Colors Too Dark

Postby Uncle Tim » Thu Feb 28, 2013 9:34 am

I recently updated to Mint 14 and installed a printer, Canon PIXMA MG3100. The colors are very dark. Red and orange are dark brown, yellow is dark gold, green is black, etc. Can anyone advise?

Is there a setting for quality or something similar? It almost sounds like it's dumping too much ink. You could also see if Canon has linux drivers. Don't count on it though.

Thank you. Yes, there are drivers available. I removed the printer, reinstalled the drivers, then reinstalled the printer, and now it works fine.
