Canon Pixma printer: libpangox-1.0.so.0 => not found


Hi,

I'm currently trying to configure a Canon Pixma printer for a client. I've already setup the printer successfully on his previous Ubuntu 10.04 desktop. I've just migrated this machine to Slackware 14.1.

The printer drivers have to be downloaded on the Canon website. They come in various RPM and DEB formats, and also as "source", which only works for rpmbuild. So I took the best guess and converted the RPM packages to TGZ using rpm2tgz and installed them. The content looks good so far.

The built-in scanner doesn't work with Xsane or Simple Scan, but Canon is shipping its own scanning application, which works very well.

The corresponding package installs a /usr/local/bin/scangearmp binary. This worked well in Ubuntu, but not in Slackware. I checked with ldd, and so far, all the needed libraries seem to be installed, except this single one:

Code:
libpangox-1.0.so.0 => not found
But the pango package is already installed. So how am I supposed to provide this missing library?

Cheers,

Niki

I'll answer this myself, since I just found the solution: pangox-compat (available on SBo) seems to be the missing package.

Printer now works perfectly.

Yes, You're right. It works with that package (pangox-compat). Need it for scangearmp and had the same error as you mentioned. But that's fine now. You helped me with this post.
