After all the hooking and cooking, my IP1000 is working fine. But I want to desable color printing. Can anyone tell me how can I turn color printing off?
I just noted that u need "sudo" in front of the "ln -s" command in point 6
Thanks for the note. I have corrected the error.
Another solution is to use the Turboprint drivers. I've got them working well with my IP4000.
They're not free or Open Source, but they do support high-quality colour, duplex printing and CD printing.
If you're happy with low quality output, you can use the free version. It's limited to 300dpi, but duplex printing still works.
If you want the higher quality, it costs €30/US$40.
Well, I installed TurboPrint drivers as well. These days they have stopped low quality output. Now they are printing their logo on the doc. So this is not a good solution.
For now I think no option for grayscale only printing is available in the cups printer properties. So you can't turn off color printing permanently. Though you can try turning it off each time you print something through the application you are using, if this option is available in the specific application (e.g. firefox, openoffice, gimp).
thanks for this really easy understandable howto.
i ve mad all this steps and i got no error messages at any time.
but when i want to print nothings happens...
the Job gets the status "job-printing" and themes to be sucessfull...
but at my printer isnt any test-print
the cups log-files tell me "Broken pipe" and thats very often...
has anyone an idea?
thanks und bye,
PS: sorry for my bad english...
I've just done a fresh Ubuntu install and update and found these great instructions for getting my iP 4000 up and running. They have worked flawlessly, but I'm wondering if anyone has been able to get the printer to pull paper from the cassette underneath rather than the paper feeder on top of the unit.
When I run
bjcups -P PIXUS-iP4100-Ver.2.50
lpr: error - unable to access "PIXUS-iP4100-Ver.2.50" - No such file or directory
And yes, the name of the printer is correct. When I run
device for PIXUS-iP4100-Ver.2.50: usb://Canon/iP4000
Has anyone else gotten the bjcup application working?
Great tutorial paris_m_, thanks a lot~
