UFR II Linux Driver Binaries in arm64 Architecture (Model# MF216n)

Hi,

 

I need to print and scan from ARM based SBC running debian/raspbian/armbian. The current Linux driver package "linux-UFRII-drv-v510-usen" doesn't have them. May I request the built binaries under armhf or arm64 architecture? Is this foreseeable in the near future if not immediately available?

 

Thanks

Hi hftsai256,

 

The drivers for Linux are provided as-is.  We are unable to provide support for Linux due to how different each installation may be.

No and this is a horrendous. irresponsible reply. Name one major distribution that is not using CUPS as its printer backend.

I agree. With Google Cloud Print being deprecated in six weeks, many people would like to turn to an always-on raspberry pi, running CUPS to serve the printers.

 

This is especially important since our kids often use Chromebooks and would like to print at home.

 

I understand that it's Google's fault, but can you provide the sources for the UFR drivers so Linux users can compile their own?

 

?

Hi, yes many of my printers are Canon imageclass lbp6030b and we are trying to move them all to the server so we can print from anywhere. So far I cannot find any help on all the links and pages I have visited so far. There should be a responsible reply from Canon and Canon should write a driver for each of the printers for Arm-based Linux devices.

I cant find LPB6230dw on CUPS server. I am using raspberry pi 3b+ for running my printer servers. Do you have any support to run LBP6030b via server on raspberry pi 3b+

Hello Zaaark,

 

Unfortunately we do not have any CUPS drivers for the LBP6230dw. We currently do not have any support options for the Raspberry Pi operating system.
