Prints Only Black & White

Postby Uncle Tim » Sun Oct 07, 2012 2:07 am

Running Mint Maya with Cinnamon. I recently got a new Canon printer (MG3100). My old Canon printer worked fine with Linux. This new one prints fine, but only in black and white. All settings look OK/normal. It prints fine with Windows 7, but only B&W with Linux. What can I do?

Thank you.
