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 all components in it come with sourcecode. Some parts are still proprietary, but atleast we can build them ourselves now.

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

hnws, sounds like you managed to make the changes needed to build with gcc 10?

If so, please email me your PKGBUILD (address is in the PKGBUILD).

hnws commented on 2020-05-20 02:46

As now gcc upgraded to 10.1, we need -fcommon to compile this package. And for this to happen, we need -e 's:${_cflags}:"${_cflags}":g' \ to quote the cflags when generating the make.Arch.

With all these being done, I am still struggling with the 100% cpu usage issue. The code is very simple, it's pending a read from a file descriptor and it's reading non-stop. But I am not sure who should pass data to it.

May not be related to all issues we have with Canon drivers, but I fixed my printing problem (and 100% one core CPU usage) by creating the file /etc/samba/smb.conf. Of course, my printer is shared via Samba.

Thanks. Yes, I've installed them before

@redeyed Making sure Libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo are installed have helped.

redeyed commented on 2020-04-16 12:14

I wonder, how can I investigate any logs?

redeyed commented on 2020-04-16 12:09

I've tried all the packages from AUR and only custom way made it to communicate. But it still doesn't print :(

Lone_Wolf commented on 2020-04-16 12:07

You could also have tried which does use the debian package and adjusts it to run on archlinux.

redeyed commented on 2020-04-16 11:50

I downloaded deb package from here

Installed it using debtap and pacman

Printer started to response now, but hangs and shows on printer's LCD "printing..."
At least its started to communicate somehow.

Don't know what happened yesterday, but I tried it now and passed. Thanks!
