Canon PIXMA MP140 and CUPS - what happened?
 
I selected the printer when I set up Cups, but the printer driver seems to be broken.
The notorious jamming problem seems to be present.

I'm running Linux Mint 14 (but I haven't got any answers from the Mint forum here nor from the official Mint forum, nor even Ubuntu forum).

I heard there is a fix, but what should I update?

Synaptic didn't find anything with "cnijfilter".

I tried installing the drivers from Canon website, but:

Code:

    $ sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-common_2.80-1_i386.deb
    (Reading database ... 178707 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace cnijfilter-common 2.80-1 (using cnijfilter-common_2.80-1_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement cnijfilter-common ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of cnijfilter-common:
    cnijfilter-common depends on libcupsys2 (>= 1.2.1).

    dpkg: error processing cnijfilter-common (--install):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    cnijfilter-common

I didn't find "libcupsys" in my system at all. Libcups2 was the closest found by Synaptic.

Has the CUPS system changed since 1.5?

BTW, is i386 work with 64-bit Mint 14 anyway?

Here is a thread on askubuntu which gives a procedure to make it work.

I hope it works for you as well.

My error. I just upgraded an MX890 but apparently the MP line does not have v3.70

Well, not wuite:

I guess it need not removal but replacement for libcupsys2 (>= 1.2.1) in the dependancies.
But does it still work with 64-bit Linux?
Which package does Quantal use?

The newer packages of cnijfilter-common didn't seem to contain drivers for PIXMA MP140 or PIXMA MP150.

The sad thing here is that I had the printer in shared use with my older HW running Puppy Linux, and it worked fine.
(The the processor was 32-bit then, though.)

BTW, I added repos
http://ppa.launchpad.net/michael-gru...-stable/ubuntu quantal main
http://ppa.launchpad.net/michael-gru...-stable/ubuntu raring main
into Synaptic.

There are no 64-bit drivers for MP140 and the install of 32-bit fails due to dependancy:
Code:

cnijfilter-mp140series-32:
 Depends: cnijfilter-mp140series (>= 3.90)

and that cnijfilter-mp140series (without the "-32" postfix) is not found.

Funny, because in the Quantal package description build status includes:

Built files

Code:

cnijfilter-mp190series_3.90-63~raring1_i386.deb (1.6 MiB)

Why are these not found in Synaptic?
Where/whom I should ask? And how?

Is there any hope for ever getting the Canon Pixma MP140 to work under linux again?

I tried quite this and that with Linux Mint 14 and 15, Debian 7.0.0 and Fedora 18.
All of them recognized the printer right, but all of them freezed at the end of first page.

The driver 2.80 didn't compile any more (libraries have changed and all) and the Michael Cruz PPAs don't seem to work either.
It used to work fine with Mint 7 and Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 (0000) on my old MoBo (that broke).
My new MoBo has i3 (ivy bridge) so there is no going back to the old Linux releases.

Please, someone, tell me what to do or which program doesn't work. (CUPS? Gutenprint? Foomatic? The driver?)
