|This should be an easy one...
I found some information on installing this printer and installing software to use the Scanner I just purchased but I'm a little confused by it.
So far I've done this:
1. Go to ftp://download.canon.jp/pub/driver/bj/linux/
Download and install cnijfilter-common-2.60-1.i386.rpm
Download and install cnijfilter-ip4200-2.60-1.i386.rpm
2. start system-config-printer, choose Import PPD and choose /usr/share/cups/model/canonip4200.ppd
After the database rebuilds, choose Add Queue and follow the prompts. It does not auto-detect the model for me, but if you choose the Canon iP4200 driver manually, it should work fine.
3. To get scanner working apply patch at http://pixma-mp600.sourceforge.jp/
Here's where I'm a little thrown off. On the site it says:
2007/01/11 David Nicklay wrote latest patch. Thanks!
2006/11/06 Wittawat Yamwong wrote patch. Thanks!
apply latest patch to mp150-0.12.2.tar.bz2 and compile
Can I damage anything by starting over and install the .rpm files without uninstalling everything first or repeating one of the steps? The first time I tried to install XSane it didn't show up in the Launch menu. I uninstalled XSane, Sane, and started over. Now it says XSane Image Scanning Program in the Start menu but doesn't recognize my scanner. Do I just need to apply the patch alone or do I need to download and install mp150-0.12.2.tar.bz2 and then apply the patch?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
