I have a Canon Pixma iP4000. It worked in 11.1, and worked until recently in 11.2. But now it does not work. When I try to print anything with it I get the error:
“Unable to find Gutenprint driver named “Canon PIXMA iP4000”!”
I have tried deleting the printer and setting it up several times in both the YaST printer module and http://localhost:631/. Nothing changes. I am using the driver it suggests and the driver definitely exists. I have tried reinstalling all of my cups and gutenprint-related software as well. I am using an up-to-date x86-64 system.
Looks like there was an update to cups that specifically fixed this problem (installation output said the driver for this printer was the only one changed).
So, it’s working now? I just ask as I am about to install 11.2 on my desktop and laptop over the next couple of weeks and I would hate for my IP3300 to die.
I have the same problem except that the printer is a Canon Pixma MP540. Works OK with Mandriva and Fedora12 (64 bit) but although it says that the Canon drivers are installed I get a message saying that "Filter “pstocanonij” for printer “MP540” not available. No such file or directory.#Can any one help please?

The problem is that the Canon rpm put the filter in:
/usr/lib/cups/filter/ and you need it in: /usr/lib64/cups/filter/
The easiest way to fix this is to create a link in /usr/lib64/cups/filter/
Open a terminal window and enter:
ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter

To avoid problems use cups and gutenprint builds from here:
