Subject description: On 4.0-4.1.2
 

3 4

EDIT!!!:
Puppy 4.2 and later have all the drivers needed printing and 4.3 has everything needed for scanning! Yay! So printing works out of the box for 4.2 and later! Yay!

After long last I was finally able to completely set up my new multifunction in Puppy. In case anyone else owns the same machine, the following should hopefully make life easier for them.

Setting up the printer:

1.Install these pets:

printer_common.pet
printer_series.pet


2.Then install the printer normally through CUPS just taking care to select "USB printer #1 with status readback for canon ij (Canon MP610 series)" when asked what device and you should have one working printer. Yes!!!

Setting up the scanner:

1.Install pet:
scangearmp-mp610-1.10-1.i386.pet

2. I personally can't seem to get the scanner working with the default version of Xsane so I usually reinstall it and all it's packages manually following Muggins' instructions here to a tee.

3. Update libsane-pixma by installing this pet. You might want to make a back up of your current /usr/lib/sane/libsane-pixma.so.1.0.18 as this pet will replace it. And having done that the scanner should be up and running Very Happy

I'm no pro, but I'll be happy to do my best to assist anyone trying this out. Many thanks to Muggins for all his help and patience Smile
