    Re: Cups seems broken under 12.04 LTS...

    The update from proposed did not solve my problem. This is my printers.conf file. Are the lines like "Reason cups-ipp-missing-printer-state-reasons" O.K.? This appears with red sign if I click Printers->propertises->ink/tonel level.

    I haven't been able to find any bug reports on launchpad, so I posted one myself.

    Hello ratcheer,

    please can you explain in detail what you did?
    For example what you exactly installed and what orders you used?

    I just understand I solved the problem

    Sry but I am kind of a newbie but I need to print

    Post Re: Cups seems broken under 12.04 LTS...

    @Snoopy_5_1, two of the three things I did were specific for Canon printers.

    First, I downloaded and installed package cups-bjnp from Launchpad. I do not know exactly what it does, but it did give me network detection of my Canon MP620 printer.

    https://launchpad.net/~robbiew/+archive/cups-bjnp

    However, the detection did not seem to know the printer's IP address. So, I followed some instructions I found in the CUPS documentation:

    Configuring the IP Address

    When you first install a network printer or print server on your LAN, you need to set the Internet Protocol ("IP") address. Most higher-end "workgroup" printers allow you to set the address through the printer control panel. However, if you have many printers you will want to assign the addresses remotely - this makes administration a bit easier and avoids assigning duplicate addresses accidentally.
    To setup your printer or print server for remote address assignment, you'll need the Ethernet Media Access Control ("MAC") address, also sometimes called a node address, and the IP address you want to use for the device. The Ethernet MAC address can often be found on the printer test page or bottom of the print server.

    Configuring the IP Address Using DHCP

    The DHCP protocol is the usual way of setting the IP address of a printer on a managed network. Using the standard dhcpd(8) program supplied with UNIX you simply need to add a line to the /etc/dhcpd.conf file:

    host hostname
    { hardware ethernet mac-address;
    fixed-address ip-address;
    }

    Make sure that the hostname you use is also listed in the /etc/hosts file or is registered with your DNS server.
    Then, I added the printer in CUPS, selected the offered CUPS+Gutenprint driver, tested it, and it worked.

    But, I did not really care for that Gutenprint driver. So, after a lot of digging, I found this PPA and added it:

    https://launchpad.net/~michael-gruz/+archive/canon-trunk

    Then, I installed the driver from that PPA for my printer, added the printer again, and selected that driver. I tested it, and it also worked. So now I have not one, but two instances of the same printer installed and working, each using a different driver.

    I hope this helps you. Good luck,

    Hy Ratcheer thanks for you answer.
    So I have an Canon printer That is the good news *g*
    But it is not an Network printer. Its attached via usb.
    So do I need to install cups-bjnp?

    So I think I will test the ppa you found for my printer?

    I think you should not need the bjnp component for a USB-connected printer. I don't see why you would, anyway.

    Re: Cups seems broken under 12.04 LTS...

    I've got a Pixma 610 that stopped working under Ubuntu 12.4.
    It has worked in every previous release back to 9.10.

    Looking in /var/log/cups/error_log I see this:
    D [30/May/2012:19:45:42 -0400] [Job 386] MP610_series: error while loading shared libraries: libpopt.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    The failure symptoms are very similar to other ones mentioned on this thread: the job appears to spool correctly, but then nothing happens, and eventually the job is killed as "printer unresponsive".

    I have force-loaded the libpopt0 package, that isn't the problem. Instead, I suspect that part of the printer chain-of-filters is now looking for libpopt in the wrong place.

    Is this driver install worth a try?

    (It's a USB-connected printer, not network.)

    And here's the culprit:

    Code:
    $ cd /usr/lib/cups/filter
    $ ldd pstocanonij | grep popt
    	libpopt.so.0 => not found
    but...
    Code:
    $ ls /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/*popt*
    /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpopt.so.0  /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpopt.so.0.0.0
    but...
    pstocanonij is a 32-bit executable! So, question now is: do I
    (a) look for a 64-bit pstocanonij, or
    (b) find a 32-bit libpopt?

    I don't know, but I doubt that Ubuntu will ever carry a set of Canon printer drivers. At least not for the ones Canon does not support on Linux, which includes my MP620.

    What printer do you have? What Ubuntu release? 32 or 64 bit?
