    You may want to look at the following canon site.

    Thanks to Canon as they have provide a driver for the IP3600! =D>

    Hi all,

    I used the driver from here, and it worked a treat:

    Just had to specify the ppd file and it worked

    Cheers

    Joining the conversation late, but yes, ip3600 i386 driver works on amd64 for me.

    For the last several months I was using canon pixma ip3600 with xubuntu on an i386 machine. This weekend, my CPU on the old i386 box roasted itself so I went and bought an AMD64 mother and CPU for my box. I am running xubuntu 8.04.3.lts on my AMD box.

    Here is how I installed the ip3600 an my new 64 bit machine (somebody please say if I used the wrong folders):

    downloaded ip3600_debian_printer.tar from Canon Europe and saved it in /usr/local/src for safekeeping.

    Made a temporary folder (I used /tmp/installing), and then used these commands to unpack the tar file:

    cd /tmp/installing
    sudo tar -xvvf /usr/src/ip3600_debian_printer/ip3600_debian_printer.tar

    Next I had two .deb files and also another .tar.gz file. The .tar.gz file has a certain ppd file that the printer needs. So I ran the next commands to put stuff into my /usr/local tree:

    cd /usr/local/lib
    sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib/ip3600_driver
    cd /usr/local/lib/ip3600_driver

    Since I used this location I didn't have to manually set the ppd file, eliminating a later step because ubuntu found it automatically for me:

    sudo tar -xvvzf /tmp/installing/cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.tar.gz

    Finally, I installed the .deb packages. The first time I clicked on them you will get a message saying "Error: Wrong Architecture i386". So I referenced other ubuntu forums and eventually found this good explanation of what that message means. After reading that and the man page section covering "--force" I ran this command in a terminal:

    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb cnijfilter-ip3600series_3.00-1_i386.deb

    Which did install the packages in about 1 second.

    Then I turned on the printer and xubuntu instantly recognized it, and so I started printing and it works great.

    Thanks Canon and xubuntu and ubuntuforums!

    I tried doing just that, but the .deb files won't install.

    This is the output I get:

    However, I can't seem to install this 'libcupsys2' file...Can anyone help??

    Re: Canon PIXMA IP3600

    I was careful to write my post as what worked for me. I am not a ubuntu expert. One thing that I can tell you about libcupsys2 is that I ran the following shell command on my system (where I have the ip3600 working flawlessly with xubuntu 8.04.3 on an AMD64 machine as described above):

    aptitude show libcupsys2

    and the output of the "show" command says that libcupsys2 is installed on my system. I am unsure what you have tried to do to install libcupsys2, on my system, if I wanted to install that file I would type this command into a shell:

    sudo aptitude install libcupsys2

    And if that doesn't work - allowing you to install the .deb files for the ip3600 printer -then I would keep searching the forums and asking for help and someone who knows more than I do will help you.

    Output of 'aptitude show libcupsys2':
    No current or candidate version found for libcupsys2
    Package: libcupsys2
    State: not a real package
    Provided by: libcups2

    Output of 'sudo apt-get install libcupsys2':
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package libcupsys2 is a virtual package provided by:
    libcups2 1.4.1-5ubuntu2.1
    You should explicitly select one to install.
    E: Package libcupsys2 has no installation candidate

    So I tried installing libcups2, and got this:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    libcups2 is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 14 not upgraded.

    Still no idea what's wrong.

    Re: Canon PIXMA IP3600

    I had the same problem trying to install my Canon printer in Karmic. Wish I knew the answer.
    All I know is libcupsys2 has been changed in Karmic to libcups2 and my printer did not work. I went back to Jaunty which has libcupsys2 and my printer works again!
