Canon Pixma MP495 Scanning works but Printing gets "Held"

Postby cc313 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 8:49 am

I am using a Toshiba Satellite Laptop. It's about 3 years old. I had zero issues printing and scanning in Mint 13 XFCE. But XFCE's Window manager kept crashing on me (Lost the top menu bar, ability to move windows and minimize, exit, etc.).

So I can get scanning working via "scangearmp" on a command line so I know that the wireless connection is fine. But after installing the printer driver, and setting up the printer, every print job I send gets "held" in the print manager. I try to release it, and it just gets held again.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

can you copy and paste this into a terminal;

and copy and paste the results back here......looking to see what printer drivers are installed......

sudo dpkg -l | grep cnijfilter*


.........I wonder if you downloaded MP495series_printer_driver.tar ?
