    Unable to install Canon Pixma MP640 printer in Ubuntu Karmic Koala

    I have installed Karmic Koala on my computer. I am looking to install Canon Pixma MP640 printer on the same. But due to some unknow reason am not able to do the same. Every time i try to install, it gets failed. Can you tell me what should I do to get it done successfully ?

    Also tell if it is possible to get printing support over the Wi-Fi connection? Thanks a lot in advance.

    You can try a below mentioned solution and let me know whether it worked for you.

    Click on Applications, Click on Accessories and Launch Terminal. Now run,
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libxml1 libglade0 libpng3 libtiff4
    now move to directory where you downloaded the file.
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    After that run following command
    Code:
    tar zxvf cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-x-i386-deb.tar.gz

    Above mentioned command untar the downloaded packages and install the same by using following,

    Code:
    cd cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-x-i386-deb
    sudo ./install.sh
    If above mentioned thing does not work, simply try to install package manually. Once you completed with the installation simply run following command on browser Windows.

    It would launch CUPS on the screen and click on ‘adding printers and classes’, here you will get option that allow you to configure and setup printer as per your requirement.

    In canon debain package, you should use install.sh script, you will need to modify first line of amd64.
    • After that setup program would search as well as install printer on your computer.
    • In install.sh modify ‘dpkg –iG’ line to ‘dpkg -iG --force architecture'.
    • After that execute script by running following,

      Code:
      sudo ./install.sh

    Downloaded drivers packages and untar the same by executing
    Code:
    tar xvf cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-1-i386-deb.tar.gz
    Now move to directory where package was stored
    Code:
    cd cnijfilter-mp640series-3.20-1-i386-deb/packages/
    Remove all the dependencies by usingvidebcontrol
    Code:
    Depends:
    Now install the following
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i  sudo dpkg -i cnijfilter-common_3.20-1_i386.modfied.deb cnijfilter-mp640series_3.20-1_i386.modfied.deb
    Checkout /var/log/cups/error_log directory and see whether any issue is reported over there.
    Code:
    chown root:root *file*
    After that you will be able to complete with installation of printer on your system.
