Canon MFCdn printer driver for Ubuntu Can anyone help please? Then after an update recently it stopped working, and I can't work out how to re-load the driver - or even which driver to re-load!
Apologies for complete ignorance. Find More Posts by Vivanne. The first search I did found the drivers. Did you look to see if there was a driver in the Ubuntu repos? Drivers rarley stop working. I would bet you have some other problem.
Are you using cups? Find More Posts by camorri. Just try removing the printer and then reinstall it. Otherwise, install the driver again. To remove the printer, open a web browser and enter the URL: You should be able to figure it out from there. Does lpstat report anything unusual? Awesomely quick replies, thank you very much! I have tried out the ltest -t code, without trying the printer, and then with. On the second, I got the message as in the attached screenshot.
It says the printer is enabled? I found the drivers on the Canon website, but could not work out which was appropriate for my system, so chose the latest version. When I tried to install it, I failed. Yes I am using cups, or rather my machine is using cups, or cups is using me, as I don't understand how it works! Later on I will try deleting the printer and re-installing. Many many thanks to you all! Open a web browser, and type in the location bar: That will should connect to cups on your system.
You will see several options tabs at the top. You can click on any of them to see various pieces of information. The Administration tab is where you can display and modify an installed printer, or add a new one.
Jobs will show any active jobs, or jobs that fail. Look there to see if cups is receiving the job, and its status. The printer tab shows your installed printers. To add or modify a printer, you need to provide the root password to cups, it will prompt you for that password when you try to add or modify.
Give that a try. I suspect you have some failed jobs. You can cancel those jobs. Give it a try, let us know how it goes. Post as much information as you can.
Many thanks, I'm really touched by how kind LQO members are. But no clue as to what these mean or how to fix. At first, I managed to get the scanner function to work, but the printer would not. The printer still works fine with an old Windows laptop.
Ok, the output you've shared here shows an error message towards the end of the log. Very many thanks again, I can't express how grateful I am!
I now have an insight into how this system might work. I went through the installation steps as prescribed, and added the printer, although I did not uninstall anything from previously.
On trying to print, I got this error message about glyphs on the font, which has appeared before: Does printing a CUPS test page result in a successful print? Yes, this time it did print a test page, and I got this message: Major progress, but how do I find the right driver?! I'm not sure that I believe that message especially if test page rendered ok.
Nevertheless, let's take a look at the current PPD which will provide driver information for the printer With respect to the installed ghostscript interpreter, check if all dependencies are satisfied perhaps.
Last edited by ferrari; at The last line reads: I haven't tried printing to file, as I'm afraid I don't know how to do that? Looking at the available drivers, I had installed the latest version from Canon, of three, but the spec doesn't say which Ubuntu version it is compatible with. I wonder if there is mileage in deleting the printer and starting over again?
And thank you yet again for all your trouble, I know how difficult it is trying to sort problems at a distance, with a machine that won't play, and a very ignorant operator! BB code is On. All times are GMT The time now is Open Source Consulting Domain Registration.
