Canon Pixma iP1500 Slackware 10.1
 
Hi, I' trying to get a pixma iP1500 working on slackware 10.1. I googled it a bit and I gound some rpms which i converted to tzg : bjfilter-common-2.50-2.i386.tgz, bjfilter-pixmaip1500-2.50-2.i386.tgz, bjfilter-pixmaip1500-lprng-2.50-2.i386.tgz.

Most ppl say they are supposed to work :). I installed them , configured my printer with cups on canon_usb/dev/usb/lp0 ( A pixma ip1500 ver 2.50 driver ) like it is supposed to be and then when i test it it just blinks one time and that's it. When i run a lp /etc/motds it says : request id is pixma-10 (1 file(s)) it blinks and that's it :
the output of dmesg :
..........................................

Hi again, i turned debug on and i found some error messages :

It complained about the libpng it should be 10 and it's 12 in slackware 10.1. I did a symbolic link but now it says : no version information available. And I can't find libpng10 for slack anywhere. :(

Now I am using Vector Linux 5... but it's based off of slackware 10.1 (I think my version is anyway)

I have a solution! (and I registered just to post this)

I assume you have installed the packages. I converted them to tgz first, just because I like to do that. Well, so long as you installed those three packages.

#su
#[password]

#cd /usr/lib
#ln -s libxml2.so.2 libxml.so.1
#ln -s libpng.so.3 libpng.so.2

The rest should be straightforward?

:)

thanks a lot for taking some time to load and post that solution. It didn't work for me first ( i have 10.2 now) but it suggested me a little tweak I tried
#ln -s libpng.so.3.1.28 libpng10.so.0
and it worked just great.
Hope many users will find this thread cause i saw a lot of questions like this on the internet .
