http://askubuntu.com – I have a windows 7 machine with a Canon MG5250 connected via USB. It is shared on the network. I have my Ubuntu 11.10 machine on the network also, which I want to print from. I got as far as browsing the network, finding the printer, adding it, printing to it and Ubuntu reports a successful print. However, the windows print queue spools all the info and reports it as printing even though it doesn't print. The windows machine prints with no problems. Very odd. Any clues as to why this might be happening? screengrabs at http://up.k10x.net/nbsekxrdwyytq/windialog.jpg http://up.k10x.net/uspba (HowTos)
