I'm new to the rasberryPi / linux scene and need suggestions.
After running the command below & launching cups 2.2.1 I can see a list of printers after pressing the "add printer" button as shown here:
Local Printers: VNC Remote Printer (VNC Printer) HP Printer (HPLIP) Canon TS9000 series (Canon TS9000 series) HP Fax (HPLIP) Discovered Network Printers: Canon TS90202 (Canon TS9000 series) Canon TS9000 series 2.010 (Canon TS9000 series) Other Network Printers: Backend Error Handler Internet Printing Protocol (ipp14) AppSocket/HP JetDirect Internet Printing Protocol (ipp) LPD/LPR Host or Printer Internet Printing Protocol (ipps) Internet Printing Protocol (http) Internet Printing Protocol (https)
You can see in "Discovered Network Printers:" that it has found 2 printers on the network.
If I select the " Canon TS9000 series 2.010 (Canon TS9000 series) " printer it does have "socket://192.168.0.157" - great, so far so good !
The issue occurs after I press the "continue" button i receive an enormous/huge list of canon printers but none of these have the TS series. I have tried in vain for a week trying ones with simular names, hoping one might work. FYI, I did download and read the entire gutenprint manual but I am not knowledgeable enough to compile/build my own print drivers.
Which is why i ran:
apt-get install printer-driver-gutenprint
