    Unhappy canon MX320 driver issues

    I've recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit, and am having trouble getting the canon MX320 drivers working. The drivers I have downloaded for the printer were stored in a tar.gz file, inside there were two .deb files, however they are for a 32-bit system and won't install. Therefore I'm wondering if anyone has a 64-bit version or an alternative way to get my printer working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :edit:
    I have recently fixed the problem I was having with the driver installation. For those of you who are in the same boat as I was in use the "sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture (file name)" command to force installation of the 32 bit drivers.

    That did the trick for me on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit!
    Simply run in terminal from the folder where you placed the 2 packages :

    Code:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ./cnijfilter-common_3.10-1_i386.deb
    and then :

    Code:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ./cnijfilter-mx320series_3.10-1_i386.deb

    motherboard : gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H

    Re: canon MX320 driver issues --> not quite functional on amd64

    The Canon drivers don't install on my amd64 lucid lynx either.

    Default gdebi + gtk-gdebi do *not* have (--force-architecture) as an option, as manu7irl says. Perhaps there's a newer version.

    It's possible to open the .gz's with ark & copy individual .so, .ini, and .ppd files to prescribed locations.

    Foomatic-configure accepts the PPD file (canonmx320.ppd). Desktop applications can "see" the printer.

    dmesg shows the hardware being detected at USB plug-in-time.

    xsane cannot detect a scanning device (meaning --> no drivers).

    I went to:

    I just tried in my Ubuntu 10.04 amd64 with USB conection and it works for my MX320! But it was easier.
    Just follow the command line instructions given in the first post with the USB cable disconnected. Then, instead of going to the "printers configuration", just connect the USB cable and it should configure automatically

    Re: canon MX320 driver issues

    Getting it to install is one thing, but to get it to actually print something is entirely different. So I installed the drivers, plugged in the printer, and voila it self installs, but when I try and print anything even the test page, it just sits there. *sigh* Any ideas?
