Package request: drivers for Cannon Pixma MG2450 printer+scanner
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

The printer also has an integrated scanner (after installing Simple Scan it doesn't work without them) so drivers are needed for scanner too.

All packages (source, rpm, deb, 32-bit and 64-bit for both printer and integrated scanner) are provided by the manufacturer on the official site: HERE.

I have uploaded/attached the source packages.

Printer:

{F15055}

Scanner:

{F15056}

And also on dropbox: HERE.

They are also present in AUR as cnijfilter-common-mg2400 - HERE - and cnijfilter-mg2400series - HERE.

Could I have them available for Solus?

Maybe it is useful to know that when trying to install in Manjaro, these dependencies were needed:

gutenprint
foomatic-db-gutenprint
foomatic-db-gutenprint-ppds
foomatic-db
foomatic-db-engine`

I have found that in fact just installing cups-devel (available trough Software Center) is enough to make Cannon Pixma MG2450 printer work.

Also, the scanning with the same machine does not require supplementary drivers (while it may be affected by a permissions problem: https://solus-project.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6156)

That means that this post should be deleted (I don't know how to do it though).
