    Smile Re: Canon all-in-one laser printers

    So, after I read all thread and tried different suggested solutions (thank you, guys!) I finally managed to make my Canon I-Sensys MF4140 to work in my Ubuntu 12.04 64-Bit version.

    My steps:

    1. Downloaded the UFR II Printer Driver for Linux Version 2.50 from Canon U.S.A.
    2. Extracted from archive and converted the 64-Bit RPM drivers to DEB:
    Code:
    sudo alien cndrvcups-ufr2-us-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm --scripts
    sudo alien cndrvcups-common-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm --scripts
    3. Renamed existing '/usr/lib64' to '/usr/lib64.old'
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/lib64 /usr/lib64.old
    4. Created the symbolic link '/usr/lib64' to '/usr/lib':
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib64
    5. Installed dependencies (I do not know if I realy needed all of them ):
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 ia32-libs lib32z1
    6. Installed the .deb packages:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-common_2.50-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i cndrvcups-ufr2-us_2.50-2_amd64.deb
    7. Plugged the printer and it worked!
    (I printed a test page and a page from a PDF document).

    Terminal is telling me, "sudo: alien: command not found".

    You need to install alien.
    I tried Unity. I tried GNOME 3. I did not like neither of them. Now running Ubuntu 12.04 in Fallback mode.

    I have now installed alien and downloaded the drivers, but I need some clarification on step 2.

    Navigate to the folder where you downloaded drivers and run those two commands, that's all. You should get two new files with *.deb extension.

    Re: Canon all-in-one laser printers

    so vincegata is telling you it is likely you downloaded the UFR driver.......; if that is what you downloaded...; into the Downloads directory;

    so you should open the terminal and copy and paste

    cd Downloads
    ...hit enter key each time..

    then do as per previous posts

    Terminal is telling me, File "cndrvcups-ufr2-us-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm" not found. I looked and the drivers are in fact in the Downloads directory, so i must be doing something wrong.

    Re: Canon all-in-one laser printers

    so you have typed cd Downloads and hit enter and are in the Downloads directory ............

    if you enter the command

    ls
    that lists the contents of the directory

    what you have probably got is

    Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN.tar.gz

    so you need a little work on it ........

    tar -zxvf Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN.tar.gz
    and that creates a directory called Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN

    so your next command is

    cd Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN/64-bit_Driver/RPM
    and if you now type

    ls
    that lists the contents of the directory and it should then be

    cndrvcups-common-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm cndrvcups-ufr2-uk-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm

    .......so that should let you install the common driver first (cndrvcups-common-2.50) and then the specific UFR driver (cndrvcups-ufr2-uk-2.50) as per the instructions in the earlier post

    Sexy time! Thank you for this post!
    When Ubuntu moves into The Cloud, I'll be moving out of Ubuntu. The Cloud means loss of control, and control is why I switched to Linux in the first place.

    Drivers for Canon MF4880 ?

    Searched through this thread and didn't find specific mention of my printer, a Canon MF4880dw. Canon claims that it does not support this printer on Linux. However, I did find the drivers cndrvcups-ufr2-us_2.50-1_i386 and cndrvcups-common_2.50-1_i386 on the Canon website (listed under the MF4690 printer). Was wondering if anyone has had success using these or other drivers with this printer. Currently running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 32-bit.

    Thank you for any assistance. And thanks also to those who have started and posted to the thread - looks like a wealth of valuable information.
