cnijlgmon2 is showing up (SOLVED)

Post by Prsman » Wed Dec 04, 2019 7:26 pm

Yesterday and today, my conky is showing this process cnijlgmon2 is running and using 50% of my cpu. I am not printing anything at the time.
So I went through the printer settings, print queue. Nothing strange. Then I got a notification of a test page to be printed, but nothing got printed.
Then the process went away. Searched the internet and found something about a new driver. Is this a windows notification about a new driver?
Is my printer possessed? Thanks. Opps, forgot Canon MX-532 printer/scanner/fax.

(EDIT) I am running the latest linux driver for this printer. I am connected by usb. It has a wifi port, which is active. Hacked?

Part of the Canon cnijfilter software you have installed. Nothing to worry about.

There was a reason this is showing up. The printer would not print, even a test page. I had to delete the printer and re-install.
Dont know why, but the printer works now, Solved.
