Why didn't I think of udev right away? I must be getting old...
LOL - So must I. A udev custom rule has been the answer for me with this device in 2007 http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1/#post2936557 and again in 2010 http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post3892704

My multifunction Canon PIXMA MP-258 printer is now recognized -current. Maraming salamat po lahat.

Unfortunately it appears I still have issues. I cannot get anything to printer in color. Tried printing local, from my laptop via the LAN and using xsane Copy. Ironically if I fire up any of my
VirtualBox Windows machines (XP, 7 and 8) or boot to Windows XP in my laptop it prints properly in color.

Going back to cups 1.4.6 now has issues too, it prints all black, the whole page. I just know it got to be something simple that I have overlooking.

I couldn't get the printer to printer correctly with cups 1.4.6, printing black across the entire page. At least I am able to abort it, hate to waste all that ink.

I am back to cups 1.5.3 and it's working except I cannot print in color. Only gray scale.

WooHoo! It is working now. The Thu Jun 28 21:40:00 UTC 2012 updates fixed the problem. I'm guessing it was one of these three, or maybe all combined.

Code:
ap/ghostscript-9.05-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Restored missing CUPS support.  Thanks to alienBOB.
l/libusb-1.0.9-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
l/libusb-compat-0.1.4-x86_64-1.txz:  Added.
  Split from libusb and upgraded.
Thanks to all who helped.
