This tutorial shows how to install and configure a printer in the Slackware Linux 12.0 distribution. I used the following printers:

Canon Pixma iP1700
Canon Pixma iP4500.

Initial conditions

The Slackware Linux 12.0 distribution was installed with the "full" option, kernel (installed from sources, according to this tutorial);
The CUPS server is running on port 631:

cd /etc/rc.d chmod 0755 rc.cups ./rc.cups start

Required packages

Package download:

For Canon Pixma iP1700 printer: iP2200_Linux_260.tar.gz package
For Canon Pixma iP4500 printer: cnijfilter-common-2.80-1.i386.rpm and cnijfilter-ip4500series-2.80-1.i386.rpm packages.

Unpacking packages (Canon Pixma iP1700 printer only)

tar -zxvf iP2200_Linux_260.tar.gz

rpm2tgz * .rpm
