Canon MF628cw

Can I assume you are talking about the Canon MF628cw? That is a mighty fine printer; so if you go to the Canon Europe site, they offer v 3.5 of the UFR driver for linux users; that would suggest they believe it is fine: do you have a laptop? are you buying this printer from a shop?

Re: Canon TS3122 - how do i get this set up wirelessly

I think my sense was that by pressing the nominated buttons: that made the printer be able to "talk to the router": eg on some older printers, Canon provided this https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/pixma_printer_wireless_connection_setup/mg5540_printer_wireless_connection_setup/ googl...

HP Color Laserjet Pro M277dw

I'm just going to comment on which version of hplip is needed: HP says it should be at least 3.15.4

and you did install the plug-in?

If you run

Code: Select all

hp-check
it should tell you if it is unhappy; if missing some packages

Re: Canon TS3122 - how do i get this set up wirelessly

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSYyFIhBl5k so if you have a wireless router; you need to "do its protections" so it can talk to the printer; this video clip may give you the idea; once the printer and router are talking to each other nicely; then if you go to the PRINTERS folder; (that is inside th...

so if you do

Code: Select all

hp-setup
in the terminal; that should get hplip to get the plug-in and install it; so the device can start working

maybe you see how things are after that;
