[SOLVED] Canon MG3500 Printer

Post by gabbman » Thu Jan 17, 2019 12:19 am

I just want to report that I have just installed 19.1.04 and for the first time can not get the software to talk to the wireless connection of this printer.

I have installed 25-30 various versions of ArcoLinux over the last few months and it was allways an easy install, just

Code: Select all

yaourt mg3500
select option 1 and follow the install prompts. Then localhost:631 add new printer etc. always worked.

As we no longer have yaourt, I used trizen to do the install (very same as with yaourt). But the results after the localhost install failed. I have posted some shots of the mess.

Something has changed from December iso's to the new one besides the loss of yaourt.

I remember we got a new system-config-printer the other day. (14/01/2019) - version 1.5.11-4

At this time I do not need to install my drivers of my canon 7750 anymore.

Did you need to install the drivers before? Then do not do this anymore and see what happens out of the box.

I just did yet another clean install, update and pksyua then attempted to install the wireless printer from both localhost:631 and the printer manager, and both did not see the printer.

Trizen mg3500 to install the drivers, and now localhost:631 sees "Canon-MG3500-series_D8-49-2F-AE-EB-4C-1 " and a test print "cannot specify model number."

So the change is not working as advertised. Can not print.

See if adding the foomatic database of printer drivers can solve your issue.

You can install more if these two blue hightlighted packages do not work.
Reboot after such an installation

That did not fix it, I feel that it is not being wireless detected. On other arch based operating systems when I ask localhost to find new printers, I am given a selection of 3 to choose from (EVEN PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF ARCOLINUX) and the choice of Canon-MG3500-series_D8-49-2F-AE-EB-4C was never the right one. It was usually just Canon-MG 3500 and then the trick was to select the correct PPD, normally the CUPS+Gutenprint v5.3.1 , which in this case is the selection.

ifconfig shows

Code: Select all

lo no wireless extensions

if you type ifconfig in the terminal

I get this message
you should get something similar

Code: Select all

lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 65536
        inet 127.0.0.1  netmask 255.0.0.0
        inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128  scopeid 0x10<host>

        TX packets 158  bytes 7900 (7.7 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
Is that the lo you refer to?

I wonder if you need to run script 150 in ~/.bin/main.

Try that out.

That is what changed on our iso in the past.
