Laser HL-5140

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png USB port. No need to install driver on OpenSuse 11.4.

Laser HL-2140

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, 11.1 rpm installIcon-checked.png, install the two rpm(s) and follow the instruction here about CUPS >= 1.2 Brother Solutions Center : Brother Driver for Linux Distributions

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, Supported by the Brother HL-2060 Foomatic/hl1250 driver included in 11.2. No need to install 3rd party driver on 11.2.

Laser HL-2040

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, 10.0, 10.1 10.2, 10.3, 11.0, 11.1 rpm installIcon-checked.png, great as local usb printer and Linux print server, using either Samba or IPP. Read the article SDB:Brother HL2040 or this external HowTo and Notes.
For openSUSE 11.2 - Brother drivers don't work. Try this HowTo for USB printer server (eg. D-Link DVA-G3670B).

Laser HL-2240D

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, 11.4 rpm installIcon-checked.png, Brother drivers seems to work so pick them up from here. [1] All features should work, as it did with mine incl. auto duplex feature. Make sure to uninstall first any old driver that is installed previously.
If, for some reason, you have the problem that the duplex does not work, you need to try setup the printer via console. Doing that is easy. Just open your terminal, log in an root and load yast. It seems that yast over gui does not allow to setup specific settings. This should work, as it does in my case.

Since the Brother driver does only have two dpi settings, you can alter the setting to add the 300dpi to the ppd file which is located in /etc/cups/ppd/HL2240D.ppd. Edit it with you favorite editor.


For people that have printing problems i recommend to install the driver this way. Open a terminal and do su. Then type these commands in it. Just make sure you are in the same location as the driver.

  1. rpm -ihv --nodeps hl2240dlpr-2.1.1-1.i386.rpm
  2. rpm -ihv --nodeps cupswrapperHL2240D-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm
  3. rpm -qa | grep -e hl2240dlpr-2.1.1-1.386.rpm -e cupswrapperHL2240D-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm

After this open your browser and install and configure the printer via cups. Address should be this. http://localhost:631/printers/ Your printer should be listed. All you need to do is configure it and link the printerdriver that fits best in cups. I did the 2170W driver which works well. After that you should have perfect results.

Laser HL-1850

Canon

i320

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png. USB port, Must use Turboprint drivers

i450

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png. USB port, Works fine with Canon BJC-7004 Foomatic/bjc800

i550

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png, USB port, 10.0

Select model Canon BJC-7100 and change PPD file to Foomatic/bjc800.

PIXMA MP160

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, 12.2

Works with drivers shipped with openSUSE (gutenprint). By default, the colors are fade. To resolve it, set the driver option "Color Model" to CMYK instead of the default RGB. Other fine tunings are possible with the driver.

The Canon proprietary drivers do not work on openSUSE 12.2.

PIXMA MP190

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, 11.1

Works with driver packages from Canon. Yet to be tested with drivers shipped with openSUSE.

PIXMA MP210

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png

USB, openSUSE 11.0.

Selected MP180 from the available drivers list and it seems to work perfectly. Did not test scanning.

PIXMA MP220

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png

Selected MP180 from available printers and this worked OK as this is a multi function printer the scanner needs configuring separately. Though the Pixma SANE driver exists have not yet tried it.

PIXMA MP250

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png

Canon offers the drivers from their website. However, those drivers are extremely limited: there is no option to print in draft or quality mode, to use duplex printing, to print in greyscale etc.

PIXMA MP270

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png

The printer is autodetected but there are no drivers from cups. On the Canon website there are Linux drivers available. With Opensuse 11.1 and 11.4 they work fine. There is even a rpm package for the scanner with the application Scangearmp.

PIXMA MP495

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png

This printer is autodetected but there are no cups drivers available by default. Follow the procedure mentioned in the forums to get it working both wirelessly and via USB.

The scanner works as well and is mentioned in the same procedure.

PIXMA MP510

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png

Selected "BJC-8200 Foomatic/bj8pa06n" from the list, printer works ok.

PIXMA MP610/MP620/MP630

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png

See Canon PIXMA MP HOWTO for details.

PIXMA MP760

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port. Driver installed automatically under openSUSE 11.0 and printer works "out of the box". Not so under 11.1: printer is autodetected and identified correctly but no driver is found.

PIXMA i1600

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, Driver -- cnijfilter-ip2200 rpm available

PIXMA iP3000

Not Autodetected: Icon-cross.png Need to change the printer name from "Canon iP3000" to "Canon PIXMA iP3000"

The following comments were from a previous post:

  • I am using iP 3000 Canon printer with all of following drivers taken from the list:
  • ( presently installed Opensuse 10.3, formerly Suse 10.0 and openSuse 10.2 with same results
    1. 1 BJC7000-Foomatic/bjc800
    2. 2 BJC7004-Foomatic/bjc800
    3. 3 BJC7100-Foomatic/bjc800, all offering free choice of papersupply,
    4. 4 BJC8200-Foomatic/bj8pa06
  • Testprints and daily printwork are satisfactory.
  • 2 features are missing:
  • * indication of remaining colour level
  • * reverse side printing
  • Testing BJC 3000 showed prints that were out of scale.
  • Sept.11.2008: I added Modell Pixma iP 3000 from the list.
  • Result: Correct size,correct scale and reverseside ( duplex )printing is now possible.
  • Same results after having installed open Suse 11.0. and on openSUSE 11.1.kde3.5.10
  • (For openSUSE 11.1.:when installing with Yast the driverlist will appear only when entering just <Canon> instead of taking the autodetected printerversion)

As of March 2010 open SUSE 11.2 and Gnome :with Yast -if not autodetected just set Canon-with Pixma iP3000 cups+Gutenprintdrivers 5.0.2 and 5.0.2simplified are offered. Indication of colourlevel is not given.

