    Default Canon MG3100 driver installation - openSuse 13.1

    Hi I have this output after running driver downloaded from Canon website:

    Then I could not find these files in YaST:
    libtiff.so.3()(64bit)
    libxml2

    ... Is there anything else I can do to make this printer work?

    AFAIU, the sane-pixma backend should support scanning via network according to

    http://www.sane-project.org/man/sane-pixma.5.html

    NETWORKING SUPPORT

    The pixma backend supports network scanners using the so called Canon
    BJNP protocol. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.

    Configuration is normally not required. The pixma backend will auto-
    detect your scanner if it is within the same subnet as your computer if
    your OS does support this.

    If your scanner can not be auto-detected, you can add it to the pixma
    configuration file (see above).


    FIREWALLING FOR NETWORKED SCANNERS

    The sane pixma backend communicates with port 8612 on the scanner. So
    you will have to allow outgoing traffic TO port 8612 on the common sub‐
    net for scanning.

    Scanner detection is slightly more complicated. The pixma backend sends
    a broadcast on all direct connected subnets it can find (provided your
    OS allows for enumeration of all netowrk interfaces). The broadcast is
    sent FROM port 8612 TO port 8612 on the broadcast address of each
    interface. The outgoing packets will be allowed by the rule described
    above.

    Responses from the scanner are sent back to the computer TO port 8612.
    Connection tracking however does not see a match as the response does
    not come from the broadcast address but from the scanners own address.
    For automatic detection of your scanner, you will therefore have to
    allow incoming packets TO port 8612 on your computer.

    So in short: open the firewall for all traffic from your computer to
    port 8612 AND to port 8612 to your computer.

    With the firewall rules above there is no need to add the scanner to
    the pixma.conf file, unless the scanner is on a network that is not
    directly connected to your computer.

    Some manual configuration of /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf

    Sorry, that should have read: Some manual configuration of /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf is required along with the necessary firewall adjustment (port 8612 open).

    I have installed a Canon Pixma 4240 via CUPS.

    When I try to print a test page from CUPS I get: "Unable to open print file: No such file or directory"

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    You might try examining /var/log/cups/error_log for more specific details. It is possible to increase the verbosity (refer to 'LogLevel') as explained here

    http://www.cups.org/documentation.ph...upsd-conf.html

    Once the edit has been made to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, restart CPS with
    Code:
    systemctl restart cups
    and try the test print again. Hopefully, you'll then get a better picture about what the issue is.

    Hello,
    I am tagging onto this thread as I have a similar problem with an MG6250. When I run:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.2.x86_64.rpm
    I get:-Problem retrieving the specified RPM file:
    File './libtiff3-3.9.5-1.2.x86_64.rpm' not found on medium 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/graphics/openSUSE_13.1/x86_64'

    Please check whether the file is accessible.
    Problem with the RPM file specified as 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/graphics/openSUSE_13.1/x86_64/libtiff3-3.9.5-1.2.x86_64.rpm', skipping.
    No valid arguments specified.
    linux-w5vq:/tmp/MG6250 # ^C

    I am assuming that recent updates have overtaken the repository but am not sure where the correct files are? Can anyone advise please?

    Thanks

    That's because your link pertains to a file that doesn't exist. (To be precise, libtiff3 is available, but the version has changed.)

    It's probably easiest if you use

    http://software.opensuse.org/package/libtiff3

    You can use the '1-click Install' button to subscribe to the repo and download the required file, or just click on the required file itself.

    I did as you suggested (for which much thanks) but get the following: -

    I tried to configure the printer anyway but get failure to connect error in the cups error log file.
    I then searched for the missing file using yast and managed to get it down to:

    Can you tell me where I can find libtiff.so.3...... please?
    Thanks
