I am trying to add a new printer in CUPS but am unable to do so. I get to the last page, click the option it gives me (“Canon LPB612C/613C, driverless, cups-filters 1.16.4 (en)”) and click “Add Printer” only to be greeted with an error page saying “Unable to copy PPD file”.
Looking at the CUPS error log, I see this:
E [20/Sep/2017:23:41:04 -0400] [CGI] Cannot connect to remote printer ipp://Canone2f2ca.local:631/ipp/print (Canone2f2ca.local:631)
E [20/Sep/2017:23:41:04 -0400] copy_model: empty PPD file
E [20/Sep/2017:23:41:04 -0400] [Client 54] Returning IPP server-error-internal-error for CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer (ipp://localhost/printers/Canon_LBP612C_613C) from localhost
Any suggestions? I searched online and was unable to find a PPD file for this particular printer.
