Customer Question
I have an Acer C720...
I have an Acer C720 Notebook. I want to print a document. So, I have attached the USB cord from my printer to the notebook but I am not able to print as it is a Cloud printer and is not compatible. There is a way to connect to my Canon print I know but I am getting lost in the quagmire! So help!
Thanks.

chromebook and drivers were not installed on chromebook
Network Technician: A. Stevens, Network Administrator replied 3 years ago
Ah, I see. Ok, and how did you install the canon software? Via CD, or download from the internet perhaps?

just want to add a local printer. nothing is installed
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
maybe I should call Acer
Network Technician: A. Stevens, Network Administrator replied 3 years ago
Actually, we would just need to get the correct Canon software installed so that the printer can communicate with the chromebook

Sorry about that, looks like the MP280 does not have software for chromebook available...you would have to set it up via Google cloud print

I know that. That is what I was trying to do but I am having trouble, obviously.
Network Technician: A. Stevens, Network Administrator replied 3 years ago
Sorry about the confusion. So at this point where are you exactly in the cloud print setup ?
