Canon MP490 fix in Mint 17 and newer

Post by administrollaattori » Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:42 pm

cnijfilter-common_3.20-1_i386.deb does not install because it requires libtiff4 package. The fix is to rebuild the package, editing DEBIAN/control file, changing libtiff4 to libtiff5 and then rebuild the package. Rebuilding goes like:

1. Rename extracted and edited package like cnijfilter-mp490series_3.20-1-fixed
2. Set the permissions for root

Code: Select all

sudo chown root:root -R cnijfilter-mp490series_3.20-1-fixed_i386
3. Build the package

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -b cnijfilter-mp490series_3.20-1-fixed_i386 cnijfilter-mp490series_3.20-1-fixed_i386.deb
The source package can download from Canon's site. ... 20(32-bit)

Works with 64-bit system also.

Fixed control file.
