12.04 & Canon printer

I have upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04 stepwise through intermediate
upgrades. Now I find that my Canon iP4200 printer will not respond to
data sent by Ubuntu. The iP4200 has always responded previously (since
9.04) although never properly in colour (I must switch to MS XP). The
next printer that I buy will, hopefuylly, sovle that problem.
Meanwhile I have done as much troubleshooting as I can find on the
system without result. 
I'm sure that there is a simple answer but I need help.
Thank you.

Re: 12.04 & Canon printer (Geoffrey)

Hi Geoffrey,

I have a Canon MX350 printer which I managed to get working by downloading drivers for Linux from the Canon web site. I checked the web site and there are drivers for your printer, but I notice that they only have rpms.

There is a program called alien that converts rpms to deb files. Check out the tutorial at:

Cheers,
Peter

Re: 12.04 & Canon printer

I believe the drivers now get installed with cups, so you should delete your existing printer and re-install it.  If the drivers have not been included then you should look at Michael Gruz PPA on launchpad to see if the driver is there:

https://launchpad.net/~michael-gruz/+archive/canon

though it seems that all of these drivers now get installed with cups (I don't think Michael has updated the PPA to work with 12.04 because of the cups update)

Re: 12.04 & Canon printer (Geoffrey)

Hi all,

I take everything back. I haven't printed to my Canon for quite a while and when I just tried it in Ubuntu 12.04 the computer acts like it is printing - i.e. no error messages but nothing is actually printed - same problem as Geoff. Scanning function still works though.

Cheers,
Peter

/etc/apt/sources.list.d issue

Hi all,

I have some ppa that are getting a 404 failed to get. I don't need them at all but
when I update the are starting to annoy me.  I have found them in the file path below
sudo vim  /etc/apt/sources.list.d but I cant remove them from the file. It asks me to do the following

Re: /etc/apt/sources.list.d issue

Hi John,

A ppa can be removed simply through the Ubuntu Software Centre. Once you have the Software Center open Software Sources from the edit menu. Click on the edit tab. Now you can click on a software source and remove it by clicking Remove or simply uncheck it if you want to just disable it. No need to go editing config files.

I hope that helps.

Josh.

This is because /etc/apt/sources.list.d is not a file, but a
directory.  If you cd into the directory you will see a list of files,
which should be named similarly to the ppa you want to remove.  Just
remove the file, or edit it to comment out the line you no longer need
and you should be done.  Or you can open up Update Manager, click on
Settings, then Other Software, and remove the PPA from there as well.

Thanks,
Brad

Apologies, I appear to have dropped the ball on this one as it's been
a week without any action. I think it would appear the June 23/24
might be a bit ambitious given the current timing. Is anyone else
thinking of holding an event other than the Brisbanites? As far as a
date for the event, would it be better to line up with school holidays
again or something else?

In Brisbane I was thinking we should alternate north and south side
like the release parties. If we line up with the release parties then
we should organise this on the north side. Is there anyone on the
northside familiar with the Chermside library
(http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/facilities-recreation/libraries/opening-hours-locations/chermside-library/index.htm)
that would be willing to check it out and possibly book the meeting
room?

Now as far as promotion goes we could try to repurpose some of the
materials at spreadubutu -
http://spreadubuntu.org/en/get-materials/recent - to make it a bit
easier.

Team Meeting tomorrow night

Good evening all,

Just a quick reminder, tomorrow night is the scheduled June meeting.
The agenda and details are available at
http://loco.ubuntu.com/meetings/ubuntu-au/391/detail/ if you don't use
IRC much you might prefer to join in via your web browser at
webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-au

I've added the open day events to the agenda to see if we can get some
people interested in helping set some up. I'm more than happy to help
mentor new people in how to organise and run the events. They are
really simple to do, just sometimes all it takes is someone "who's
been there" to give you a bit of reassurance.

If anyone else has anything they'd like to discuss please feel free to
add it on the agenda list. See you there!
