    Re: Canon pixma mx7600

    Canon does not, in any way, provide Linux hardware support for this printer. They do, however, have MacOSX CUPS drivers. If you can extract the files, and install them manually, you might be able to get it to work. After all, CUPS is CUPS, regardless if it's running on Linux or OpenBSD (what OSX is based on).

    EDIT: You can find information on how to open Mac's dmg files here. Or you can just mount the file. DMG files are just disk images of Apple's file system: HFS.

    to mount it:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t hfs -o loop printerdriver.dmg /mount/point
    EDIT2: You must install the following packages first:
    hfsplus
    hfsutils
    hfsprogs
    libhfsp0

    I was able to get the printer to print this morning. I intalled the cups-bjnp driver from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cups-bjnp/ then used the Canon PIXMA iP5300 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.0-rc1 Simplified driver.

    Hello slickbob,
    plese tell me, if scanning (e.g. with sane) with the Pixma MX7600 works, too.

    If not, I will buy an HP, Epson or Brother with same features, instead.

    I haven't tried sane yet. Support should be in the Sane CVS. Check out this blog post:

    I've installed the cups-bjnp driver

    How do I "use" the gutenprint-5.2.4-rc1.dmg file?

    Re: Canon pixma mx7600

    I too am thinking of getting this printer/fax/scanner but am not very expert with setting stuff up in Ubuntu. I have had a Canon S900 which I managed to get to work by following advice in the forums, but for some reason it has gone very temperamental!
    Has anyone managed to get all the mx7600 functions working???
