Re: Print 11 x 17 inches on Canon ip8720 (Mostly Solved)

well done Jerry; as you have found, if you right-click on each icon for a printer; in the PRINTERS folder; you can see the section called MAKE & MODEL and that tells us ............ what the driver is. So Mint offers Gutenprint drivers; http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/ which are open source driver...

Re: Print 11 x 17 inches on Canon ip8720

I understood these types of values (paper size) were stored in the ppd files In linux, the installed ppds are in /etc/cups/ppd. The database is in /usr/share/ppd. For more information, try 'locate ppd' in a terminal; so if I look in the database for the ppd for our MG3100, the paper size section see...

Re: Brother HL-5470DW hiccups between pages

well done; if you use the Brother driver, I wondered if it would be better the airprint driver should be called driverless or something similar; and the Brother driver will be different: you just need to be clear which is which .... you seem a bit of a power user so a bit of extra memory may help; a...

Re: Brother HL-5470DW hiccups between pages

so I am guessing this is an "airprint config": your printer is airprint-compatible (A-C); that came with Mint 19; so with A-C it should auto-config; if you go to the icon for your printer, which should be in the PRINTERS folder; and right-click on it; look for MAKE & MODEL; drag the window to the ri...

sorry to hear of your issues; you have been on the Mint forums for 8 years; it all must be very frustrating and annoying for you; a thing called airprint support arrived with Mint 19: if the printer one buys has that airprint support built in; then Mint would set it up automatically for you; sadly t...
