The Canon PIXMA iP1000 ver2.5 is an old printer driver and may not be compatible with the modern Linux printing system. But here is a work-around.

1. Do a clean install of Slacko.
2. Install the canon_ip1000-2.50.pet again.
3. Create a document in Abword.
4. Select Print > Print to File (instead of selecting your Canon printer)
5. This will create a PDF document.
6. Open this file in your PDF viewer program.
7. Print it to your Canon printer.

I had managed to make this printer work via your instructions on the previous thread (Canon Pixma Printer Drivers), in April 2012 in LupuPlus.
The previous post has been updated & the printer fails to work in Slacko & puppy Precise. The error I get is "ccpdadmin command not found". Please help

@dsj: Please describe step-by-step exactly what you are doing to install this printer.

I downloaded the CAPT driver package again and I can't see a problem with the instructions.

Then I think this is the only way you will be able to print.

Try your printer in pemasu's latest Upup. It has the most standard CUPS system and might work better.

Got the printer working in Precise 5.6.1 after a few trials.

1 Frugal Install precise 5.6.1

2 Delete old save file & make a new save file. Do not install any software.

3 Download CAPT driver for linux 2.56 & extract the file.

4In the extracted directory look for Debian folder which has two files.

5 Install cndrvcups-common_2.56-1_i386.deb & then cndrvcups-capt_2.56-1_i386.deb

6 open up a terminal & enter the following commands
mkdir -p /etc/cngplp/account
chmod 777 /etc/cngplp/account
mkdir /var/captmon
chmod 777 /var/captmon
/etc/init.d/cups restart

7 now open up CUPS

8 add new printer

9 select CAPT printer (Canon LBP2900 shows up do not select it)

10 From manufacturers list select Canon

11 Select Canon LBP2900 CAPT ver 1.5

12 Add printer

13 In the next screen the software asks for printer URI
fill ccp://localhost:59687

14 Next screen asks for printer name. I entered canon2900

15 now go back to terminal & enter the following commands

ccpdadmin -p canon2900 -o /dev/usb/lp0
/etc/init.d/ccpd start

The printer was installed & I could print a test page from CUPS. Will further post regarding printing fom other software.

I have a pair of Canon printers I'd like to be able to use with my recently Puppified netbook. I don't have much experience with CUPS yet Embarassed but I've got to learn this -- I am an artist! Gotta be able to print...

Printer #1 is a PIXMA i9900. I don't know if there's a driver for this but I really hope there is Shocked it's my only 11x17 (for me, large format) printer... if I can't print from it in Puppy... well, that's a big problem.

Printer #2 is a PIXMA iP90. It's needing some attention at the moment (manual head cleaning and cartridge replacement) so it's a lower priority.

I'm running Upup Precise 3991 on the computer in question.

I cannot find Linux drivers for this model. However, I found a post claiming that it is compatible with the BJC-8500 Gutenprint driver, or maybe the PIXMA iP8500.

There is a driver posted on Page 1. But this old driver may not work well in new Puppies.

Thanks for the prompt response!

If you can point me to either driver you mentioned as being possibly compatible with the i9900 I can test it basically right away.

I noticed a newer driver for the iP90 on IIRC page 3 of this thread -- has that been tested in Upup Raring 3991? I'll be able to do that in a couple days, if it hasn't -- waiting on a replacement cartridge to arrive from the far-away land of eBay Wink

EDIT: sorry, post with that iP90 driver is pg2, about a third of the way down. A pity one cannot upgrade the RAM in one's head... Wink

Gutenprint drivers are built into Puppy.

oh Embarassed told ya I was new to this.

I'll go try it out. Hope I can figure it out on my own -- printer's upstairs and the 'Net doesn't get that far.

Apparently there's a Gutenprint driver specifically for that printer. Tried it. Worked Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I got me a test page. Only thing I don't like is that it says Ubuntu on the test page but I'll have to get with pemasu about that Razz maybe.

Looks like there's an iP90 Gutenprint driver as well. If it works that'd rock hard.

PostPosted: Fri 06 Dec 2013, 21:48    Post subject: MG 2100 on networked router  

I have the MG 2100 connected to a USB port on the ASUS RT-N16 router next to the HP P1006.

The P1006 continues to work well via the networked router.

I have canon_mg2100-3.60.pet loaded and have tried setting it via AppSocket/HP JetDirect as socket://192.168.1.1:8611 but print jobs sent there come out of the P1006

Do I need to use the cups-bjnp-1.0.pet instead?

When the P1006 runs out of paper or is otherwise interrupted I reset using the Console variables you provided:

Code:
cat /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihoP1006.dl | nc -w 1 192.168.1.1:9100


Do I need something like that for the Cacon MG 2100 as well?

Thanks!
