Turboprint and Selphy printers

Post by broadstairs » Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:09 am

I noticed that TP 2.45 now supports some Canon Selphy printers. I have a CP900 which is functionally equivalent to both CP820 and 910 when connected by USB. I have installed this TP release and despite it finding the connected printer locally and allowing me to add it I am unable to print to the printer, I get USB Error -1 showing on the monitor and says in the printer queue that the printer is not connected - which it is. If I connect via CUPS to the same printer it prints OK. So it looks very much like there is a problem with this new support.

the Canon SELPHY CP900 printer uses the same cartridges and paper but unfortunately it is not compatible with the CP820 / CP910 printer driver. TurboPrint for Linux currently doesn't support the SELPHY CP900.
