Description cnfczn 2021-08-27 02:45:57 UTC
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Canon_ Pixma_ Printer found suggestions on canon printer driver support, hoping to support "imagerunner c3120"
Comment 1 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2021-08-28 17:20:17 UTC
net-print/cnijfilter does not exist in the gentoo repository. I don't know what that wiki page is referring to.

The wiki page https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Canon_Printer (renamed) is a try to gather in a single place all the information related to the driver packages, because Canon has an unusual versioning of the driver sources (non cumulative versions - one given printer model is supported by only one version).

@cnfczn: You should query the Canon support web site for the exact version of the driver sources, then search in the overlays if someone still maintains the relevant ebuild (https://gpo.zugaina.org).

I just added the "imageRunner C series" and the requested model in the wiki page.
