Install Canon Printer for Ubuntu Linux


Posted by iheartubuntu on Saturday, February 04, 2012

Canon is well known for their large printer selection. Unfortunately Canon has, up until this point, only provided printer drivers for Windows and Mac computers. Canon did release some printer drivers for linux, but the majority of Canon printer owners were out of luck.


About a year ago my dad bought a new computer at Fry's electronics store and along with the computer came a free Canon ip2600 printer. It was difficult to say the least to get the printer working in Ubuntu 10.10. Luckily Canon provided 32 bit drivers after some time, and then someone converted this to work on 64 bit systems as well.

Ubuntu 11.10 DOES see and attempt to install the Canon printer of mine, although trying to print a domcument does nothing. Thankfully, there is now a PPA available for many many commonly used Canon printers.

To install these Canon printer driver for Ubuntu you need to add the PPA below in your Ubuntu system. Open a "terminal" window and copy and paste these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update

Make sure to disconnect the Canon printer from your computer first.

Now copy and paste your appropriate install command based on your printer:
