CANON MP150 hangs while printing after recent updates

Postby DumbCluck on Sun Jul 01, 2012 9:22 pm

Hi
My MP150 was working fine until I recently let Mint 13 mate 64 bit update. Now it starts to print
but only about 3 or 4 lines then it simply stops, no alarms bells or whistles. just stops, page half
fed into the printer.
I have to reboot to clear the printer of the unfinished page.
Any ideas how to get it working? Is there a good procedure to follow?

Not sure if it's the same thing, but I can print only one document (page?) on my HP Laserjet 5L. Subsequent docs just sit in the queue. I also have to reboot to get queued docs to print, and they print even before I login to Mint. Seems like there are definitely printing issues in Mint 13/Mate 64.

There are upstream issues with printing. Most of the bugs seem related to network printing but I am also having issues printing to my Canon ip4200 usb.
Yesterday I thought I had it cracked with the beta cups driver from a ppa, but today it wouldn't print again - just hung in queue.

I downloaded turboprint and it prints fine so hopefully they will fix it before the 30 day trial is up.

I've got exactly the same problem with Canon IP4700. :| going to download turboprint also and see if it works for me.

The latest is that they seem to be sending a usb reset after the document and the canon printers don't like this, they have released a fix. So just a matter of them deploying it.

I've got a Canon IP4500 and it takes forever to start printing, and if I have several jobs to print, it doesn't print any of them. I've been fiddling with it for an hour now, it only prints if I unplug/plug in the power cable and even then it prints only one page. When I open the printer dialog and press the stop button, nothing happens. I tried with the solution posted here (adding the PPA fix) and nothing has changed. My system is LM13 CInnamon.

I love Linux, but why does everything about it have to be uphill?

Just installed MInt 13. My Canon Pixma MP170 either did not print or printed a few lines only.

Tried "till-kamppeter/ppa" as suggested by Squeezy (7 Aug). Printer now appears to be working as it should.

Thanks.

It also works for PIXMA IP4200

I had CUPS installed, and since I installed LM my printer Canon PIXMA IP4200 didn't work, it was recognized, and installed correctly, but at the moment of sending any page to print, the printer was like "stucked" and it blinked until I had to disconnect it from the electricity.
Now, adding the PPA and the update&&upgrade it finally started printing again!
thanks a lot!
:)

CORRECTION: After printing a couple of test pages, it went back to having the same problem... it keeps hanging and blinking. All jobs that I send weight 0Kb.. it stays like loading the document. :(

Where did you see that?
Where can I find fixed drivers?

Oh, and which package in https://launchpad.net/~till-kamppeter/+archive/ppa
solved the problem?
