you are correct of course! Printer now working - Yippee
Scanner next ...
Downloaded zipped driver, extracted, ran install.sh in Terminal, but Simple Scan can't find the scanner?
- Any ideas of what you did pretty please?
(my father will be so chuffed to find all this working in Lovely Linux with a Minty Freshness when he gets out of hospital soon!!!)
I owe you an huge debt of gratitude for helping me with this
- Even making me realise it was possible, as I had previously though Canon were very hostile to Linux ...
Incidentally, I double clicked on install.sh and clicked again on the 'Run in Terminal' button which opened up Terminal and asked for system password ...
Seemed to run just fine, but how do I 'register' the scanner with the system?scangearmp
does open a scanning menu of course, but it would be nice to have Simple Scan
working too ...
Dum de dum etc,
