You could also change the ownership to your user. As far as I know, root does not need to own the file to install it.
So, as root, 'chown username username filename' and try again.
[root@localhost ~]# ls -l cnijfilter-common-2.80-1.i386.rpm
ls: cannot access cnijfilter-common-2.80-1.i386.rpm: No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]# cnijfilter-mp140series-2.80-1.i386.rpm
bash: cnijfilter-mp140series-2.80-1.i386.rpm: command not found
[root@localhost ~]# ls -l cnijfilter-mp140series-2.80-1.i386.rpm
ls: cannot access cnijfilter-mp140series-2.80-1.i386.rpm: No such file or directory
I have the files on my root desktop, all owned by root.
This is what's happening:
All done logged on as root, with the printer plugged in and switched on.
as advised by Canon.
Downloaded MP140_rpm.tar from Canon.and got 5 packages:
This is what I get if I follow the Canon procedure which says the "common" file must be installed first:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh cnijfilter-common-2.80-1.i386.rpm
error: open of cnijfilter-common-2.80-1.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh cnijfilter-mp140seeries-2.80-1.i386.rpm
error: open of cnijfilter-mp140series-2.80-1.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory
If I right-click the "common" package I get a file "cnijfilter-common-2.80"
Open this file to find 16 more files and 4 documents.
If I double-click the "common" package, I get:
"Local file installer is running as a privileged user
Package management applications are security sensitive.
Running graphical applications as a privileged user should be avoided for security reasons."
and the option to "continue anyway", so I do.
I'm then asked if I want to install the file, but get "failed to install file", reason: "don't have the necessary priviliges"
Right-clicking the mp140 package produces a "usr" file which contains 3 more files: lib, local, and share
Double-clicking this package produces the same as I get double-clicking the "common" package.
I must be doing something wrong, but what?
