Introduction

This is a brief summary of the ways that the Canon iP4300 printer can be made to work with arch. As the printers are very similar, these techniques would very likely work with the iP4200 also.

Requirements

The following packages will very likely be needed:

  • cups
  • ghostscript
  • gsfonts

Install with:

# pacman -S cups ghostscript gsfonts

For information about setting up cups, refer to CUPS, however all that is really needed for the iP4300 is to start the cups daemon with:

# /etc/rc.d/cups start

and to add cups to the daemons line in /etc/rc.conf

Methods of getting the printer working

There are basically three options:

Proprietary Drivers

You will need the package rpmextract

# pacman -S rpmextract

Now create a directory somewhere and cd to it.
