Canon MX870 Printer driver problems.

I (thought) I installed correct drivers for a Canon MX870 printer. When adding the printer to print manager trying to print didn;t work, so I added a second instance of the printer in the print manager and it printed a couple files. After a couple restarts, nothing, can't print a thing. I tried to (re)install other drivers based on this: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/07/canon-drivers-for-ubuntu-and-linux-mint/

Doesn't work. The job loads into the print manager, then just hangs up and nothing prints.

Seems best to just completely remove drivers and start over, but I have no idea how to do this.

Did you add the canon-trunk or the canon-stable? If you added the canon-stable it won't work.

Remove any printers first, Menu, System, Printers.
Then open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove cndrvcups-common* cnijfilter* scangearmp*
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:michael-gruz/canon-stable
sudo apt-get update

Then do:

wget http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/t/tiff3/libtiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i libtiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
rm libtiff*

OR if you are on 64bit:

wget http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/t/tiff3/libtiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libtiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
rm libtiff*

Then do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-trunk
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-mx870series

Then go to Menu, System, Printers and add your printer.

I'm adding a Canon Printers 'how to' for the next version of the Help Manual.

Thanks, It worked for a test print!

That "how to" is a great idea! Cheers

Used Valtam's method above to install my Canon iP2500 printer.

Worked like charm.

Thanks.
