Question Canon Pixma MP250 - Slackware 13 it doesn't print


Hello folks,

Trying to make a Canon Pixma 3-in-1 MP250 to work with my Slackware.
I've took the drivers from the canon website (they have .deb, .rpm and sources there) and compile. Basically I followed the instructions from INSTALL files in each subdirectory (backend,cngpij, etc).

Then I upgraded also CUPS to 1.4.3.

Installing the printer in CUPS, I end up with:

Code:
Description:	Canon MP250 series
Location:	
Driver:	Canon MP250 series Ver.3.20 (color)
Connection:	cnijusb:/dev/usb/lp0
Defaults:	job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm
It seems ok. But when I send a test page (or any other kind) to printer, it shows some activity on the led display, cups reports the job as completed but nothing happens!

As an extra, I tried to convert .deb packages to .tgz and install from them. The same result, except now the scangear utility is working (so scanning is ok).

How can I find what's missing from here? Maybe it's a bug with cups/drivers or something is missing from configuration?

p.s. On other machine I have an Xubuntu (Karmic Koala). Installed there from .deb packages and the printer works as expected.

I tried removing usblp and also downgrading the cups to 1.3.X series. I got the same result: jobs are shown as completed but nothing prints actually.

I gave up for now and use a xubuntu for printing purposes. Maybe the next version of slackware will fix somehow the issue.

MP250 under slackware 13.37 works for me

Hi,

MP250 works on slackware 13.37, cups 1.4.3 and IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.40 (http://support-au.canon.com.au/conte...100302002.html) for me

I've also followed the instructions in each subdirectory (libs,backend,backendnet,cngpij,cngpijmon,cnijfilter,lgmon,ppd,printui,pstocanonij) using --prefix=/usr --program-suffix=mp250 --enable-progpath=/usr;

then I copied *.so from 356/libs_bin32/ to /usr/lib and made
symbolic links according to:
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cn...mp250/PKGBUILD
and copied also 356/database to /usr/lib/bjlib

at the end I ran ldconfig, restarted cups, and added new printer
