Printing to Selphy 1300

Tue May 21, 2019 8:22 pm

Hi guys,

I'm a newbie to Raspberry Pi and having some trouble adding a printer, I've no doubt I'm making a really basic mistake but can't work out what and can't see a solution in past posts.

I have Raspberry Pi 3 model B and a Canon Selphy 1300 printer. I can find the printer and add it across the wireless network but when I try to print it says "cannot print incompatible images" on the printer. When I try to connect with USB, the printer won't even turn on - if I plug the USB in after the printer is turned on, CUPS just can't find the printer.

I've installed the latest instance of CUPS and I'm on Gutenprint 5.2.11. There isn't a driver for the Selphy CP1300, so I used Selphy CP910 which seems to be common.

Any help making this work would be hugely appreciated!

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,

I couldn't try myself (still waiting for my print media), but maybe these links are helpful:

* https://github.com/reuterbal/photobooth ... INSTALL.md
Gets Gutenprint 5.2.13 by adding a newer repository which contains drivers for SELPHY CP 1200 (similar to CP 1300).

* https://www.voss.earth/2018/08/31/kurzt ... verwenden/
Also got the CP 1300 running over wifi, and links the .ppd file used. However, this description is in German.

All the best,
Markus

The CP 1300 supports AirPrint, which is just a fancy implementation of Internet Printing Protocol. So it should work if you install IPP support:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install cups-ipp-utils system-config-printer
(leave off system-config-printer if you’re running from the terminal.)

Once that's installed, the system should find the printer automatically if it's on the same network. This doesn't work over USB.
