Hello to all!

I am dual booting Pardus 2008 with WindowsXP Home Ed., but 99% of the time I'm logged on to Pardus. The remaining 1% of the time I boot to Windows happens when I need to print something on my Canon Pixma ip1000 which is not supported by Pardus. This isnt the fault of the distro of course.

Is there a way to make ip1000 work on Pardus?

Thanks.

I appreciate the reminder. Ive read the Rules. As for installing pixma ip1000 canon drivers, the process as I see it are too complex for a newb like me. Guess Ive struck out on my old printer while on Linux.

Thanks anyway and best regards to all!

There is a compressed archive for your printer on the Canon website. You can download it here : http://software.canon-europe.com/files/soft22414/software/iP1000Linux.tar.gz

It's a bit of work to get your printer working under Linux, but it should pay. You have to install and use the rpm2targz command in a terminal, following the same method shown here : http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=1149.0

Thanks phix. I followed the instructions, after installing rpm2tgz and downloading the ip1000 linux driver from canon website. the process went without any errors and the printer ip1000 appeared as choice in the File>print menu of any document I opened.

However, the printer remained silent when I actually print something. No activity whatsoever. This despite the printer being detected during installation of the driver.

I have two questions related to this:

1.How do I remove the name of the printer canonip1000 at File>print? Its useless anyway so might as well remove it.
2. Back when I was still using Ubuntu, I can see what devices are being connected to my computer by typing the command lsusb. This command does not work in Pardus. Is there any equivalent to lsusb?

Best regards.

Regarding the printer configuration, did you do : /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p ip1000 -m canonip1000.ppd -v cnij_usb:/dev/usb/lp0 -E  and sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -d ip1000 ?

To use lsusb :

Code:
su -
lsusb

Hello Phix,

No, I havent yet done those commands. I might have missed them in the previous link's guide. To be sure I will try them out when I get home. Whether this will make my printer work or not, I really appreciate your continued assistance.

I have another computer with Pardus 2008 (not used for printing or browsing yet.) I confirm that lsusb works after issuing the command su - with root password.

I will let you guys know how it goes later.

Best regards.

I got an error when I issued the commands. Here's a snapshot of my screen. Sorry for this full screen image.=)

1. I tried issuing the command verbatim... result error saying "unable to copy pdd file!"
2. I also tried the command replacing ip1000 with ip1500 because when I oppened tasma>peripherals>printer the option available is only ip1500 not ip1000 although the tar.gz package I downloaded and extacted is ip1000Linux.tar.gz.
3. Again I tried 1 and 2 above as root. same resulting error.
4. More suggestions?

Thanks again Phix.

The right ppd file name is : canonpixmaip1000.ppd. It is in bjfilter-common-2.50-2.src.tar.gz and should be copied in /etc/cups/ppd

Code:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p ip1000 -m canonpixmaip1000.ppd -v cnij_usb:/dev/usb/lp0 -E

I got another error:

lpadmin: Bad device-uri "cnij_usb:/dev/usb/lp0"!

Sorry to be a bother about this. But I am really inexperienced with command line

You have got to plug in your USB printer before running this command line, because the device file /dev/usb/lp0 is created when the printer is plugged in and deleted when it is not.

Can you give the output of the following command, after your printer is plugged in and turned on:

ls -la /dev/usb
