this is the problem:

i use fedora25, have gutenprint cups, and want to use my printer canon ip 100 series, it is connected via usb. fedora recognizes the printer, but it does not really work: it only "prints" empty pages. so i tried to install the drivers from canon for this printer, which are named cnijfilter-common-3.70-1.x8664.rpm and cnijfilter-ip100series-3.70-1.x8664.rpm

installing the first one was no problem, but at the second i got following errors: "nothing provides libtiff3". so i downloaded libtiff3 and tried to install it, but there was the following error: "nothing provides rpmlib(SetVersions)". so, where do i get rpmlib? kobo-rpmlib.noarch is already installed. or, is there any other solution? any missing package?

thank you for your help.

You should install libtiff from Fedora repos also make sure those canon rpm files are for centos redhat o Fedora it looks like they are not

ok, finally i got a solution, but not about the problems with libtiff3 and rpmlib. it's sufficient to have gutenprint-cups, but i needed to change my printer settings: i changed the driver from ip100series to ip110series. this works, i don't know why. maybe there is something wrong with driver ip100series.
