View Full Version : [ubuntu] Canon IR1610 Help request

August 15th, 2009, 11:27 AM
I have a great problem with Canon image runner 1610 printer
it works with windows perfectly
but with Ubuntu or Xubuntu
I have got the pdd driver file and successfully installed
but while printing any thing it just gives me non sense codes in the first page and then keep rolling papers until the drawer become empty

I have tried so many solutions like setupm application
adding several ppd files or searching Internet for the suitable driver
or even contacting with canon support

please help me it's a business issue

I'm sorry if you lost your job!
Recently, a pair of weeks, I haved this same problem, I could not find the iR1610 driver, I was so tired of looking for, but on my last atempt, I was looking in http://www.openprinting.org/printers and it doesn't appear iR1610 but iR1023, so I tried whit this one and what happen?? IT WORKS for iR1610!!!
If you or anyone have this problem just download the .ppd from http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Canon/Canon-imageRunner_1023 file and install your iR1610! :P

Best regards!
