    Re: Canon MP240

    Yahoo! I have a functioning printer (although not the scanner as yet).

    Here is what I did:

    As root user, download the file MP240_debian_drivers.tar from here:

    http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010645.asp

    the site found by sirwilliamthenice.

    Expanded that archive to get the archives

    - MP240_debian_printer.tar
    - MP240_debian_scangear.tar

    The archive - MP240_debian_printer.tar expands to give the archives/directories

    - cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.tar.gz
    - cnijfilter-common-3.00-1._i386.deb
    - cnijfilter-mp240series_3.00-1_i386.deb

    The archive - cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.tar.gz expands to give the directory

    - cnijfilter-common-3.00

    This directory contains a directory ppd

    which contains the file

    - canonmp240.ppd


    I ran:

    - cnijfilter-common-3.00-1._i386.deb
    - cnijfilter-mp240series_3.00-1_i386.deb

    simply by double-clicking on them.

    Powered up the printer, went to

    System
    - Administration
    - Printing

    - New printer

    - Select CanonMP240 from the list

    - Forward

    - Provide ppd

    - Browse to the file - canonmp240.ppd

    Then follow the prompts.


    Anyone who can get the scanner functioning properly will be a hero. Beyond my meager Ubuntu abilities, but I'll keep plugging at it.

    Re: Canon MP240

    I now have the scanner working.

    The archive

    - scangearmp-common_1.20-1.tar.gz

    contains the folders

    - scangearmp-common_1.20-1_i386.deb
    - scangearmp-mp240series_1.20-1_i386.deb
    - scangearmp-common-1.20

    I ran the files

    - scangearmp-common_1.20-1_i386.deb
    - scangearmp-mp240series_1.20-1_i386.deb

    and the scanner is now seen and functions through GIMP, but is still not seen by Xsane.

    To use, load GIMP.

    File
    ____ Acquire

    ____________ Scangear MP

    Works a treat!

    I hope this information is of use to others with this MP printer, and a tip of the hat to Canon for supporting Linux and releasing these drivers.

    Hey sirwilliamthenice,

    Can you post that tar file somewhere other people could grab it? Or I could pm to get a copy. I have this printer and would LOVE to get it working in Ubuntu.

    Cheers!

    Re: [SOLVED] Canon MP240

    Check to see if you can access the tar here:

    http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010645.asp

    You need to select this link:

    1. Debian Linux Printer & Scanner Drivers (3.0)

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and select this link:

    MP240_debian_drivers.tar 12301 Kb.

    Accept the license agreement and it should download for you.

    PM me if you can't grab it from Canon's site.

    Re: [SOLVED] Canon MP240

    hmmmmm either I'm going blind or Canon is doing something weird! I would swear on my first born that link wasn't there an hour ago!!!

    I feel the need to make up some devious and complicated conspiracy theory to cover for me not being able to read ;P

    Thanks icore-skippy got the file and will now try to get it up and running.

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    Excellent news bsv! Great printer, and the scanner interface via GIMP is neat too.

    Re: [SOLVED] Canon MP240

    Hi pompeyjohn, the file is still there when I go to the link. IIRC bsv had the same problem when looking for it. What do you see when you go to that link? You could try selecting the 'OS' and 'language' and see if that discloses the download link for you. My ISP will choke if I try to email a 12mb tar to you.
