I have a fresh install of Mythbuntu 12.04.01
I download and installed the Canon drivers from the Canon website:
UFR II Printer Driver for Linux Version 2.50
I used the procedure at this location:
When I print documents, I see them show up in the print queue.
My Canon Imageclass MF4570dn printer will not print. My system sees the printer in system settings and it's telling me that the printer is ready, but that's it. Do I still need to install the drivers? And if so, how do I go about doing this?
Recently this model printer was moved to the paperweight section of the linux printer database, well this was a correct move for (new Installs of 11.2 ) but , there is a way around this if you have one of these printers and they are great for basic printing in linux.
this is not the best way to save a printer but it worked for me and i did not have to go out and replace two printers.

Ubuntu shows the printer as the default printer. Listed as
Make & Model: Canon Pixma MP500 - cups+ Gutenprint v5.4
I have a clean install of Ubuntu 13.10, the printer is on a fixed IP address (10.1.1.205, set in the router, printer still gets this IP address via DHCP), and also connected to the workstation via the USB cable. I can add the printer either as a wifi printer or as a connected printer, selecting the printer type as a 'generic ZjStream' printer.
I setup my Canon MX870 while running F17. I successfully printed a test page, and didn't print anything after that. I upgraded to F18 and tried to print, but nothing was sent to the printer. I've checked Cups (localhost:631) and it shows that the print jobs completed. While trying to troubleshoot I found that I can't ping my printer anymore. Well, I can but not always.
Hi all,I have a Canon MP600 printer/scanner connected via USB to a small print- and scan-server running Arch (last update was yesterday). The printer is shared over the network and can be accessed from a Windows 7 client. But from time to time after 1-2 prints the printer crashes. I that happens, only a power disconnect can bring it back.