Sept.2010: o.S.11.3 (KDE4.4.4 +Gnome):with Yast printer selfdetected , 4 drivers are offered, features as with o.S.11.2.

May 2011: o.S.11.4 (Gnome 2.3.2 + KDE4.6 ) : selfdetected , 2 Gutenprint drivers offer( ed , features as with 11.3 (all except indication of colourlevel ) I suggest to insert a new printhead instead of buying a new printer, it saves a lot of installation.

PIXMA iP4200

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png, USB port, Working with Canon's Filters

for 32 bit: pdc_2: recommend you go here

http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/P/search?model=PIXMA+iP4200&menu=download&filter=0&ca_os=Linux

and firstly download Canon Inkjet Print Filter Ver. 2.60 for Linux (Operation guide)[Explanation of the iP4200 operation (html file). Download as tar.gz to your desktop; right-click; open with file roller; select extract from file roller; a new folder on your desktop should be created; open that folder; open the next folder (ip4200; look in menu folder; select "guide_conte.htm" and it will open in your web browser; read the instuctions; (several times); follow them exactly;

then download the rpm Common package and the rpm Package for iP4200; the instructions will tell you to install the common first, and then the ip4200 package;

PIXMA iP4200 == 64 bit

try Gutenprint or the Canon drivers; (Canon as detailed above);

see here http://forums.opensuse.org/hardware/411351-ip4200-im-stuck.html

for more guidance; (you will need to make a symbolic link from the 64bit libraries to the 32bit libraries)log in as root: the # at the beginning signifies root log in # ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter

montfinal edited his ppd file: if you use the above symbolic link, that should work

Alternatively, to get the 32-bit drivers to work on an x86_64 OS, do the following:

  • 1) Load 32-bit RPMs for: popt, gdk, gtk, gtk-devel, libxml, libpng, libglib, libgmodule
  • 2) Load i586 RPM: libpng3
  • 3) Add a link BEFORE installing printer drivers. The install will create directories /usr/lib/cups/backend, driver and filter
  ln  -s  /usr/lib64/cups  /usr/lib/cups
  • 4) Install printer drivers (versions may be different) NOTE: libxml dependencies will be met by the 64-bit libxml libraries
  rpm -i --nodeps cnijfilter-common-2.60-3.i386.rpm
  rpm -i --nodeps cnijfilter-ip4200-2.60-4.i386.rpm
  • 5) /etc/init.d/cups restart
  • 6) Use "Yast- Hardware- Printer" to add your printer
  • 7) Use "Yast- Hardware- Printer- Edit- All Options..." to set "papersize=letter"

P.S. For diagnostics, set "loglevel debug" in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, restart cups, "tail -f /var/log/cups/error_log", and print

PIXMA iP4500

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png, USB port, Not working! Works only with TurboPrint or GutenPrint 5.1 (600*600 dpi max). Tested on openSUSE 11.0, 11.1, 11.2 M6.

PIXMA iP4600

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png, Print Server, 11.1
Download Canon driver from Canon's Website. Install the required RPM for the series of printer as root in the terminal (rmp -Uvh ./cnijfilter-ip4600series-3.00-1.i386.rpm) and if the printer is local the common file (cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.i386.rpm). This should add everything you require. For a print server install, ignore the common RPM file and extract the common .tar.gz file. Used CUPS via web browser (localhost:631) to install and add PPD location manually. Photo printing from top try, normal printing from envelope tray and CD printing yet to be tested.

PIXMA iP4850

Pixma iP4850==autodetected on oS 11.2, oS 11.3, oS 11.4,all with KDE and Gnome
   Load Canon-drivers from their website (iP 4800 series for Debian and Redhat) and install
     into Yast. Testprint produces the wellknown CUPS Printer Test Page.
    The same is working under o.S.12.1.(installed on Oracle VMBox Win7)

Indication of colourlevel is not available. dpi 600; other features as with windows are available (Page size,paper type,paper source-cassette,rear tray or automatic-,Duplex/reverseside printing ).

It's not possible to print envelopes neither separately nor in combination with letters: the address- and senderfields are not printed at their proper positions or are turned by 90°. To obtain correct envelopes You have to swing to Windows. ---Using Libre Office 3.4 on Linux and on Windows likewise.----

Did solve the problem be changing the menu-entries of >Properties of printer >Device> printer language from PDF which is default to Postscript ( level of driver ).

