Forgive the Manjaro newbie question but how do I get and setup drivers for the Canon PIXMA TR4520 printer? I tried the recommended drivers and some Canon drivers at System Settings > Printers with no luck. I don’t know where to go from here.
Activate AUR Support in Pamac Settings
Search and install
PS: first install
That package doesn’t mention that series or model. However, the source file seems to be the same as the
cnijfilter2 package, so either might work even though they’re both a newer version.
Canon’s website lists The IJ Printer Driver Ver. 5.70.
❯ pamac info cnijfilter2 | grep Description
Description : Canon IJ Printer Driver for Linux
THANKS! IT WORKED! Here are the steps I took:
Using PAMAC GUI:
pamac update -a
pamac search -a canon-pixma-ts5055-complete
pamac build canon-pixma-ts5055-complete
And as per build instructions, I ran these commands in a terminal:
sudo lpadmin -p TS5055 -m canonts5000.ppd -v <printer-address> -E
[I didn’t know what to use for <printer-address> in the above command]
But, I went to System Settings > Printer and found the following driver now present and chose it:
Canon TR4500 series ver.5.70
