    Nice writeup, thank you. I am running 32 bit 10.04 and had to comment out the install.sh to force C_system=deb per the instructions for 64 bit. Otherwise installed perfectly.

    In case it is not obvious, you can install the scangearmp driver following the same instructions, but first you need to download the 32 bit drivers from Asia:

    After you install the drivers run the scangearmp in terminal, update your scanner list and you should be all set.
    AWESOME! Thank you, thank you.

    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    After using your installation instructions, 32-bit version on Ubuntu 10.10 on 64-bit system, commenting out as you said etc. printing wireless repeatedly failed, for days. As a last ditch effort before throwing my printer at my notebook and then against the wall , anyways my hostname was the default when I set my install up, in my case it was way to long. So...

    So uninstall the driver, ...
    Code:
    sudo cnijfilter-mx870series-pkgconfig.sh --uninstall
    Rename to something shorter
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/hostname
    and save

    Install again
    Code:
    sudo ./install.sh
    Thank you for your instructions sir.

    It doesn't work for me

    Running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. Downloaded the 32bit drivers and commented out or changed lines of code in the install.sh file as instructed. When I run the install.sh script, it processes the deb files just fine but does not see the printer on the network. Here's the command line:

    Code:

    My mx870 printer is connected to my wifi router and is working fine with my wife's laptop (running windows 7) as she is able to print to it wirelessly. I can also print to it wirelessly via VirtualBox / WinXP.

    Please help

    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    I am using LTS 10.04 on a 64 bit system.
    Following the instructions, I could install the printer driver and the scan driver !
    Thank you very much !!

    However the SCAN does only work by using ALT + F2 and entering 'scangearmp'

    with any other Scan program it does not work !

    Has anyone an idea ?

    Hi. Thank you very much.
    I followed the instructions and my printer is working ok wirelessly in my ubuntu 10.10 64bit.
    However, the scanner installs, but when I try to run scangear, it outputs this:

    scangearmp: error while loading shared libraries: libgimp-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


    (I installed gimp because of the libgimp-2.0 module. Before installing gimp the install script failed because of said library missing.)
    Also, mine is a Canon Pixma MP560. the driver is the scangearmp 1.40.
    Please help.

    Just I like to remind you to be very carefull with installing libraries. I just killed my entire Ubuntu due to installation of glib library which was said to be missed.
    I am sure it was my own fault but if you are not well known to Linux be careful.

    Hi,
    I just tried to install on the Ubuntu 10.10 64 bist system as I did before with the 10,04 LTS
    However, I have now the same problem as 'teranine'.

    By executing the install.sh I get :

    Searching for printers...

    Re: How To: Install Canon PIXMA MX870 drivers on i368 and 64bit ubuntu

    Hello Keith,
    thanks for your investigations.
    I just recognized that I also can not print from USB.
    The printer was detected and installed as USB printer when I did add with the printer tool.
    However when I start a print job it shows that job is on hold.
    When I run a diagnosis I get
    /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij failed

    I get a long list with the debug tool.
    Hear jsut the first lines which may help ?

    age 1 (Scheduler not running?):
    {'cups_connection_failure': False}
    Page 2 (Choose printer):
    {'cups_dest': <cups.Dest MX870-series (default)>,
    'cups_instance': None,
    'cups_queue': 'MX870-series',
    'cups_queue_listed': True}
    Page 3 (Check printer sanity):

    Thanks for any advise.
    Ralph
