    Re: Canon Pixma mp640 wireless

    I downloaded the package from
    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100236602.html
    untar the package using
    Code:
    tar xvf cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-1-i386-deb.tar.gz
    cd into the packages directory
    Code:
     cd cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-1-i386-deb/packages/
    Then using videbcontrol remove all the dependencies from both deb files by deleting everything after
    Code:
    Depends:
    make sure you have similar packages installed though I am pretty sure everything will be installed on a default Ubuntu install.
    then install the modified packages using
    Code:
     sudo dpkg -i  sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-common_3.20-1_i386.modfied.deb cnijfilter-mp640series_3.20-1_i386.modfied.deb
    you may have to clean up some files with incorrect permissions check your /var/log/cups/error_log change any file reported with incorrect permissions to match other files in the folder. In particular change user from your user to root using
    Code:
    chown root:root *file*
    You may then be able to install your printer using the gui or web interface http://localhost:631
    However I could not so I used
    Code:
    cnijnetprn --search auto
    sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p canon640 -m canonmp640.ppd -v cnijnet:/00-1E-8F-B8-DA-33
    replace the cnijnet... with the output of cnijnetprn
    I then found more files with incorrect permissions looking at printers in the web interface, fix them with the steps above and again restart cups and resume the printer.

    I hope that helps someone sorry it is not all that straight forward I did not exactly document the steps I took so I someone wants to clean up this guide and repost that would help more people. Now if only canon would update their packages to install more easily.

    Just like you said:

    1. Install some prerequisite packages, actually I installed libxml2 instead of libxml1.
      Code:
      sudo apt-get install libxml2 libglade0 libpng3 libtiff4
    2. Unpack the downloaded file
    3. Run the install script
      Code:
      cd cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-x-i386-deb
      sudo ./install.sh


    How simple can it be! This works for me and during installation it even finds the printer on the network.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi, Newbie to Ubuntu. Quite versed in Windows, but its too much of a memory hog. Ubuntu is working great, just cannot install my Canon MP640. Followed these steps, and it still is not seeing it. It is wireless. Could you walk me through what I need to do next? Thanks.

    This is an old thread, but here goes.

    If you've already gone to the printer setup window/page, and clicked new, and selected network and the cji-whateverissays hasn't shown up then do this:
    Open the file manager/home folder, go to the folder where you unzipped the package(most likely downloads), you should see a folder with the package name, click on it. You should see three icons, packages, source and install. Click on the packages and you should see four deb files, two common and two with the printer name. first select the common deb for the type of system you're using, 32-bit or 64-bit(i386 is 32-bit, and amd_64 is 64-bit).Clicking on it should open the software center and ask you to install(It might open slowly)So install it. When it is installed go back to folder and click on the deb file for the printer(same as before with the type you're using, and do the same as opening the software center.
    Now it has been installed go to the print page again and select new and click network(it might take a minute for it to show up.
    When it shows up select the cji-blah-blah and proceed from there.
