Good to know

  • Printer should normally be turned off for fumes & noise reasons. Switch on right edge, under black cover.
  • On startup the printer often asks for paper size of a paper tray: choose "A4 - plain paper".
  • Sometimes the printer doesn't wake from sleep for printing. It helps to turn on the display ('power' button on top panel)
  • With the eye button ๐Ÿ‘ you can view the current print job(s) and adjust the paper size (often pages are printed as "US Letter" accidentally - but there is only A4 and A3 paper in the printer, so it rejects with the "Load paper" instruction)

Without installation

Note: currently buggy. If it doesn't work for you, consider the manual installation in the next section.

If you are logged into kanthaus or kanthaus-insecure, the printer should automatically appear in your print dialogues as Kanthaus_CanonC2025_.... (The printer is not accessible from kanthaus-gast.)

If you don't see the printer, check your system has MDNS For linux, this means having avahi-daemon installed and running, which should be the default on most distibutions.

This method prints via the virtual printer installed on the kanthaus server. While this should normally work, you might consider installing the printer manually on your system to avoid any potential problems and have a more direct relationship to the printer.

Scan to USB

Insert a USB stick into the printer (slot to the right of the control panel). Press the power button on top to wake printer if sleeping, then press the "Scan & Store" button on the top of the screen and select the USB Memory Media.

Select options as desired, then press big, green button to scan. Press "Start storing" to transfer scan, and finally eject USB stick via small, green button on the bottom-right corner.

Note: The USB stick needs to be formatted with the Windows file system FAT to be recognised by the printer/scanner-combination.

Scan to Network

After turning the printer on, press the "Scan & Store" button on the top of the screen and select the KH-Server location.

After scanning, you will find your files in the Scan share on kanthaus-server. Use the file manager of your system and browse for windows/samba/network shares or directly enter the address: smb://kanthaus-server/scan. If you are asked for any credentials, you can login anonymously.

Please remove your files after scanning: they are accessible to anyone without authentication from all networks except kanthaus-gast.
