Using 12.04 32bit; trying to setup Canon ip2600 printer.
When I try to install the Canon driver apt-get refuses to install it, instead replaces "libcupsys2" with newer "libcups2" creating a dependency problem since the Canon requires "libcupsys2". I have tried the standards: sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get clean, sudo apt-get autoremove, sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, sudo dpkg --configure -a, & sudo apt-get install -f but none make the printer work
I followed instructions at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1427098 to change the dependencys but that did not help, it generated error messages. Printer state is still: "idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/gstoraster failed"
At this point I am wondering if I should "apt-get remove" the cups package.
Any help would be appreciated
