let me suggest this to you. Remove every Canon driver using Synaptic. When finished, close synaptic. After that open a terminal and run the following command:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-trunk

After that run:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Then open synaptic again and look under Source (left below) for the michael gruz entry. Mark the proper printerdriver for installation and click apply.

so you are running 2 threads about your MG2240 printer ......

I think if you install the libtiff4; and redo the instructions I gave you in the other post; the MG2200 series printer will install correctly and you will have a working printer .........

I don't think you need to do any deletions etc

I will also subscribe to this thread and keep a closer eye on the forum
