If I had a live CD/USB drive to get to Linux right now I would test.
But I expect a package named iP4600_RPM_printer.tar to contain an RPM file.
I think it's a stupid windows tools stopping after the first dot in the filename.And
one of the 2 files I linked from Canon is cnijfilter-ip4600series-3.00-1.i386.rpm
I found an alternate file of the same name on a Canon server.
I'll try some other tools later as I only have one tool that claims tar support on my
Of course you could try too. It's not a big file or take long, even with the crappy
internet service here in Afghanistan. I just didn't have time to look/try more last

I tried it with Windows tools but only see one file.
a 1.5MB file named cnijfilter-ip4600series-3.00-1.i386
I'm guessing the tools I have are stripping of the .rpm extension.
But, the tar file is 7.5MB so I'm thinking the tools is screwing up.
I think it's far more likely that the .i386 file is a binary installer,
in order to run it you will need to chmod +x the file so it has the
execute permissions. I suspect you will need to be root to do this so
use sudo, you will need sudo to run the installer too.
