    Re: printing with Canon Pixma MP560

    I had real trouble setting up this printer with 64bit Mint 10rc. Eventually it worked, however. I have posted the process in my blog.

    and download the file.

    Use Archive manager to extract the file and then look inside the directory it created. There should be a "packages" directory with 2 .deb files.

    You can use dpkg to install the files (install the common file first) and if you're on a 64-bit system use the force option to make it work (that's why I had to use dpkg in the first place).

    So you issue:

    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-common_3.20-1_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-mp560series_3.20-1_i386.deb

    Then use the Printer configuration tool to add the new printer.

    I use the Pixma over it's wireless connection and the printer tool found it and installed it without a problem once the steps above were done. Printed a test page and then a couple of documents. So far it handles the basic printing tasks without a problem.

    Haven't tried the other software available on that site (that's for this weekend) but looks like there's a scanner package as well that I'll see if I can get working.

    This website has the .deb packages straight from the website. http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010756.asp I can't make it anymore easier than this. It works with wireless to.

    I just double clicked the tar.gz files to extract the packages into folders. Then I installed the printer first by going into the folder that was created for it and double clicked the common .deb package first. It launched the package manager for me and I just followed the screens to the install button. I repeated the above on the other .deb package. After that it was simple to add the printer as normal (note: it will show up as a mp560 printer, not a pixma mp560 in the list). I was all smiles when the test page fired up the printer!

    I did the same for the scanner and in no time I used Gimp to scan in a photo of my daughter. XSane still sees my TV capture card as the input device which is no problem because I'd rather scan right into Gimp anyway. I'll get around to fixing that later... maybe.

    By the way, I am using it in WiFi mode with Ubuntu on a 32bit system so I didn't need to use force commands you pointed out. That is why I didn't even bother using terminal to install it. Just a few mouse clicks!

    Thanks again!

    Used your post to install my MP560 on Ubuntu 10.10 and it worked a dream. Everything needed to do the install is in this post. Thank you Jer.

    Re: printing with Canon Pixma MP560

    I appreciate the links and information. It worked for me when I was using Ubuntu 10. Flawlessly.

    These instructions also work on Linux Mint Debian Edition. The driver files linked to are actually for the Debian disto, but since Ubuntu is based on Debian, they work. Most *.deb packages will work on both. There is some compatibility between Mint and Ubuntu, but they aren't fully compatible.

    So far, though, I haven't found any issues. I switched to Mint because of the direction Ubuntu was taking with the desktop, and also because of a serious bug (serious to me) in Ubuntu ver. 10 where GRUB2 couldn't be installed in the Linux root partition instead of the MBR. It's supposed to be able to do that, so you can use a boot manager in Windows to start Linux. If you don't do it that way with Vista/7, you're asking for problems if you ever make changes to your partition table in Windows and then try to boot. I did, and I don't want that to ever happen again.

    I'm not sure how you do this, but there must be a way to uninstall the deb package files and then go and reinstall them.

    Sounds like you picked up the wrong file. Try here. I refined the search using the term DEBIAN and found this one.

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100236502.html

    This is the one for ScanGear(see below for the link). My Linux Mint installation didn't need this driver as it scanned wirelessly even before I installed the Canon printer drivers! But it didn't find or install the printer, so I had to use the file above. I put the extracted files on my desktop, then opened a root terminal, typed

    CD desktop

    then ran the commands provided by member jcvey:


    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-common_3.20-1_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-mp560series_3.20-1_i386.deb

    You would do similarly with the Scangear drivers if you needed those.
