Re: Sane cannot find my Canon Pixma TS5150

Hi there Bjorn up there in Trondheim; sorry to hear of your issues; it must be very frustrating; very irritating; Mint comes from Ubuntu; Ubuntu is noted for fast paced development; they had several major changes of things in the last couple of years; lots of changes; they wanted to have a unitary O...

Re: [Solved?] Linux Mint 19 and Canon MF244dw

so this seems curious; 2 separate installs of Mint 19; on the first one, the 244 did not work; on the second install, it did;

and both were the most recent 3.6 UFR driver; were both 64bit installs, of the same DE? .. ie mate or cinnamon?

Laser Jet 1320n

you are selecting a 1320 driver; underneath that is a 1320n, and you say that is what your machine is: what selection do you get if you choose that please ? I would go for the simplest hpcups variant; ie 3.17.10 or whatever it is that should mean hplip ..... many of the others are open-source drivers;

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

so as I understand it; to be able to use a printer in linux; in general one needs to: 1) install the drivers 2) register the printer with lpadmin ........ so it knows which ppd file to use when you say "Use the BROWN printer" ... it has already learnt and says to itself; ..... ah, at the beginning, ...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

so I understood this device was the MFC-J 480 DW .. because that is the title of your first post; and 480 appears in that so the command I suggested was sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.1-1 MFC-J480DW .. as you said your device was the 480DW but you seem to have changed that; (I always recomm...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

thanks; sorry you have moved on; for any Mint members reading this; this J480DW is listed as being airprint-compatible (AC); that AC feature came with Ubuntu 17.04 so only joined Mint with this Mint 19 release; so the theory was: AC would mean Mint would auto-configure ....... so no need; (one under...

Hi pcpunk so to use the installer tool, you copy each command below ; paste it into the terminal; hit the ENTER key; and on to the next line (assuming you have already downloaded it, and it is in your Downloads directory, and it is linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.1-1.gz ) cd Downloads gunzip linux-brp...

Re: Linux Mint 19 and Canon MF244dw

I think you need to file this as a bug report to Mint; that should be accepted;

you could also refer it to Ubuntu as a bug report; as Mint comes from Ubuntu; but they may feel a specific tweak of Mint is the problem ............

Re: CUPS Configuration / What is my Printer URI

sometimes I really need to spell stuff out; so it is clear if I am understanding things correctly; so my assumption is the Canon in connected to a CentOS computer; as it sees the Canon as direct cnusb:/dev/usb/lp0 and it also reports it as direct usb://Canon/D530/D560?serial=1137H3600986&interface=1...

Re: Linux Mint 19 and Canon MF244dw

so Canon issued that 3.6 driver less than a month ago; we have had folks report various printing issues with Mint 19; where before their machines were fine on Mint 18; sounds like you are very familiar with what to do and you have tried the options; (I see mention of 32bit: is that the system you ru...
