canon printer driver?

Post by Gabin »

How do i get my canon mg5220 to work in linux mint 11? I tried to do the same thing I did in Ubuntu without success. Is it an issue with debian?

The MG5250 has Linux printer & scanner drivers for "MG5200 Series" listed: http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Con ... oad&page=1

You will find .deb files of the drivers somewhere in the archive. Usually you first install a "common" .deb file and then one for your printer.
But I don't know if this will work on the MG5220. The Canon page of that printer says that no Linux drivers are available. Canon stopped releasing Linux drivers in 2009.

Feel free to correct me if I'm trying to write in Spanish, French or German.
