View Full Version : Canon bjc-4400 and Install fail...
I try few days to install my printer, Canon bjc-4400 but not still working. I'm installed cups-printing system from packets and ports-system, same result and installed gimp-print packet from many different format. Anyway, both not working together, so I try install printer with KDE's Control Center, I selected (and check that CUPS really work) cups fo printing system but gimp-print drivers never found that list. WHY?
What missing in my systems or what I doing wrong, my os is PC-BSD 0.75 (I really like it and I wont go to back kubuntu!!!) .
So folks, any ideas or must I burn my canon and buy better one???

I can't help you with that one sorry. I just wanted to let you know that Kris has been working on printing, and I hear we "MAY" get some good news soon.
Thanks sblevin about that information, I still try to do something to that problem but I'm not a hard hacker so maybe I kick my ass for nothing...
Are you able to communicate with he printer at all? Does it start to try to print and stop etc etc
Yep, only way to printing something out of my system is :
#cat myfile.txt > /dev/lpt0
So, only text is that I can printing and not allways working right, sometimes it say that device /dev/lpt0 is busy...!!!
Anyway, I hope that in future PC-BSD version is little better support to that system... or I do it myself sometimes (I really hope that I dont need to do it... I'm so buzy allready... teaching etc.)

The only way i have been able to get the gimp-print drivers to showup was to ensure that i built gimp-print from ports with:
make install WITH_CUPS=yes
Maybe running this on the gimp-print port will work for you.,
make reinstall WITH_CUPS=yes
cp cups.sh.sample cups.sh
chmod 755 cups.sh
point your browser to localhost:631
configure cups there, and then open KDE Print manager and set as default and ensure that cups is shown as your interface.
Have had pretty good success with this method here.
>make install WITH_CUPS=yes
YES, at last, that working, and working GREAT!!!!
I read those codelines many times and I thinking it was default option and it's on!!!
How wrong I'm (again...). I try few times command: install make clean in ports but newer with those parameters...
Really many THANKS to you TheBman
