Yep, it works with me as well. Great work!

I already am in the "scanner" group so I think the only solution is the udev rules.

Cippaciong: I've a similar rule already in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/53-sane.rules. Only difference there is that the group is scanner instead of lp.
Maybe your problem would just have been fixed by adding yourself in the "scanner" group instead of needing to add a custom rule?

I created the file 10-mp620.rules in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/ with this simple rule:

ATTR{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTR{idProduct}=="172f", MODE:="0660", GROUP:="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"

Glad to hear I could help you out :-)
And just noticed my email address in my account setting was set to one that does not work anymore for years. That may explain why I never got notified of your previous comments here...

I'm also using the printer over LAN (wired in my case).
Maybe I could add an udev rule to the package if you could provide me the correct values?

Here I am as promised with a quick report:
I was able to print on:
1) Arch64 via wireless connection (not tested USB)

2) Arch i686 via USB connection (not tested wireless) but only after struggling a bit with udev as explained here:

3) Chakra i686 via USB connection (without libpng15 patch) still only after udev tweaking

I wasn't able to print only on Chakra i686 via wireless connection obtaining the well knonw "Failed to read side-channel request" error. I hope I could test this on Arch soon to figure out whether it's only a problem of Chakra or not.

This is a great news (really great, actually)!
I'll test the new driver as soon as possible an I can test it on i686 system too; I'll let you know if everything run smooth.
Thanks for your work. =)

A very long overdue update... It seems the printing however kept on working for a long time for me while you could not compile it anymore.

Anyway, The 2.80 driver does not compile anymore as was figured out already by you guys. The 3.00 does compile, but does not have the binary package for the MP620. So I made a mix of them. Using the source from 3.00 and the binary packages from 2.80. I had to hack a bit of the source however to get it linked correctly. That means it could potentially do strange things.
But it does compile, and I can print with it! (x64 that is, don't have an i686 system to test)

I see. There is also the cnijfilter-common package.

cups-bjnp is just the canon network protocol for printing. It's not that you can use it if you don't have the correct printer driver installed.
I used to have both cups-bjnp and this package installed to have my printer working.
