    Caf's probably right onthis. In any case, I found this

    Canon Print Filter for Linux

    but no promises that it will work.

    You could try google translate with this French thread:

    Forum Ubuntu-fr.org / [howto] Installer une imprimante Canon Pixma IP1600

    Last resort, (if you don't mind paying for drivers), is TurboPrint.

    I think this is more encouraging than the link Caf gave you:

    Default Install Canon Pixma ip2200 rpm driver made by

    are you using 32bit or 64 bit linux?

    PV has pointed folks to Canon Europe;

    their Asia site also has the drivers;

    Seems to me every new device from Canon now has LINUX drivers;

    so let's say THANKS VERY MUCH to them; WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, CANON;

    the link below should point directly to LINUX drivers made by Canon

    Canon

    OpenSuse uses the rpm format;

    so click on that rpm cpmmon package link;

    doing that should prompt to ask if you want to install so say yes;

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply 64 bit

    OS: Linux 2.6.27.29-0.1-default x86_64
    System: openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
    KDE: 3.5.10 "release 21.11"

    Would it be ok to continue....

    The links do seem to assume 32bit

    BTW I am a newbie - so simple please.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply 64 bit

    OS: Linux 2.6.27.29-0.1-default x86_64

    The links do seem to assume 32bit
    The OpenPrinting Canon-PIXMA_iP2200 page suggests

    Driver is not fully GPL and therefore not expected to work in non-32bit PC systems, like AMD64, or Intel ET64, or PPC (e.g. Linux on Apple) systems.
    However, I'm not sure on this, but in general, many 32 bit CUPS drivers work ok with 64 bit systems, so long as a link like this is made

    ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter
    *Note the name of your driver may differ.

    Others please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    should be fine;

    you should just need to create a link after you have installed the driver: i think you will have two packages so install a common one first and then an ip2200 package after;

    the link; PV recommended this

    The pstocanonij is in /usr/lib/cups/filter; CUPS is looking for it in /usr/lib64/cups/filter.


    You just need to add a link as follows:

    Code:

    ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter
    so if you open a terminal after install and run the above;

    let us know how it goes

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.

    The rpm will not install - I was trying to use Kpackage?

    cnijfilter-common-2.60-3.i386.rpm

    Any ideas?

    signetone;

    1) Down load the rpm into some directory.
    2) Open a terminal window an enter:
    Code:
    su
    cd <path to directory with the rpm>
    rpm -Uvh cnijfilter-common-2.60-3.i386.rpm
    For information on the above parameters and usage of the rpm command see:
    man rpm

    Good Luck.
