PostPosted: Sun 06 Feb 2011, 21:43    Post_subject:  How to use Canon MP280 scanner printer?  

anyone got one of these to work ??

i downloaded and compiled the source code for scangearmp-1.60-1

running the scangear application the scanner appears to operate and the progress box pops up. then it just locks up.

i see these error messages:

# scangearmp
error - libusb speedup error handling needs improvement
error - libusb speedup error handling needs improvement
error - libusb speedup error handling needs improvement

well i read some stuff barry wrote about libusb-0.1 and libusb-1.0 in quirky so i installed libusb1-1.0.8-q1.pet and libusb1_DEV-1.0.8-q1.pet but it makes no difference.

i tried changing the libusb.so symlink to point to libusb-1.0 but the compile then failed.

have i bought another dud?

Not at all.

For printing, I have attached a driver package below. Since I can only run a simulated test of your MP280, please reply back with its success or failure.

For scanning, your simplest choice is the pixma-backend-qrky-1.0.21.pet from here. It should give you scanning functionality from either Xsane or Peasyscan.

[Edit] Your MP280 may not work through SANE. If not, we will have to build a scangearmp package.

[Edit] I have attached them at the end of the thread here.

The machine copies ok but trying anything else produces the following:

# sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1746 [MP280 series]) at libusb:002:004
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.
# scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Which Puppy version are you using?

Exactly what have you tried? My printer package? My Scangear MP package?

Do you get the same results if you run off your Live CD using "puppy pfix=ram"?

The above packages were built for the standard Quirky/Wary/Lupu versions. I can't even find a reference to Puppeee 504. If you can give me a link, I can test it.

[Edit] I found a copy but I couldn't get it to work on a non-eee machine.

I finally got puppeee to boot on a non-eee machine and none of the above messages make sense. Did you try to upgrade CUPS on your machine at some point?

Also, I ran a simulated test of the Scangear MP280 scanner package in puppeee and it looks good.

ok i removed all the cups and sane stuff from /initrd/pup_ro1

i installed:
canon_mp280-3.40.pet
pixma-backend-431-1.0.21.pet
scangearmp_common-1.60.pet
scangearmp_mp280series-1.60.pet

xsane still doesn't work but scangearmp is scanning and cups is printing.

LESSON!
if your printer don't work, ask rcrsn51

thanks again from pete vk6fun

I can't get it to print in the latest Saluki 008, I get no responce

I installed the canon_mp280-3.40.pet

ran cups , found the printer selected the driver, set the printer options.

I just don't get any sign of life from it, I select print test page, it responds test page sent, page say's no job.

I select view jobs, and click on the printer it responds 400 Bad Request

Code:
ID    Name    User    Size    Pages    State    Control 
canon-8    Test Page    anonymous    17k    Unknown     completed at Thu Jan 26 20:52:11 2012 


I just don't know how to fault find cup's never having done it before

I did have this working with racy and a earlier version of Saluki, which one I can't remember of hand but think it was pre XFCE, scanner works fine, have never had a problem with it.

any help would be appreciated.

Geoffrey
