I don't know how I go about installing a driver for a Canon ip3600 printer. I would appreciate it if someone would assist me in this.

Much thanks.

have you tried just connecting it up to see if it works out of the box ? , linux has built in generic drivers that can deal with a wide range of hardware ? and peripherals

just double click it and it will prompt you for your password and self install. just to clarify you got the first link the debian(.deb) one and not the .rpm one used by redhat etc

ok extract the file , you have two deb file which you can double click to self install i think you can forget about the other tar file as it seems to be the same as one of the deb files

initially you should have the 1 tar file , when you extract that you should get 2 .deb files and a tar file . double click on the two deb files to install them . the second tar file inside the original one is the source and as far as i can tell its the same as one of the tar files, so you dont need to install it , only install it if it doesnt work( you can install the nested tar by cd to the directory and runing make and then sudo make install )

That isn't what I am getting at all. Just the one folder with those listed inside it.

you must have extracted the sub folder out only ,delete the extracted files

ok go to the original downloaded file and copy it to a new folder eg ~/Desktop/temp, in temp click on the tar and click extract here , you should get three files listed in this pic

try install the common deb file first then the ip3600series deb file ,

if that doesnt work extract the sub tar file and 'cd' into that directory, you should have the files you had originally when you extracted the first time and type make , then sudo make install , then try the two debs again

i'm not quite with you on the 'cd' bit?

As an edit now I've looked, where will I find the sub tar file?

i'm not quite with you on the 'cd' bit?

in the terminal , its a command to change directory , eg if i wanted to change to my music folder , id type cd /home/dill/Music or cd ~/Music . ~/ is a shortcut for /home/username . you can use to command ls to list whats in your current directory , and cd .. will take you back a directory

Right. So what would I type in to find the sub tar file?

Sorry if I appear thick, but I am new at this lot.

no it can be confusing i understand, ok you downloaded the file frm the website . this was in a tar format its similar to a rar or a zip file, in this tar file there was two deb files and another tar file which must also be extracted, you can click on it and click extract here.

where have you extracted it to ?, like whats the path to the file, if it was on your desktop the path would be ~/Desktop

SteveFJ

Can you please confirm that it is the one for debian that I should be downloading from Canon.

As an edit, if so then these are the three files I now have on my desktop:

cinjfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb
cinjfilter-ip3600series_3.00-1_i386.deb
cinjfilter-common_3.00-1.tar.gz

I assume the sub file is the tar.gz?

If this is correct then I need to know what I need to key in to the terminal.

Much thanks.

yea they are the three files , try double click cinjfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb first , then double click this cinjfilter-ip3600series_3.00-1_i386.deb. if that doesnt work extract the cinjfilter-common_3.00-1.tar.gz file to your desktop. click on it and click extract here. it should be in its own folder now

you should have these four items on your desktop now, the red one being the newly extracted folder

cinjfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb
cinjfilter-ip3600series_3.00-1_i386.deb
cinjfilter-common_3.00-1.tar.gz
cinjfilter-common_3.00

in a terminal type
cd ~/Desktop/cinjfilter-common_3.00
make
sudo make install

While I am thankful to DillByrne for the help given here, I afraid I am having to bump this topic as the problem hasn't been resolved.

Any further help here to solve this would be most appreciated.

Much thanks.
