I'm trying to get the Canon MX870 to work on my dad's computer which is running Mint Isadora.
I'm using this printer as a shared printer on a Windows machine and am trying to get it to work via Samba.
Linux does see the printer as a network printer but when I go to install the drivers the MX870 is not in the printer list. That pretty much stops me from going any farther with the setup.
I've found some drivers on the Canon website and I have installed them on the machine. The only problem is that even after the successful installation the MX870 does not show up in the driver list.
I'm sure I'm missing something that is fairly easy to solve but I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.
Any help would be appreciated.
