I'm trying to get a Canon ip1600 printer working over USB on a new
Mint 11 laptop install.
I've followed the info as kindly offered here by Norman but currently
the printer icon in the bottom panel shows 'cups-insecure-filter'.
I downloaded the files and installed them in the order given and saw
I got into CUPS server and went to as the ip1600 as per the walk
through but it wasn't listed so went for the ip2200 instead as
suggested. This may indicate the problem? When you print it does get
into the queue but it shows as 'Stopped'.
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04a9:10a0 Canon, Inc. PIXMA iP1600 Printer
alan@Qosmio ~ $ lpstat -p -d
printer Canon_iP1600 is idle. enabled since Wed 07 Dec 2011 19:43:53
printer Print_to_PDF is idle. enabled since Thu 16 Aug 2007 23:15:50
system default destination: Canon_iP1600
I'm having to do all this remotely and only for a short window in the
evenings so it's not that easy to faultfind.
Any thoughts re what it could be please?
Cheers, T i m
p.s. To the nutjobs ... just remember this is yet another Linux
install I've brought into the world and the guy is very happy with it.
It would just be so much nicer if he could print from it and it would
stay on for longer that 5 mins when on battery power (when it runs for
~4 hours on battery on XP).
