Re: Canon TS3122 - how do i get this set up wirelessly

I think my sense was that by pressing the nominated buttons: that made the printer be able to "talk to the router": eg on some older printers, Canon provided this https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/pixma_printer_wireless_connection_setup/mg5540_printer_wireless_connection_setup/ googl...

HP Color Laserjet Pro M277dw

I'm just going to comment on which version of hplip is needed: HP says it should be at least 3.15.4

and you did install the plug-in?

If you run

Code: Select all

hp-check
it should tell you if it is unhappy; if missing some packages

Re: Canon TS3122 - how do i get this set up wirelessly

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSYyFIhBl5k so if you have a wireless router; you need to "do its protections" so it can talk to the printer; this video clip may give you the idea; once the printer and router are talking to each other nicely; then if you go to the PRINTERS folder; (that is inside th...

Re: Adding a network printer

so if you do

Code: Select all

hp-setup
in the terminal; that should get hplip to get the plug-in and install it; so the device can start working

maybe you see how things are after that;

thanks Johannes; glad it worked; .. now you know where to find what you need (Debian has seemingly all obscure files on tap!!)

good you got the cancelled job cleared; I was suggesting you go on and run the diagnostic log for it to list the problems you could install the Canon driver and see if it works; get it from the prior link and do cd Downlods tar -zxvf cnijfilter-ix6800series-4.10-1-deb.tar.gz cd cnijfilter-ix6800seri...

I wonder will the system tolerate having libpng12 and libpng16 at the same time ..
