So close and yet so far! I can makepkg and install this (though there are compilation warnings), and CUPS now finds my printers as (e.g.) "cnijbe2://Canon/?port=usb&serial=123456" instead of just "usb://Canon/G2000%20series?serial=123456&interface=1", but nothing happens when I try print the CUPS test page to the "cnijbe2:" version of the printer; systemd logs "Started Process Core Dump". Invoking "cnijlgmon3" causes this to be shown:

direct cnijbe2://Canon/?port=usb&serial=123456 "Canon G2000 series" "USB Printer #1 with status readback for Canon IJ"

but nothing happens, and the exit status is 2. There are no manpages, and I'm at a loss as to how to debug this. I'm a decent sysadmin but definitely no C programmer. Is this software known to work on a 64-bit machine?

(The "standard" (Gutenprint?) driver and PPD file work, but the photo colours are dull.)

@zerophase: I'm getting it in the print dialog under "status" -- maybe it's only required/used by certain printers? I have a canon TR8520.

@prurigro When are you getting that error? I'll add cmdtocanonij3 to the package, but I'm not having any issues with printing currently.

prurigro commented on 2018-04-24 02:21

I'm getting the following error: File "/usr/lib/cups/filter/cmdtocanonij3" not available: No such file or directory

It's caused because a new part of the upstream isn't included in the package, and it's resolved by adding cmdtocanonij3 equivalents to each occurrence of cmdtocanonij2, as in the following PKGBUILD update: https://ncry.pt/p/VKNn#zO936MpTjbqtBSPIKJzcNPI06ngMhqbOssEBOnwyJ0w

Thanks for the package!

Let me see if the new version works with my printer. If it doesn't I'll pass ownership to whoever needs the current driver.

Appears to work fine with the Canon PIXMA G4200 inktank printer. Installed package, start CUPS, add printer from http://localhost:631/
