    Re: Canon ip4600 some success

    Now my mum complains of not producing 5x7 prints properly. I'm suspecting this driver is not a fully featured driver. Nice one Canon! My mum has contacted them and is awaiting an answer.

    Strewth your Mum must be savvy, min ehas trouble printing from XP.........
    I hate to repeat myself , and I hate to pay for something that should be provided with the device , Canon?!?! But for full featured printing and ease of use the Turboprint drivers/software is error free (so far).

    NB: I won't bother with another Canon printer until they decide that Linux users are worthy of their attention.

    Re: Canon ip4600 some success

    Hi folks
    I'm considering purchase of same ip4600 but I`m not intereested in paying for "TurboPrint" software. Most important issue for me is printing direcly to CD/DVD facility. Has anybody tested this with "Glabels"? and will it give as many problems as installation of the Canon-supplied software? I'm running good ol`"Gutsy" and would appreciate any help on the issues before I decide. Many thanks.

    Question Re: Canon ip4600 some success

    Hi

    I've tried Metol's sudo command lines but just get error messages returned:


    neil@neil-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb
    dpkg: error processing cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb

    The Deb file is saved to Home and has been unpacked from the tar file.

    I'm probably missing the obvious as I am a bit of a noob to say the least!

    It includes a printer driver to let linux talk to the 4600 series. Printed test page - all's well.

    There are two drivers listed for this, Debian_driver.tar & RPM_driver.tar, which one do I use?

    You will want the Debian driver for Ubuntu.

    It is acting like the deb file is not in the directory where you are trying to execute the command. Make sure the file is in the directory that you are executing from... tar may have placed the deb file in a sub-directory.

    Hope this helps,

    Question Re: Canon ip4600 some success

    Hello evryone,

    I'd like to ask, if the IP4600 was fully working for anyone without the TurboPrint drivers.

    I plan to buy this printer, and have Jaunty installed on my PC, with AMD64, and would like to use it for CD/DVD printing, Photo printing, and documents printing (basically for everithing, it is suitable for .

    Taking my CPU architecture in consideration:
    - Is it working with the current Canon provided drivers (3.0), above 600 dpi (e.g. with extending the ppd file)

    - Is it working (better?) with the Guteprint drivers?

    - Does it by any means have drawbacks printing under Linux, compared to Windows XP?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Question Re: Canon ip4600 some success

    Have just bought and installed an iP4600 and found this thread very useful.

    Have installed the drivers and the system recognises the printer OK. Installation gave the message
    dpkg - warning, overriding problem because --force enabled:
    package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
    which is odd because I have a 64-bit Intel chip (x86_64). However, it seems to accept it.

    Unfortunately when I do a test print, I get:
    /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij failed

    Is this a problem with the printer or CUPS? I have attached a CUPS debug output in case that helps.

    Can anyone help?????????????

    Hi

    I would delete the drivers installed and reinstall them as per Metol's instructions.

    If you are used to XP download the Debian tar from the Canon webiste. Double click on it to unpack it and then drag and drop the appropriate files into your Home folder.

    Then go to Applications/ Accessories and click on Terminal. Just cut and paste Metol's command lines in and when prompted key in your password.

    Hope this sorts your problem out.

    Neil
