How to get PPD file for CANON PIXMA IP1300?

Postby shadow29warrior » Fri Sep 08, 2017 3:03 pm

Hi all,
I have an old printer Cannon Pixma ip1300. I wish to operate it in my linux mint "Sonya".
I has been really frustrating to restart into windows just to print some files. I am currently using turboprint software which works really great but unfortunately it is on a 30 days trail period.
I was hoping if you guys could help me get the ppd file or an alternative option so I could operate my printer.
Thanks

Unfortunately your device is no longer supported under the selected operating system.

I know that the model is not supported. But people have somehow managed to make the ppd file to use it eventually. I mean there is a ppd file generated for my device after installing turboprint but as soon as I uninstall turboprint, the ppd does not work. It has some kind of dependency on the software. I was hoping for a solution to work around that.

I am not sure, but if you are lucky the ip1300 may be the same (instruction set) as my ip1600.
If so then take a look at my recent post under the "Printers and Scanners" section of the forum, in the topic "Installing Canon Pixma Printers".
if the moderators have allowed it to be publish, my notes may help you???

(apologies - I have only just joined the forum and I am not sure if/how to add a link to another item yet!)
