Ubuntu: Installing Canon ip2600 printer drivers on ubuntu 12.10



Question:

I followed instructions from serveral pages (e.g. here) to install Canon ip2600 printer drivers that were discussed for Ubuntu 12.04 or earlier as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip2600series

After that, the printer is listed and a printer properties window can be open. Trying to print anything fails with a message "Processing - Waiting for printer to become available." next to printer state.

Does anybody know how to get the printer to work? I am running Ubuntu 12.10 on 64 bit.


Solution:1

After updating to Ubuntu 13.04 (64-bit), I got my Canon ip2600 printer to work with the canon-trunk repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-trunk  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip2600series  

Before that, I also tried the Gutenprint driver, which installed fine, but still no reaction from the printer.


Solution:2

I just installed Ubuntu on my ThinkPad X61 and Acer Aspire circa 2010; tried many wats but the following worked:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-stable  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip2600series
