How to install drivers for my cannon ip4000?
I need some help installing drivers for my printer. I'd like to warn you I'm new to linux.
I have located the drivers from canon japan at the following site:
The three rpm's that it seems I need are:
However, when I attempt to install the rpm's I run into the following problem:
[root@localhost ronlondre]# rpm -i bjfilter-common-2.50-2.i386.rpm bjfilter-pixusip4100-2.50-2.i386.rpm bjfilter-pixusip4100-lprng-2.50-2.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libpng.so.2 is needed by bjfilter-pixusip4100-2.50-2
Then, when I look for "libpng.so.2" on the ftp site I can't find it. I have discovered that the ubuntu community has successfully been able to install the drivers, and without "libpng.so.2". See this link for a reference: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=38995
However, I realize that mandriva is not a debian based distro. Therefore, the "how to" is not going to work for me. Furthermore, as I stated earlier I am a newbie to linux.
So the information available on the ubuntu forum is not sufficient enough in order for me to figure out how to install the drivers in mandriva.
Could someone please walk me through this. I really would like to install the drivers so I can print.
