That printer purportedly works with turboprint. (http://freshmeat.net/projects/turboprint/)

Thanks for that, but not prepared to spend $30 for it.

This page (http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/showproduct.php?product=2172&cat=myprod) seems to suggest that it also works with the s200 drivers. Have a look here. (http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/)

Here's what the Open Printing Database has to say:

Tried to install as per info found.
but this is what the trouble shooter says:
Page 1 (Choose printer):
{'cups_dest': <cups.Dest object at 0x9ce1420>,
'cups_instance': None,
'cups_queue': 'i350',
'cups_queue_listed': True}
Page 2 (Check printer sanity):
{'cups_device_uri_scheme': u'usb',
'cups_printer_dict': {'device-uri': u'usb://Canon/i350',
'printer-info': u'',
'printer-is-shared': False,
'printer-location': u'frances-laptop',
'printer-make-and-model': u'Canon S200 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.2 Simplified',
'printer-state': 3,
'printer-state-message': u'',
'printer-state-reasons': [u'none'],
'printer-type': 2265100,
'printer-uri-supported': u'ipp://localhost:631/printers/i350'},
'is_cups_class': False}
Page 3 (Printer state reasons):
{'printer-state-message': '', 'printer-state-reasons': 'none'}
Page 4 (Print test page):
{'test_page_attempted': True,
'test_page_completions': [(42, u'Job completed.')],
'test_page_job_id': [42],
'test_page_job_status': [(42, 'i350', 'Test Page')],
'test_page_successful': False}
Page 5 (Printer state reasons):
{'printer-state-message': '', 'printer-state-reasons': 'none'}

Thus I am still unable to use it

Has anyone any idea how to make the Canon i350 work with Ubuntu? Then please tell us. ;)

I have tried all the Sxxx Gutenprint drivers (e.g. Canon S200 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.3), since some people have managed to get their i450 and i550 printers working with those drivers. No success for me, though.

Seems a bit harsh to cough up $30 for a commercial driver (http://www.turboprint.info/).

I did a little Googling on it - unfortunately, the Ubuntu Hardware Compatibility List says it is crap...

I did find this - it's a blog post that is a bit old, and it's definitely not the most elegant solution, but I'll leave it up to you to decide if it's worth a try:


I hope it helps...
