I also can’t install and use Canon printer drivers. I have MF4410 model. It doesn’t work. Any solution for this?
What does the vendor’s site say
for that model?
They usually do offer drivers for Linux.
and if they do, they can be put to use - no matter whether the vendor only provides them for Debian or Redhat …
… I could have looked it up myself - but so could you …
Did you check the Arch Wiki?
This perhaps - or the related info?
Here is the Canon printer driver: i-SENSYS MF4410 - Support - Download drivers, software and manuals - Canon Europe
But no *.ppd file.
but of course there are .ppd files …
inside this archive
there are four others
two for Debian like systems (.deb)
two for Redhat like systems (.rpm)
one of each for 32 bit and 64 bit systems
and the same thing for ARM and MIPS64
each one with lots of .ppd files
… something more constructive:
since the package name
(the name of the archive that can be downloaded from the above link)
I’d be inclined to refer to this (the UFRII) section of the Arch wiki:
and first follow the advice there and first try to use this AUR package
or study the referenced PKGBUILDs to find out which of the AUR Packages
uses the Archive that was mentioned above.
as it turns out, from a quick comparison of the file name with the one used by the different PKGBUILDs
it is probably this one - the very first in the list:
This is the one I’d try to use first if I had this printer …
AUR (en) - cndrvcups-lb-bin solved my problem. But now printer prints slower than which Windows 11 was installed on the system.
nothing that I know of can be done about that
It’s the printer driver supplied by the vendor.
