Add CanonMFD (Secured & Unsecured) Print Queue for Linux

Darrel Bayani -

To setup the Canon MFD printer queues on a Linux computer, you will need to first open a terminal window. First, test to see that the CUPS daemon is running:

# /etc/init.d/cups status

If it isn't running, go ahead and start it:

# /etc/init.d/cups start

Use lpadmin to setup the secured and unsecured (respectively) print queues:

# /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p CanonMFD-Secure -E -v lpd://<SUNetID>@seq-uniflow/CanonMFD-Secure
# /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p <printer name> -E -v lpd://<SUNetID>@seq-uniflow/<printer name>

Use the list below to find the name of the closest Canon MFD to you to create the unsecured print queue:

CanonMFD-Durand-126b

CanonMFD-Durand-259

CanonMFD-Durand-337

CanonMFD-Huang-060

CanonMFD-SHR-119

    Hi Ryan-

    We apologize for the broken link in the KB article. I've explained in the KB the steps the script would have taken to setup the Canon MFD print queues.

    On Fedora 20 I had to install and run the system-config-printer utility to change the drivers to "Generic Postscript". 

    To install and run:

    $ sudo yum install system-config-printer
    $ system-config-printer
