    You can remove it with:

    sudo dpkg -r libc6

    after that you can reinstall libc6 using synaptic or apt.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Canon PIXMA ip1500

    "By the way, there was another problem in openoffice, which would only print to a5. The solution is to configure the printer through oopadmin (from command line). I'm not quite sure if one has to do that every time a setting needs to be changed. Anyway, it seems to override the printer settings from openoffice itself (the writer for ex.)."

    I've noticed this A5 problem, but running "oopadmin" in a terminal says:

    bash: oopadmin: command not found

    Where are you running this command from?

    Also in the Gimp even when I miss out -oraw I am getting no output

    Please help - I can get a test page from the printer but *no* applications will print anything

    I'm still having exactly the same problems. I was hoping someone who knew about these thing would be able to help. Hence me checking in now.

    Does any one know how to solve these issues?

    Cheers,
    Dan.

    I'm trying really hard to be legit by not pirating windows; but why can't i get the Canon PIXMA iP1500 to work with Ubuntu Intrepid? Every discussion about this has somehow led me to a dead end.

    I tried the link in the quote above; and when i typed "sudo apt-get install alien libxml1" (near the beginning of the instructions), i got this ...

    "Package libxml1 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
    E: Package libxml1 has no installation candidate"

    Then i got bashed with a "no such file or directory" for the second to last line: "sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart".



    Yes, i am new; but i'm a newb who is diligently trying to learn the Linux way of life and forsake the wayward path that is microsoft (and the rip-off that is mac). Is someone willing to help me figure out this issue? Thank you in advance for your kind assistance.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Canon PIXMA ip1500

    Problem Solved ...

    First of all, make sure your system is up-to-date (e.g., use Synaptic Package Manager under System -> Administration).

    Once that's done, the following link is definitely VERY helpful and i would be completely lost without it; but i'm posting a couple of changes to it that worked for my computer.

    Link: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanonPixmaIP1500

    Amendments:

    Instruction #3: If you get an error message about libxml1, try then typing:
    sudo apt-get install libxml2

    Instruction #8 should be:
    sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

    Instruction #9: After you go to System -> Administration -> Printing, just to be sure, ...
    1. Add the printer if it's icon isn't already there
    2. Right-click on the printer
    3. Select "Properties" from context menu
    4. Click the "Change" button that corresponds to "Make and Model"
    5. Check the radio button beside "Provide PPD file"
    6. Click on the file finder in that section of the window
    7. Locate the directory /usr/share/cups/model
    8. Double-click the PPD file: "canonpixmaip1500.ppd"
    9. Follow the directions

    Thank you, tsayles, for the very helpful link, and thank you to whoever wrote those instructions!

    Re: HOWTO: Install Canon PIXMA ip1500

    Thanks to you all, especially JAKOB!

    I am new to UBUNTU... actually new to LINUX... as in this was my first time ever messing around with this.
    I upgraded a four year old laptop to 1G Ram and installed UBUNTU today.
    I ran into the same problem with the CANON PIXMA IP1500 and followed the instructions in this link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanonPixmaIP1500 AS CORRECTED by Jakob above.

    Brilliant!

    My printer works perfectly with UBUNTU now.

    Yeay!
