    I asked you how to disable Color printing and I could not understand your solution. Can anyone help me with a specific solution?

    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).

    Re: HOWTO: Canon PIXMA IP4000 drivers

    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

    I get

    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

    /usr/bin/lpstat -v

    I get

    device for PIXUS-iP4100-Ver.2.50: usb://Canon/iP4000

    Has anyone else gotten the bjcup application working?
