I had canon ir3230 working absolutely fine in linux 17.
when i upgraded to linux 19 the printer stopped working.
two days of trial and error and nothing worked.
finally i did these steps and i don't know at which point the problem got solved.
i am writing this method for canon ir3230.
you may modify it for your own printer
i am not an expert linux . so i wont be able to give details . ill do my best.
my steps are copy pasted from various forums
remove cups and reinstall cups.
i tried removing cups and then tried reinstalling cups . i seem to have broken few packages so i did this.
this is the command
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gtkorphan
Continue by running:
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade
This is used to double-check that you have all the updates.
To clear out the broken packages use the command:
sudo aptitude -f
go to synaptic edit click fix broken packages
now install cups
