Any scanning pet available???

Please read the main post about installing the scanner driver yourself using the candi tool.

I have a scanner PET for your MG6320, but I would need to upload it externally. I will do so if you cannot get candi to work.

@starhawk: This thread is just about using Canon vendor printer drivers. If you have a problem with some unidentified printer in some unidentified Puppy, please start a new discussion elsewhere.

The printer has been identified. The Pup I'm using has been identified. There are no vendor drivers, as has also been established, and (IIRC) TurboPrint was recommended and that's what I'm trying to use and having trouble with. I can't ask TurboPrint for help because (among other reasons) it's not the latest version (they don't support older versions at all).

For the record -- Canon i9900 is the printer, the Pup is X-Slacko 1.1 PAE, and I'm using TurboPrint 2.15. The specific problem is that (depending on which error message one wants to believe) either the print spooler itself is cancelling the print job instantly, or something else isn't working right and it's producing a document to the printer that's 0 pages long and empty inside. The printer doesn't even start to print... no blank pages, no nothin'.

Please help me, that's all I'm asking for.

Subject description: Test on Canon MX922
 

@rcrsn51
I installed the Candi Pet, wanted to test on Canon printer known to work with drivers you recently posted for the MX922. So with fresh Slacko 5.7 install, downloaded the Canon deb file for MX920 series, unpacked and placed the two cnijfiles for Intel I386 in /mnt/home directory, ran Candi from console for the two files and with firewall set off, ran CUPS admin., found the MX922, selected driver and default page setup. Ran test page, works fine !!!

Only question is where the two cnijfiles should be placed... they worked fine in /mnt/home, where puppy SFS, save file etc., are, but should they be copied to some other location?

Thanks again...

It shouldn't matter where you download them. Candi can install them from any location. And you don't need to move the files out of the "packages" folder.

Once you have run candi, the original debs can be deleted, unless you want to save them for a future install.

Could you please also test the scanner? It should work, but I don't have any test equipment for the MX series.

@rcrsn51
Scangearmp did not detect the Canon MX922 scanner that is working with the printer installed with Candi pet working wireless with WPA2 TKIP.

Is the MX922 scanner driver within the same Cnijfilter files used for the printer, or is there a different scanner specific set of drivers that needs to be installed?

Yes. Go back to the download site and find the package titled MX920 series ScanGear MP Ver. 2.10 for Linux (debian Packagearchive)

Use the same candi procedure on it.

OK, searched and found MX920 series ScanGear MP Ver. 2.10 for Linux (debian Packagearchive), downloaded, unpacked, used terminal and ran Candi for the two i386 Debian files, shut off firewall, used scangearmp update function, found the Canon MX922 scanner, ran test scan... Works great !!!

Thanks !!! Am just amazed... have very little experience... but your specific instructions led me to quick working solution again...

Excellent. I have updated the instructions for scanner installation in the main post.

For your setup with two scanners, you would just run candi on the newer common deb, then run it on the two model debs.

Thank you for testing. This procedure saves me from having to build the PETs and host them externally.

When you install a printer with candi, you also get some command-line utilities that are not included in the PETs. But some of them don't work in Puppy and most new Canons have an LCD control panel for doing maintenance.

If anyone has an older Canon and wants info about these utilities, please post a message.

@rcrsn51
Confirming your information above on installing newer Canon common common file, and each printer/scanner models file with Candi testing with Canon MX922 and MG5520 results in both being found by CUPS, and also found by Scangearmp and both able to print and scan together. All operating in fresh USB flash drive install of Puppy Slacko 5.7 wireless connected using WPA2 TKIP.

The installation of the pair with your new Candi Pet for printing and scanning took less than 5 minutes.

Thanks !!! This really does open the door for use of Puppy Linux with many models of low cost Canon printer/scanners found in the malls and online that sell for $30 to $100, Will be interesting to hear what other users experience using your new Candi Pet with Puppy Linux.

Excellent. For 64-bit users, I have posted a candi version for Fatdog here.

While I don't like to recommend printer models, I am a big fan of Canon. Unlike other makes, I find that their ink cartridges don't dry up if not used regularly.

Using PeasyPrint, I can print a decent photo with my Canon at a much higher speed than HP or Epson.

My only complaint is that the new models are not SANE-compatible, so they don't work with PeasyScan.

PostPosted: Sun 20 Jul 2014, 23:30    Post subject: Help with mp460 cups driver please  

rcrsn51,

The Canon site does not have a linux driver for the mp460. Have you got a pet or can you tell me how I can get the driver please. Another thread says that the mp160 would work also but that isn't on the site either. I am using Precise 571 but I can change to latest Slacko.

I had a Brother but that's seized up due to me not changing the ink promptly. This Canon hasn't had ink for a year but now copies fine with new cartridge. Thanks for your work on Canon MFD drivers.

I cannot find a Linux driver for the MP460. Canon Australia still has a driver for the MP160, but it is in RPM format. At the moment, candi only handles DEB packages. Locate the two RPM files for the MP160 and report back. We will discuss how to install it.

Code:
cnijfilter-common-2.70-1.i386.rpm
cnijfilter-mp160-2.70-1.i386.rpm

On the main page, I have posted candi v1.2. It works the same way.

Code:
candi cnijfilter-common-2.70-1.i386.rpm
candi cnijfilter-mp160-2.70-1.i386.rpm

Then install your printer in CUPS.
