Hey! I’m trying to set up a printer, and I’ve determined it’s model and all[Canon PIXMA TR7520], but I couldn’t find a driver for it in the GUI settings for it in gnome-settings. I’ve supposedly found a Linux driver here, and I’m trying to do it from source as they don’t have any precompiled binaries for Arch-based systems.
That’s that then, I won’t nag anything on – if you know how I can build it or you know if there actually is a driver somewhere let me know.
Tried that originally actually, didn’t have any dice with it.
Not the solution I was looking for or thinking of, but sending it to my phone to print works for now
Looking at that AUR package anyway, people in the description aren’t saying it works with the TR7520)isn’t listed at a compatible printer if I recall), I can’t think of why it it wouldn’t but it isn’t
Ubuntu also did something to make it work, as it did on that – just gotta find out what.
Yep, just confirmed it’s installed – I’ll have to try a bit later to see if the printer works now for some reason( didn’t change anything, but idk), let me know if you know anything else that might help.
Hi. I’ve looked up the link to Canon site. According to it you need
IJ Printer Driver Ver. 5.50 for Linux
File to download is cnijfilter2-source-5.50-1.tar.gz
Arch wiki page on printer drivers refers to cnijfilter2 package in AUR (AUR (en) - cnijfilter2)
Source for that package is cnijfilter2-source-6.00-1.tar.gz (newer version)
So I suggest to install cnijfilter2 from AUR and check if the printer works.
Otherwise you can try cnijfilter2-bin package (older version from Debian package cnijfilter2-5.10_amd64.deb).