Printer driver available for oS 11.2 ,11.3 ,11,4 to be installed by Yast: Printer self detected as Canon iP 4800 series. Offered driver Canon iP48oo:ppd

Pixma iP4850: on o.S. 12.1( installed on Oracle VMBox (win7) autodetected installed Canon Drivers iP 4800 series for Debian and Redhat with Yast.

                   on o.S.12.2 installed for dual boot with Win7: autodetected installed with above mentioned Canon Drivers

however You have to install libtiff3 to solve a conflict.

                  on o.S.12.3 installed for dual boot with Win XP: autodetected and running with the offered Gutenprint drivers,
                  no need to install the Canon drivers ( May 2013 ).

The same applies for oS 13.1 (Dec. 2013 )

PIXMA iP5000

Canon LBP series

for a 32 bit OpenSuse install

the printer drivers WILL work; if you follow the Canon instructions;

http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0031118.asp

but firstly install the howto guide; guide-capt-1.8xE.tar.gz from the above page; I suggest downloading to your desktop; open with file roller, and then extract from the file roller menu to your desktop; that creates a new folder, called guide-capt-1.8 and inside that click on manual_contents.html and an excellent howto opens up in your web browser; read it several times;

then follow the instructions; item 5 talks of "Register the printer (PPD) with the print spooler." You need to know the name of the ppd file; use gnome search or the KDE equivalent; some end in J, others K; identify yours; likely to be in /usr/share/cups/model; eg for LBP5000 it will be CNCUPSLBP5000CAPTK.ppd

continue to follow the instructions; Canon say in item 7 "Start ccpd daemon.Enter the following command. # /etc/init.d/ccpd start" this gives it for this use of the printer

and very importantly: Note:* It would be convenient to set ccpd daemon to start automatically when Linux starts up. You do this manually each time by typing in the above command, or for automatic, have suse insert the service

cd /etc/init.d

sudo insserv -v ccpd

FOR 64BIT SUSE

Stylus DX4400

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png USB, SUSE 11.0

Although there are official drivers out for it, see [3] they do not work. You can get the print function working through the use of the DX3850 drivers but be warned it's behaviour is strange. Often it will shut itself down when it's prompted to print and then start the printing when turned on again. I doubt the ink level warnings are working properly so it might damage the printheads if you keep printing with a low ink level. Scanner does not work at all.

Autodetected: Icon-checked.png USB, SUSE 12.1

only works with drivers (RPM) from Epson site

Stylus DX4450

Stylus S20

autodetected: Icon-cross.png Does not work with the drivers supplied with OpenSuse 11.2. It requires Gutenprint drivers newer than the supplied 5.0.2. You can get the most recent release from OpenPrinting. Just download the RPM and install it with rpm -i openprinting-gutenprint-5.2.4-1lsb3.2.i486. Make sure you have the lsb package installed. Once you have the Gutenprint drivers ready, use the CUPS webinterface to add the Stylus S20 because yast fails with some obscure error messages.

HP Tools works if package installed, but you might have to set the device up using the hp setup program even if you install via Yast or CUPS. For Yast & CUP, use socket://printer's_ip_address:9100, inserting the ip address of the printer on your network followed by the colon and 9100 port (hp setup detects the printer by just entering the ip address without the socket number).

Works perfectly. (incuding duplex and optional paper slot)

Autodetected: Icon-cross.png, USB, Suse 11.1

Unfortunately yast doesn't find a driver for the printer. (see details below) The trick is to

- get the ppd-file for the printer from http://www.linuxprinting.org

- start the web interface to cups: http://localhost:631/

- install the printer using "Manage Printers"

- if asked for the printer name, use the ppd file (loaded with the button - cups only listed the newer FS1030D model)

Details for yast: The printer is detected, but no driver found.

Trying to install PPD from vendor CD: PPD seems to be parsed and accepted, but yast still complains about missing driver.

Driver included on setup disk problematic for pre-10.2 Use ML200 instead.

openSUSE 10.3 fully supports printer using CUPS' own ML2010 drivers. My printer was connected via the Netgear WGPS606 printer server. Configuration is as follows: Protocol: lpd://nnn.nnn.nnn.hhh/L1 (where nnn.nnn.nnn.hhh is the printer server's IP address); L1 is the USB port number on the print server.

CLP-550N

works well by copying the clp550n.ppd file to /usr/share/cups/model/samsung and setup as new usb or network conected printer with yast. (the 192.168.1.xxx address can be obtained from the printer menu).

CLP-610ND

the samsung CD setup works but dosn't always find the networked printer (autosetup with USB connection not checked). if the auto setup finishes but fails to find the network address, it can be fixed by editing the printer with yast or by setting up as a new printer with yast and using the CLP-610splc.ppd file from the CD.

CLX-2160

It works in OpenSuse 10.2 and 10.3 with Samsung Unified Driver 2.00.97. In OpenSuse 10.3 you MUST mount usbfs. In OpenSuse 11.0 edit a line for usbfs in fstab and mount it in a console or by a shell script

CLX-3185
