Same Problem with Konica Minolta Magicolor 1600W.
The printer shows up as a printer device. But this when I inspect, the printer properties says its using some generic text print driver which has never printed a page.

Canon MG2240 needs a Canon printer driver

Postby pdc_2 on Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:51 pm

Hi there UYS88;

You have a Canon MG2240 and Canon supply linux drivers for their printers; I find that the Canon Asia website is very good for drivers;

so if I go here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/cont ... 66201.html I have selected the Debian package (as Mint uses ubuntu .....that uses debian packaging.......)

it comes down as cnijfilter-mg2200series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz

if I suggest some commands to copy and paste into a terminal: terminal is found about 4 up from the MENU sign at the bottom left;

......to paste into a terminal, I suggest using the top line of the terminal............edit........paste as the shortcut is ShiftControlV and therfore you need 3 fingers at once!

.......so if you download the package to your Downloads directory ......

cd Downloads
.....hit ENTER key after each paste ............

tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mg2200series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz


cd cnijfilter-mg2200series-3.80-1-deb


./install.sh


that should install the printer driver .........

Your MG2240 also has a scanner function: Canon provide ScanGearMP to run that

if you download the scanner printer from here

http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/cont ... 69701.html

it comes down as scangearmp-mg2200series-2.00-1-deb.tar.gz

....... if you CLOSE your terminal; and open it again ...........

if you copy and paste

cd Downloads


tar -zxvf scangearmp-mg2200series-2.00-1-deb.tar.gz


cd scangearmp-mg2200series-2.00-1-deb


./install.sh


........and then to run it ............

scangearmp


.........to use regularly, create a launcher .........right-click on bottom bar; ADD to PANEL

.......as in attached thumbnail:

NAME is whatever you wish

COMMAND needs to be what you typed above ie scangearmp

my apologies for not answering earlier; ....I usually subscribe to a thread.......and the subscribe mechanism does not seem to have worked.....

libtiff4


I see by the miracles of Mint I already have this installed: if you open Package Manager: from your Menu button: find using the Search option if needed;

I include the thumbnail from Synaptic showing mine is already installed; type libtiff4; click when it gets offered; right-click to install and use the APPLY button the top line to make it happen!
