    Default Cups Canon Printing Problem

    I have problems printing fron OpenSUSE 12.1 with CUPS 1.5.0 and my canon printer MF8450. I can print testpages from the printer manager of Yast. Printing from all other programs give me the following error, in CUPS

    Code:
    "src = bidiCommon.c, line = 1026, err = 0¥nDEBUG: Connecting to 192.168.1.150:9100"
    Can somebody help me.

    Did you try the driver from

    i-SENSYS MF8450

    For network printing, some Canon printers require the proprietary bjnp back-end to be present first.

    Yep, that is the driver I'm using version 2.20. @Canon got the great help "O Linux, that OS we are not supporting"

    I think it would be worth a go to install cups-bjnp (as I have played with). There is no openSUSE specific package (that I'm aware of), but I've found from experience, that it is ok to install a recent rpm from

    RPM Search cups-bjnp

    Once you have the appropriate 32-bit or 64-bit package installed, try reconfiguring your printer via the CUPS web interface

    http://localhost:631/admin

    Select 'Add Printer', enter your root credentials when prompted, and look for the bjnp backend. Follow the prompts given.

    Let us know how that goes.

    That not working it keeps complaining endless of missing dependency's. I can understand why windows is still popular, the DRIVERS are WORKING.

    This sucks, having a $1000 printer and I can only print from a windows machine, It's the last time ever I bought a Canon product.

    Welcome to the club :-)

    May I suggest you give "Turbo Print" a try? They make commercial drivers
    for Canon and other makes. It is commercial but cheap, and you can try them
    for free. I had a Canon printer and had to buy that software, I have no
    other relation to them, just a happy customer.

    hello
    I'm ubuntu user
    recently I have bought mf8360... and i'm really disappoint Canon too they wrote that my printer is supported LInux In all data sheet... since january 2012

    I try to help you. surprise.you printer is supported http://scripts.linuxwizard.ru/prn_CAPT22_UFR_HCL.txt Canon's technical support don't know about that For my case/printer. they said that they'll cancel my warranty if I'll use printer with Linux
    drivers http://files.canon-europe.com/files/...x_l_ufr220.zip
    I have 64 bit system in server and have some troubles, but see this quote. I don't have any problem on desktop 32 bit system
    The upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 is complete. The printer did not work out of the shoot. But this time, yet a third problem came up:


    Idle - "Printer not connected; will retry in 30 seconds..."


    I found this as the "Status" under http://localhost:631/printers (the CUPS browser interface). I had not seen that one before. I checked /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoufr2cpca and in fact, it was a file (vs. a link) as it should be. I then went to install the 32bit libraries:


    sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 ia32-libs lib32z1


    But I installed them one at a time instead of all three at once. I noted that lib32z1 was already installed, I guess by ia32-libs, so that one wasn't really needed.

    Still no joy after the 32bit/i386 libs install, the status still showed as:


    Idle - "Printer not connected; will retry in 30 seconds..."


    So I rebooted and guess what? It worked!!! I could print from my machine (the one the MF4350d is attached to) and also over the network from another machine on my network.

    So I have no idea why the printer was not communicating with the machine at first, and I'm not 100% certain that the 32bit/i386 libraries made a difference or not but they were required the last time I went through this.
    installinf 32 bit libs helps... I suppose? because I don't know 100% I tuned printer from home. But printer printed smth and cups haven't brocen jobs.... but strange log exist "src = bidiCommon.c, line = 1026, err = 0¥nDEBUG: Read 479 bytes of print data..." i think it's ok

    ps
    Turbo Print don't support mf series

    pps
    I'll **** by mail, phone Canon's technical support

    Wow. :-(

    Notice that if the printer is a "winprinter" then it would make sense. They
    use the cpu in the computer and a driver instead of having a capable cpu in
    the printer, so making them cheaper. The driver is windows only.

    >> sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 ia32-libs lib32z1


    Please remember that apt-get is not a supported installation method in
    openSUSE.

    I was not aware of that.
