Driver for Canon Pixma ip1800
 
Anyone who has access to a working driver for the Canon Pixma ip1800 printer, please let me know. Im running Ubuntu studio and the driver that Canon offers is an RPM package. I would appreciate any assistance you guys can give me, I have a mess of things to print for a project Im working on, and I need to get this thing working. Thanks in advance.

Tried this driver(feisty): http://www.esnips.com/doc/c30d6ff0-9...es_2.70-2_i386

I tried that driver, it installed with no problems, but when I try to print, nothing happens. I pull up the print jobs monitor and it say the printer has stopped. Any clues as to what might be happening?
Thanks again.

You don't say if you actually tried the Canon driver. On Ubuntu, You can install an RPM using alien.

Gratifying to hear that Canon is supplying Linux drivers....

The iP1800 driver comes in two packages: common and ip1800series. That page is missing the common package. Also..

While using alien -idc <package> will install the driver, because the directory structure in Canon's rpm is geared to RedHat-based system it will not work. The drivers first have to be repackaged. I've already done it for my own iP1800 and you can get them here.

Not really. The driver for the iP1800 comes from Canon Australia and was developed by them for Australians who use linux more than North Americans and tend to demend quality service more than us. It is not officially supported though. Neither Canon USA nor Canon Canada provide Linux support.

Similar Problem
 
I've read the posts in this thread, hoping it will help me but without success. I'm running KUBUNTU 8.10 and am trying to install a canon Pixma iP1800. I downloaded the files that were posted on the Xubuntu howto. The common file loaded OK and after I loaded a dependency libxml1, the cnijfilter-ip1800_2.70-2_i386-hardy.deb file tried to load. It failed however with the following errors:
Setting up cnijfilter-ip1800series (2.70-2) ...
invoke-rc.d: unknown initscript, /etc/init.d/cupsys not found.
dpkg: error processing cnijfilter-ip1800series (--install):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 100
Processing triggers for libc6 ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
Errors were encountered while processing:
cnijfilter-ip1800series

This may have to do with the difference in ubuntu versions? Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Any chance at an AMD64 version?
