    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit and it does not print again. I set GUFW to allow the CUPS service to print and I installed apparmor-profiles and I set the usr.sbin.cupsd to enforce this profile. I added port 631 in CUPS. It's not printing. When I viewed the attributes during a print job, it keeps saying that the printer is not connected. I also set the usr.sbin.cupsd profile to complain mode and it still does not print.

    I had this problem when I upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Every time I upgrade to a newer Ubuntu version, printing does not work.

    Can someone help me to figure out how to solve this problem so that I can print?

    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    I am wondering if you have the Canon drivers installed ......

    .... you can test that with

    sudo dpkg -l | grep cnijfilter
    ......if you don't get an answer here .......

    how about go here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100272302.html

    and download MX870 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.30 for Linux (debian Packagearchive) to your Downloads directory ......it comes down as cnijfilter-mx870series-3.30-1-i386-deb.tar.gz

    can I suggest some commands? ..that you can copy and paste into a terminal ...

    cd Downloads
    .hit the Enter key ... each time ..

    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mx870series-3.30-1-i386-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mx870series-3.30-1-i386-deb
    ./install.sh
    for the scanner go here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100273002.html

    and download MX870 series ScanGear MP Ver. 1.50 for Linux (debian Packagearchive)

    that comes in as scangearmp-mx870series-1.50-1-i386-deb.tar.gz

    I re-installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 64 bit Long Term Service and I modified the install.sh file as instructed on the first post. It works. I just printed a page from Google News. This does not work with Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit for some reason. This is solved yet again.

    hi,

    running Linux Mint 14 now, but basically it's Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit.

    I am attempting to install the same way as before. unfortunately it's now telling me I have an unmet libpopt0:i386 dependency. The fixes on the front page didn't solve this. How can I force the architecture for dpkg on this?

    EDIT: ha, nevermind. fixed. I guess I just installed the i386 version after apt asked me if I wanted to and it all worked.

    perhaps you tell us exactly what you did, to help us understand .......

    try ....................

    sudo ./install.sh
    .........after copying and pasting the earlier commands .....................

    well Jake let's establish a few things; you have an MX870 and you want to install the printer driver on Ubuntu 13.04

    the latest version is 3.30 from here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/P..._os&g_os=Linux

    the problem is: there are only 32bit debian packages;

    and you have just installed a 64bit system?

    Correct. Because there is only a 32bit package I followed the "how to" on changing the 32 bit script to work with a 64 bit system.

    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    OK;

    this has become a huge thread;

    ...........I think it is a waste of time editing the script; .....that is diverting you away from what you need to do;

    as you can simply install the two debian packages

    you need to install the COMMON package first and then the MX870 package

    ......the bigger issue with installing 32bit packages on a 64bit system: is that the packages look for /usr/lib instead of what your system has which is /usr/lib64

    ......so one can issue a series of what are called symbolic links ..to tell the system the correct place to look

    ..it seems best to set those up: before installing the driver;

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib64
    and

    sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib /usr/local/lib64
    should be good

    if I suggest some commands to install the two packages .....????

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mx870series-3.30-1-i386-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mx870series-3.30-1-i386-deb/packages
    if you then issue the command

    ls
    ........it asks the system to list what is in that directory ....it should be cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb and cnijfilter-mx870series_3.30-1_i386.deb

    .........if so, then install with

    sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb
    and then

    sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-mx870series_3.30-1_i386.deb
    .........that should install the driver; you can check with

    sudo dpkg -l | grep cnijfilter
