    Can anyone please explain this 'installing' instructions for me please?

    Hi,
    I want to install my Canon printer IP4200 on Ubuntu 8. Found this instructions, but as I do not understand much about this things... I found my self lost on the step # 7.
    It tells about linking files one to the other, and I do not know if that is risky for the system or if it could spoil something else up.

    Thanks
    b.

    I think I would just type each command into a terminal just in case - wont do any harm.

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpng.so /usr/lib/libpng.so.3

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2 /usr/lib/libxml.so.1

    sudo ldconfig

    Then move on to step eight.

    Those instructions are pretty straightforward. You might want to automate them in a script.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get install alien libxml1 libpng12-0 libpng12-dev libgtk1.2 libgtk1.2-common
    
    cd ~
    
    mkdir canon 
    cd canon
    wget http://software.canon-europe.com/files/soft24302/software/iP4200_Linux_260.tar.gz
    
    tar -xvzf iP4200_Linux_260.tar.gz
    
    sudo alien cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm cnijfilter-ip4200-2.60-1.i386.rpm 
    
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
    
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpng.so /usr/lib/libpng.so.3
    
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2 /usr/lib/libxml.so.1
    
    sudo ldconfig
    
    sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart
    Save the code and call it canon_ip4200.sh in your home folder.

    After that make the script executable by doing:

    Code:
    chmod 755 ~/canon_ip4200.sh
    Then run it as root by doing:
    Code:
    sudo ~/canon_ip4200.sh
    Then add the printer using instruction 9.

    9. Add a new printer. Under GNOME, this is accessed in System|Preferences|Printing. Select Canon as the manufacturer, click on "Install Driver..." and select /usr/share/cups/model/canonip4200.ppd. Now select "iP4200 Ver.2.60" under "Model". Select "Standard" for the driver (this should be the only option). Make sure the connection is correct. Hopefully, printing a test page will work!
