Can't print with Canon printer

Postby lxmt on Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:15 pm

Hi,

I've a problem printing on Linux Mint 14 with the Canon MF8330 cdn. Mint tells me it sends a job to the printer and that the jobs finishes succesfully, but nothing is printed. I've searched online for several solutions, but nothing seems to work. This is what i did sofar:

1. Convert Canon drivers version 2.5 64bit to deb with alien:
a. sudo alien -s cndrvcups-common-2.50-1.x86-64.rpm
b. sudo alien -s cndrvcups-ufr2-uk-2.50-1.x86-64.rpm

2. Create symlinks
a. sudo ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib64
b. sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib /usr/local/lib64

3. Install drivers
a. sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common...
b. sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-ufr2-uk...

4. Add code to /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.cupsd
a. /usr/lib64/cups/backend/cnusb Uxr,
b. /usr/lib64/cups/filter/pstoufr2cpca Uxr,

5. Restart cups with sudo service cups restart

I use an usb cabel to connect the printer. The connection looks like this: usb://Canon/MF8300%20Series?serial=XXXX ... nterface=1.

I do'nt get any errors but nothing is printed. Any help appreciated.

Regards,
A lxmint user who would like to print.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I was having trouble myself, but these instructions seemed to do it for me:

The difference I note is step 6, which installs two libs that I don't see in your steps.

Hope this helps.

Tnx,

That did the trick. Although I wasn't expecting to install 32-bit libraries to get 64-bit drivers to work.. But the most important thing is, I can print now.
