Try with a cable instead of WiFi.... sometimes that is needed first. It might help if you offered a model number too.This is what I get: "There is no driver for the OS Version you selected. The driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver."
When I attempt to add a printer it doesn't detect it.
1) Sorry, but I did not see any tab or button to enter a new question.@Jim43
1) Please don't add your problem to the end of somebody else's thread. Start your own thread instead.
2) What is the model of Canon printer?
3) What distro are you using?
4) Quite often when somebody says they do no support Linux, it does not necessarily mean their product does not work with Linux, it means they do not provide advice about using their product with Linux.
The make and model of the printer I am trying to install is: Canon PIXMA TS9520as pop is loosely based on Ubuntu, you could try the link below, I cannot guarantee it will work as Pop is a hacked about version of Ubuntu
Linux is the operating system with more kinds of packages. Surely, if you have used Debian, you should know the file type .deb, or maybe, if you have usedwww.linuxandubuntu.com
As I said it is based on a cut down version of Ubuntu, but with added Pop coding, consequently not all the commands we use for Ubuntu will workSystem76 System76 Thelio, Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS (from personal trial, this OS is very similar to Ubuntu), 64-bit.
Generally you extract the contents of the file cnijfilter2-5.70-1-deb.tar.gz and you will get a folder called cnijfilter2-5.70-1-deb now open that folder and you should see an install.sh file to run that right click and open a terminal inside that folder and run1) Sorry, but I did not see any tab or button to enter a new question.
2) The printer is a Canon PIXMA TS9520
3) The distro in use is Pop_Os! from System76. And yes, the same request has been submitted to them.
4) The last time I talked to a 'Tech Support' agent at Epson, that agent told me in no uncertain terms that Epson did not, and would not, support Linux. Shortly after that phone call, the printer started refusing to do some specific print jobs like printing from a web site (as to print an order confirmation or a receipt), then it would also not print a file from the local computer. All the time, all drivers on the computer have been kept up-to-date regularly.
I am simply trying to find the commands needed to install a *.tar.gz file that is the driver file for the new Canon printer.
sudo bash ./install.sh
