Canon Printer Driver for Ubuntu

Posted by : Unknown
Are you the one person who has a Canon Printer & Your Canon Printer can not be used because there is no driver or driver does not work in Ubuntu? Do not panic & do not be confused because there are PPA (Personal Package Archive) that provides drivers for various types of Canon Printer. You just add the PPA repository to your Ubuntu system, type the following command into the Terminal.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update
Then go to the Ubuntu Software Center and then see the left column, there are PPA Canon Printer Driver. Click there and then select & install the Canon Printer driver that you need. Here I demonstrated to install the driver for Canon MP258, so I choose & install the driver cnijfilter-mp250series.

If you do not want to install it via Ubuntu Software Center, you can also install it via Terminal. Just type the following command :
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-mp250series
When finished installed, look in System>Administration>Printing.

There would seem a printer that the driver is already installed and that means the printer for that type can be detected automatically if the printer is connected to a laptop/computer.

To install the driver for another type of Canon Printer, do the same. You just go to the Ubuntu Software Center and then select the driver & click install.
