Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi again Brian. Welcome back :D The question I must ask is why did nc 192.168.0.6 9100 … … at least try to print but sending the file to CUPS nc 192.168.0.6 631 … ... did not even try. No output at all? For the greater part of time I try only to ask about something I know a little about – printing a...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Although in normal orientation I have tried with A4 in all trays. It still looked for A3 in the bottom tray. In normal orientation the long edge of A4 corresponds to the short edge of A3. When taking paper from the normal A4 or the A3 tray the length of the edge that leads is the same. In any case, ...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

In normal usage the four trays, counting from the top down are set A4, A4, A4R and A3. No matter which way I put an A4 original on the platen glass it copies correctly. Equally, if the original is A3 I get an A3 copy. As far as print jobs from the computer were concerned even the ‘printer test page’...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

It certainly makes a lot of sense to eliminate one potential source of trouble at a time. Good practice. In the past I have tried A3 in all except the top drawer which is too small for A3, and the bypass; simply because I didn’t think of that one. No matter where the A3 paper was the message on the ...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

I put some pictures, .jpg, on a usb stick to try that. The printer 'saw' that it was there and offered me the option to remove it. However, it did not shew me what was on the stick although I presume that there is a setting somewhere to look at that. Not one I have ever seen though.

Hi Bigal,

do you get the same error messages when you photocopy something?
Hey printerthinker. I just realised that you are new to the forum. Welcome. I hope that you find everyone one here very friendly and helpful. I certainly have over the years.

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

No. Using the copier just as a copier works just fine. Image quality excellent stapling, folding, booklet making etc all spot on. I would set the printer back to factory defaults and start again but I have no idea how. The 'User guide' doesn't cover that.

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi Brian, I cannot express how really grateful I am for all the time you have put into this. If indeed it is a printer setting rather than a driver problem my simple logic dictates that something has had to have changed. I just do not know what. There are no Canon engineers within 150 miles of me th...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

nc 192.168.0.6 9100 < PostScriptFile immediately throws the error. nc 192.168.0.6 631 < PostScriptFile has no response what so ever. I apologise for not telling you this earlier but I have only just thought of it. From top to bottom the four paper drawers are A4 A4 A4R A3 Without exception, every t...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

The URI (the -v option) is socket://192.168.0.6 . I am ashamed to say that goes to shew just how little I know. Running the revised command installed the printer but the original error still persists. As the copier did work okay when using the original driver (Oh why oh why didn’t I keep it) I feel...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

The Timeshift snapshot restoration puts all relevant system files back to their state at the time the snapshot was taken. The ip of the printer (as with all devices on our LAN) is manually set. It is 192.168.0.6. $ lpinfo -v gives network socket://192.168.0.6 $ sudo lpadmin -p c5030 -v 192.168.0.6 -...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi again. I’m afraid Plan B didn’t work either. As you know the machine I am using as our print server has a fresh install of 64 bit 18.3 Cinnamon. As is my usual practice whenever I do an installation I created a manual Timeshift restore point as soon as all the initial updates have been completed....

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi Brian, A little background. Our previous printer was a Canon CLC3200 We used CQue.2.0 to create the queue and that worked without any problems right up to and including Mint 18.3. Then we acquired the C5030I together with a LBP7680Cx laser printer direct from a local firm that closed down. I ran ...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi Brian, Sorry I have been longer than expected in getting back to you. There are time when work just has to intervene! Anyway, I have done a fresh install and am now running 64 bit Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. I still followed your instructions at https://wiki.debian.org/PrinterDriver/Canon/UFR-II#Installa...

Hi Brian, Thank you for PLAN A. That description is brilliant! Would you be offended if I wait, at least until tomorrow, to see if there are any suggestions on the Copytech forum? Quite apart from this printing issue I am not entirely happy with Mint 19.1. I don’t like the GNOME version, and there h...

Re: Cannot install driver for Canon C5030I copier

Hi Brian, To start from the bottom $ sudo apt-get -f install worked okay. The output read 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 26 not to upgrade so no problems there (Thank goodness). I had read apt man page when I ran into the problem and long before I posted (there is no ‘help’ page)....

Re: Found driver for Canon lbp612cdw, how do I install it.

The link that Brian just sent works but look out for the file names. They have been changed - well updated - since that was written. I have used the method (1) and it enabled me to install my printer but I still have some problems. Maybe you will fare better. I hope so.
