The Canon IP6700D is a lovely photo printer and I mainly keep it for that purpose. In line with guidance elsewhere, I carried out the following in the terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-trunk
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip6600dseries
Things seemed to have installed correctly and the printer is recognised by the PC. However, the problem is with the printing itself. I tried to print a document which had some normal text with a number of URLs included (highlighted as normal in blue): the result was only the URLs printed, with no surrounding text. A text pdf all in black came out totally blank. The Linux Mint test print page comes out with some decent colours but some fading in areas (not sure how it should look anyway). I have not yet tried any photo printing, as I don't want to waste consumables. The key issue seems to be the way it handles black text (or black generally?).
Any advice please?
