Did you follow all of these instructions? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters/CanonPrinters/CanonPixmaIP2200

Does libtiff.so.3 link to libtiff.so.4, libpng.so.3 link to libpng.so and libxml2.so.2 link to libxml.so.1?

I had a Canon ip1600 and those instructions worked for me. Canon do not provide much support for Linux and I've since got an HP printer which works without any problems.

Same problem as above. Printer worked, sorta, with hardy. Now, it's dead and I can't find libtiff.so.4 anywhere, can anyone?
Can I load hardy repositories in intrepid? (I doubt it)

The libtiff4 package should be available in Intrepid. Make sure that package is installed, there should be a libtiff.so.4 in /usr/lib.

Allright, I did find libtiff.so.4 in it's right place...it's libtiff.so.3 that I can't find. I'd rather not actually, as installing that series of old packages caused me no end of broken packages and unresolved dependencies.....

So, with the help of my friends, I have just learned (undertood the "ln" command) to create a link called libtiff.so.3 that points to the latest libtiff library. I created links for the other libraries needed. Now my printer works again!

Awesome. I'm guessing that's snigapoe's problem too, but haven't heard from them again...
