SOLVED can not install Canon TS8053 printer

Post by Skalman » Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:06 pm

Hi.
After many tries I gave up to install the Canon TS8053 printer.
Have the drivers dwnloaded from Canon itself.
I'm not experienced with this issue.
Someone who knew how to do?
Thank you

so I would start at the Canon Asia site http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/cont ... 39901.html and click to download and SAVE what will be cnijfilter2-5.40-1-deb.tar.gz

then I would open a terminal and line by line paste in the commands below; hit the ENTER key after each paste ........

Code: Select all

cd Downloads

Code: Select all

tar -zxvf cnijfilter2-5.40-1-deb.tar.gz

Code: Select all

cd cnijfilter2-5.40-1-deb
then one runs the install script; so watch it run as it may ask you questions; have your sudo password handy

Code: Select all

sudo ./install.sh
that should do all for you

glad it is all working for you: enjoy! It looks like a really fine printer you have there;

in a few months, life should get easier on Mint for setting up printers: the release of Mint that follows Ubuntu 18.04 will have the airprint in it, that Ubuntu has had since 17.04 so if you were to have waited till July!!! to connect the printer, likely Mint would have done it automatically; and shown "driverless" as the option https://support.apple.com/en-nz/HT201311

...... essentially all printers released in the last several years all seem to be "airprint-compatible" ...........
