I have a printer Canon PIXMA iP3600. Following you steps this was installed without problems, but it doesn't print. The test page is sent to the printer and I can see it in the spool, but it never prints.
What can be wrong? I run Ubuntu x64.

I found the solution here:
All is OK there, only that the installation of the deb drivers must be done with the command: sudo dpkg -i --force-all *.deb
The procedures I used forced the printer (Canon PIXMA iP3600) to work, but I met problems to install other soft because of the unmet dependencies. Finally I run the command the system recommended:
sudo apt-get -f install
without any packages and accept everything. This corrected the problem of dependencies but deleted the printer drivers I installed before (off course!).
Finally, the solution was to let the system install the printer when a connect it to the computer and then going in to "System Settings" > Printing rigth click in the printer, select Propierties adn then, in the line of Make and Model click on Change. The system will offer a lot of drivers (in my case I selected Canon list), so I tried all the PIXMA ip drivers up than 3000 (The system recommends PIXMA ip3000 but it doesnt work for the ip3600). Finally the driver PIXMA ip4600 worked for me, it prints the Test page.
