Current printer. Canon ImageRunner Advanced C2020.

  • Ink
    • Cartridges are about $140 for a variety pack of 4: Toner Cartridge Set for Canon ImageRunner Advance C2020 C2030 3782B003AA GPR36
    • Toner Refills (We've never tried this) are about $30 less, but come with risk of breaking the cartridge or making a mess



Compatible cups driver: Canon imageRunner C2550 Foomatic/Postscript. Double sided printing works.

Cups may also display a 2020 and 2020i driver, but these don't work.

How to use the Makers Local printer in a few easy steps:

Standard disclaimer, only tried on Debian, WOMB, YMMV, and Good Luck.

Follow these links to Brother:

The lpr drivers[1], and the cups wrapper[2].

and select the appropriate (MFC-7220) files. You need both. Try to get the latest ones from thier site with those links, but if that doesn't work, use these[3]

Install the LPR drivers first, using dpkg. This should complete without errors.

The second package requires this directory, but does not create it, and fails. Do this, as a workaround before installing the cups wrapper:

mkdir /usr/share/cups/model

Then install the cupswrapper package with dpkg.

After this step you should be able to see the printer in gnome print dialogs, and it should work over USB.

To make it work over the network (wired only): Go to http://localhost:631 to configure cups. Go to the printers tab, and click modify printer. Set it up to work on appsocket/hp jet direct, and set the URI to socket://

Try printing.
