Fedora and Canon IP1700 printer --Still Unsolved!

I am one of the many people who are having many problems getting the Canon ip1700 pixma printer to work with Linux. I think that it can be done.

I've followed every step that I could on this page:

http://shaunak.ws/journal/setting-ca...e-fedora-linux


Everything goes fine until I enter the username and password on CUPS, using my "root" and my root password. I get this annoying google chrome thing, "aw, snap, this page can't load..."

I really need to use my printer, so can anyone help me out with this?

Try this...
Code:
su
system-config-printer
Then Server, New, Printer. No promises.

Re: Fedora and Canon IP1700 printer not talking

I installed a Canon MP600 in Fedora 13 using CUPS. Make sure you have CUPS installed.

I recently had a similar problem in Mandriva because I entered the wrong password once. CUPS, or rather I should say my browser wouldn't let me enter the correct password on subsequent attempts. IIRC, I had to close the browser and then reopen it again and go the the CUPS browser address: http://localhost:631/

That didn't do anything for me.


Regarding CUPS, I emptied cache and cookies, closed the browser, and still can't do anything with CUPS. How do I make sure it is installed?

Go to System > Administration > Add/Remove Software. When applet opens, make sure the filter is set to 'Only Installed'. Type CUPS in the search box and click on Find.

Alternatively, from Terminal type in: rpm -qa *cups* and press Enter.

Nope, nothing.

I guess I should just trash the printer and get a new one. This is my first big failure in the linux world.

Re: Fedora and Canon IP1700 printer not talking

I am having a similar issue with my canon ip2600. It installs in CUPS and I can even send a test job to it, but after the printer lights blink a couple of times, nothing happens. No error codes or anything - the computer sees the job as being completed. I am currently running Fedora 14 x86_64. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.

Thanks
