Yeah.....seems to be a conflict with openprinting saying the guten does work and guten saying no way. Confusing.....but maybe it unofficially works. I just remember that lsb was needed for an old Canon (like many old USB printers). Not saying you're wrong Brian.....just worth a try. :wink:

This doesn't work, filter is missing. Guess its new printer time :(

Well, this is interesting. I downloaded the 5.2.7 (Deb for LSB 3.2) package linked at openprinting and extracted to see what it has.

Guess what? It does indeed have support for the Canon PIXMA-iP2200. In fact here is the first lines in the PPD for the printer.

Obviously, guten decide to withdraw support at some point. Not saying that package will install and work (or even correctly install). That would take some testing.

Not a bad idea if you have an hour or two; you never know. I tried it yesterday using packages from

snapshot.debian.org

cups-driver-gutenprint will eventually install but it needs dependencies from snapshot. libtasn1, libgcrypt1 and libgnutls26 are amongst them. I never got round to getting everything to work because, IIRC, I ran out of puff. I also thought the Gutenprint developers were probably right in their judgement and I could use the time for better things.

If you get this working, in a way that's not overly complicated, I would be very interested.

I agree with Brian. This is a very old package from back around 2008 and guten took it off their support list for a reason(s) unknown.

As I said earlier, I did download the x64 package. I just tried simple double-click on the downloaded .deb file and brought up the debian installer. The install on my test system seems to go OK with all dependencies installed. I then went to Printers and tried an Add+. Using the Generic CUPS-BFR method I looked to see if it is now listed under Canon printers. Yep, it's there, listed as PIXMA ip2200 with these two Drivers:

Canon PIXMA iP2200 - CUPS+Gutenprint(Openprinting LSB 3.2)v5.2.7 Simplified [en](recommended)
Canon PIXMA iP2200 - CUPS+Gutenprint(Openprinting LSB 3.2)v5.2.7 [en]

Now this is a pretty much pure Mint 19.1 Cinnamon x64 test system, where I do crazy things....when necessary. :lol: I do use Timeshift to restore back, so I have a safe out if any problems were to have happened.

I obviously can't go any further, as I don't have the real printer to compete an install, much less test. It's a do-at-your-own-risk. I would follow my lead and set a restore point with Timeshift before you try, that is, if you decide to try.

Not a chance of my pursuing this further. The iP2200 started life as a Linux unfriendly printer. It ends its life in the same way. Inexpensive printers which fit a modern Mint distribution are available. Try HP. You will be happier.

I am all for keeping old hardware going. We are on your side; Canon isn't.

Sent an email to PC world on what they would recommend. Bye bye IP2200, it was a very good printer
