rcrsn51,

Thanks.

There were 4 installation errors in total all due to the assumption that /usr/lib contained files matching libcn*. I think.

I have done a couple of test prints which were ok.

Strange that there's no mp460 driver. The manual was updated a few weeks ago.

Something is broken in the Forum - it's not displaying text (at least I can't see it after I Submit) & it offers Edit/Delete but when chosen no Delete option is offered.

Subject description: Canon MG2520 Linux Drivers?
 

Forum appears to be behaving today ...

Just connected a Canon MG2520 printer & CUPS doesn't recognize it.

These are OVERPRICED at Walmart - stacks of them in the nearby college town - si I imagine the Linux world will be asked to support them for each distro.

Has anyone gotten the printer side of these to work, please?

I'm not concerned about the scanner right now but will need to return this if there are no plans to support the printer.

Thanks - David

You have posted to a thread that has detailed instructions for installing Canon printers in Puppy. What more do you want?

I saw no reference to the Canon MG2520 & my experience has been that everything tends to be very model-specific.

I will try to sift through the 12 pages of this thread, again, to see if I can find what I need to know to get this thing working.

Thanks - David

I saw the date of 2012 & jumped forward looking for more current discussions since was is a new printer.

What you've done seems a new & better methodology.

I'll go back & see if I can sort it out.

Thanks - David

I'm guessing that this means I need to return the printer?

Read Step #2 and the link it contains. Canon Australia has a driver for your model.

I looked there first.

Nothing under MG-2520, MG2520, mg-2520, or mg2520.

Also tried inkjet all-in-one & it's not listed there, the only one close is PIXMA MG2560.

What am I missing, please?

Nothing. Most Canon models are grouped by series. Pick a model close to your own.

Struggling with Canon drivers as well. I am in the need of drivers for the Canon Mx 515 and as you can see I have a huge problem cos the printer is not here but across the country. See my thread.

I know the canon site list the drivers as mx510 but I think it will be fine cos also windows drivers are listed the same.

How can I make a PET file that includes drivers for print and scan?
I have never build PET myself so l worry I might mess up something and me being across the country I can not sit down and fix things if I mess up.

The Precise 5.7.1 user needs a solution that will be as easy as PET. Click and it will work.
