Canon appears to have added i686 , ARM Aarch64 and MIPS64 processor support since Version 5.30 .

A quick peek indicates that the PKGBUILD will need adjustments to work on those other architectures.

If you do run archlinux (or something close to it) on such a processor, have a supported printer and are willing to help test the adjustments, send me an email.

On some systems printing fails while a component of this driver consumes 100% CPU . SmashedSqwurl figured out this appears to be related to differences between archlinux jbigkit and debian jbigkit.

A workaround is to install .

The printers supported by this package are often networked.

problems can be in the cnrdrvcups-lb driver, but also with authentication over smb, vpn settings etc .

Troubleshooting those is often very hard.

Archlinux and derivatives are not supported by canon. Use whatever works for you, even if that means using canon drivers in a VM that runs a supported distro .

Main difference between 3.70 and 5.x versions :

3.70 has 64-bit & 32-bit code and needs to be built as a multilib application. Also it includes proprietary binaries from canon.

5.x is pure 64-bit and more parts of it are opensource.

People coming from cndrvcups-lb / cndrvcups-common-lb or cndrvcups-lb-bin :

You will have to start afresh.

remove the 3.70 versions and created printer definitions in cups
build this package and install
recreate your printer definitions

html documentation from canon is in /usr/share/doc/cnrdrvcups-lb

Thanks, Lone_Wolf. Yes, it turns out I was missing one library (libjbig-shared). Now everything works fine again.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2023-01-10 10:43 (UTC)

Do you have all optional depends installed ?

If yes, verify if it works in a canon-supported distro like ubuntu or fedora .

My MF4410 printer used to work with the older UFRII driver, but it doesn't work anymore with this one. When I send something to print it starts blinking as if receiving data, and then nothing happens.

Chrisqq :

The i-sensys MF633c is mentioned as requiring 3.70 and the model of your printer is so close it's probably the saem family as that one .

It's weird, but many things about canon printers on non-supported linuxes are weird.

chrisqq commented on 2022-12-14 03:55 (UTC)

Is it weird that I could not get this to work with my mf632cdw but the 3.70 one worked? Even canon's website is telling me to use the 5.60 with linux.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-10-16 14:21 (UTC)

Noted, It will probably take atleast a week before I can perform the update.

livix commented on 2022-10-16 11:50 (UTC)

version 5.60 is available from canon website:

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-08-27 10:41 (UTC)

correct, with gtk3 as makedepend gtk2 & loibglade are no longer needed.

updated, thab nks for the report pparidans

pparidans commented on 2022-08-25 08:01 (UTC)

Looks like the 5.50 version doesn't require gtk2 and libglade anymore (probably since the change requiring gtk3).

If confirmed, those dependencies could be removed, I guess.
