http://ubuntuforums.org – Friend of mine running Ubuntu 8.04 on a new Dell Inspiron desktop. Bought a Canon Pixma IP3600 printer. We found a driver on the Canon Europe web site. Downloaded it, was a deb archive containing 3 packages: cnijfilter-common_3.00-1_i386.deb cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.tar.gz cnijfilter-ip3600series_3.00-1_i386.deb We double clicked on the first one above, it ran a package installer. We double clicked on the second one the tar, it opened showing a bunch of files. Double clicked on the last one and it ran a package installer Now the printer works BUT resolution is limited to 600 and some features may be missing from the options. QUESTION: What to do with the second file, the tar.gz. Where does it go what does it do? We have no idea. Help appreciated (Hardware)
