CUPS says the job completes, but nothing ever prints out

Forgot to mention that I can print from my smartphone, so it must be a communication or permissions problem with the desktop-2-printer link ???

TIA, Tommy

Hi Tommy, not your exact model, but they are all pretty much the same. This might work for you.

Here is the package that got my TS3151 working. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/canon-pixma-lt7500-complete
Don’t be concerned that it is not your model, it’s just a placeholder and you can select your exact model in CUPS later in the installation process.
You have some reading ahead of you, but you will succeed if you persist with it.
Here is another helpful link https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/CUPS/Printer-specific_problems
and a general guide on printer setup. https://discovery.endeavouros.com/printers/printers/2021/03/

Finally got it working with both smartphone & desktop …

After trying several combinations of drivers & CUPS filters, I found a working pair…

Driver= drvless.ppd
Driver version= 1.28.15
Make & Model= Canon TS3500 series,driverless,cups-filters 1.28.15

hope this helps someone else
