Canon Pixma MP250 - Slackware 13 it doesn't print
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:
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.
You may find this thread useful.
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
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:
and copied also 356/database to /usr/lib/bjlib
at the end I ran ldconfig, restarted cups, and added new printer
