Hello, and thank you for choosing JA for your support needs. Happy to assist you with this issue.
Now, most Flavors of LINUX are based on RH, DEBIAN, SUSE or Umbuntu. Which Flavor is most closest to your Flavor?
Ok, thank you Kindly.. Give me a few minutes..
Hello, Sir or Madam. Here is the needed information on the resolution to this issue.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-common cnijfilter-mp240series
This Gent has Compiled Driver's to allow your Flavor of LINUX to work with the Printer in Question. Also, there are Open Source Drivers for Canon. But, these are not made by Canon either.
Please make me aware of your results.
Did you download the Software from the Link?
Also, where did you copy the files? Did you place them in the ROOT?
Ok. Sir or Madam, we will try another solution.
