Canon imageCLASS B&W Laser All-in-One Printer w/ ADF GNU/Linux Ed. (TPE-CANLSR269)

Canon imageCLASS B&W Laser All-in-One Printer w/ ADF GNU/Linux Ed. (TPE-CANLSR269)
Give your business the efficiency it deserves with a Canon imageCLASS printer offering feature-rich capabilities in a high quality, reliable copier, fax, and scanner that is ideal for any office environment.

Your professional quality documents are printed at speeds of up to 30 pages per minute in black and white. A laser all-in-one printer will save you time, paper, and related costs over traditional inkjet all-in-one printers.

This all-one-printer ships with support for PCL 5e/6 (similar to postscript) enabling printing support from near any operating system, distribution, or release via the use of a standard printer driver.

This model can be hooked up to one or many computers with support for 802.11 wireless technology, and a physical ethernet port, or a single computer using a USB cable.

Unlike most all-in-one laser printers on the market this Canon imageCLASS printer doesn't depend on proprietary and problematic drivers or OS-loaded firmware components. For scanning a back end sane-pixma driver component is utilized. This is a clone of the original Canon driver protocol, but with a complete set of source code available for optimal integration and support by your favorite GNU/Linux distribution. This is a production ready driver which is now being shipped in current releases of your favorite distribution for a seamless works out-of-the box experience. For some older long term support distributions and releases we have additional documentation on how to setup printing and scanning.

Supported distributions:

Trisquel 10
Ubuntu 20.04, 20.10, 21.04, 21.10, 22.04
Linux Mint 20, 20.1, 20.2, 20.3
Debian 11
Fedora 36

Future releases of your favorite distribution should work with this model more or less seamlessly out of the box as updated components get included that are needed for support. In the mean time scanning and printing are supported on this model without any additional software required beyond what is included in a normal install of Ubuntu 22.04 currently, but manual selection of an appropriate postscript driver is (for the moment) required.

Other distributions like Trisquel 10 & Debian 11 pick up the printer automatically, but require the purging of an outdated package and installation of a new package for scanning. We have all of this well documented for early adopters of this model.

Fedora 36 users will need to install a third party package and manually select a postscript printer driver. Again, a fairly easy proccess that we've documented here.

Older releases may still be supported beyond what is indicated above such as Ubuntu 18.04, Debian 9 & 10, etc, but may require manual updating of drivers or manual selection of the printer when running the add printer wizard.

For some of the most popular older distributions that are still supported we have detailed directions on our web site for getting the printer to work. This in some instances requires manually installing the appriate packages from a third party sources. This will enable support for scanning using the printer. There are also directions for starting the add printer wizard to add the printer such that you can print with it as well. If you have any questions about your favorite distribution and support contact us with the name of your distribution, version, and product you are interested in for more information.

Notes: Includes toner cartridges (starter), power cable, and all-in-one printer. USB and ethernet cables sold separately.
