309a did wireless connect and works fine.

Any additional suggestions for me to try? Thanks.

@Dpup:

Are you using your MX920 as a local USB printer or as a networked printer?

Your first step should be to connect it directly and verify that the driver works.

If you are networking the printer, you need the cups_bjnp-1.0.pet from Page 1.

Sub_title: Failed to Read Back Channel Data
 

rcrsn51, thanks...you are a genius !!!

Progress !!!... Direct USB connect prints fine on MX922 with CUPS and Slacko 5.7... now trying to get wireless to work.

I installed the cups_bjnp-1.0.pet, and it now sees the network printer, but when I print to it, CUPS reports "Failed to read Back Channel Data"

I have also borrowed a Canon MG5520 to try... But same issue no CUPS driver for MG5520. CUPS can see the printer, so I tried two closes CUPS drivers, and get error "Failed Side Channel...."

Thanks for the suggestions... I will keep trying anything to see if CUPS can work wireless with these popular Canon printers...

It sounds like the bjnp backend doesn't work with this model and you need the official Canon backend.

Go here and get the cnijfilter-mx920series-3.90-1-deb.tar.gz

Unpack it and locate the two files cnijfilter-common_3.90-1_i386.deb and cnijfilter-mx920series_3.90-1_i386.deb.

Click on each to install them.

Restart CUPS with the command /etc/init.d/cups restart.

Run CUPS and delete your current printer.

Rediscover your printer and select the cnijnet backend.

Sub_title: Wireless
 

rcrsn51, Again Thanks, Unpacked and installed the two files for i386 of my HP laptop and Slacko 5.7, and followed your posted instructions, And Whoopie !!!... the new Canon MX922 is now working with CUPS wireless or USB wired !!!

Am connected on the WiFi wireless using WPA2 TKIP...

You are a true master and genius !!! We cannot help but notice that tens of thousands have viewed this series about Canon printing with CUPS... And you came thru with the solution that has been so elusive for months on the current, and very popular, highly rated, new generation of Canon printer for Puppy Linux users... and all the dozens of other Canon printers too...

Sub_title: Testing New Pets
 

rcrsn51, Thanks... installed latest pets MX920 and MG5500 series and backend 3.90 you posted on MX922 and MG5520 on new clean install of Puppy Linux Slacko 5.7 USB boot. Connection is WPA2 TKIP on my router. Firewall shut off for the CUPS search for new printers... Both printers found, both work fine in testing with web pages, email, and other test pages.

Both of these Canon printers are current volume models in retail stores and online. Saw ad from Target today selling the MG5520 for under $60. The MX922 is $99 at Costco, Amazon and other retailers and have very good reviews. Both printers use the same series larger ink tanks with very low price compatible cartridges sold by third parties online.

Both printers also work with Windows, Android Tablets and Smart Phones, Apple IPad, IPhone, Airlink and Google Cloud printing and the Chrome and Chromium browsers. Both also have USB connector in addition to the WiFi wireless.

So next... looking at making Puppy Linux work with the scanners in these units.

I have posted the canon_net_backend-3.90.pet on page 1.

It used to be that Canon scanning units were automatically recognized by a built-in SANE backend. But this is no longer true.

The Canon scanning PETs are here. When I get some time, I will build PETs for your MX920 and MG5500.

X-Slacko 1.1. CUPS 1.4.8.

Canon i9900. Gutenprint driver.

Spits out prints that are way too dark, and it thinks that the bottom and right edges of the paper (standard letter) are about a quarter inch farther out than they actually are. It's actually /stretching/ the page to make this happen. I can see it. The test page has an oval for the little color wheel, instead of a circle.

Poked around with the sixty million settings in CUPS. No changes anywhere.

This would be less of a problem if my other operable printer weren't out of ink. I've ordered some, but it won't be here today, and I really don't like the idea of using a Windblows machine for all my printing needs on that one printer...

Some joker on the Ubuntu forums recommended using the BJC-8500 driver.

It prints a full page in 1/4 the space.

Thanks, guy Evil or Very Mad

Canon does not make a Linux driver for your i9900. AFAIK, there are two options:

1. Make do with Gutenprint. Gutenprint drivers are well-known for only having basic functionality.

2. Buy a commercial package like TurboPrint. You probably don't want to do that.

Gutenprint demonstrably does not work, as described.

I found an old copy of TurboPrint floating freely in the wilds of the Internet, may try that.

Sub_title: Canon PIXMA MG6320
 

Does anyone know of a driver for a Canon PIXMA MG 6320? I've been using Slacko 5.4 and am in the process of upgrading to version 5.7, however I can't, for the life of me, get my Canon to print. I have CUPS 1.4.8. Gutenprint drivers do not have my specific printer. Tried closest ones...no luck. Tried cnifilter-mg6300series-3.80-1.deb. Have added and tried both cups-bjnp-1.0.pet and canon_net_backend=3.90.pet (individually)...no luck. Have had both usb and network (for wireless) recognize my printer. With usb I appear to successfully print, but no printout. With wireless I get a "failure to read side channel request" error. Is there any hope for this printer?

@pupusr:

I have posted a PET for the MG6300 series here. Click the small grey Download button on the left.

Please install and report back with the results. It is the courteous thing to do. Many newcomers do not understand this.

@starhawk: What happened with your TurboPrint project? This would have been useful information for other community members.

This forum is not a blog. Just saying what you plan to do is of no use to anyone.
