http://askubuntu.com – I am unable to setup Canon InkJet Pixma IP 1300 on Quantal AMD64. The things I have tried: Shut down and disconnect the printer before installing packages. Added the ppa:michael-gruz/canon repository to synaptic and installed the cnijfilter-pixmaip1000series package (there is no package for 1300 so I installed the nearest one). The PPA repository does not have packages for Quantal, so had to manually update the repository definition to "Oneiric" and refreshed it before downloading. Restarted cups via sudo service cups restart. Connected and switched on the printer. Opened All Settings -> P (HowTos)
