    One MINOR edit suggested and one issue:

    After 7, the printer needs to be connected and power on. I know that the requirements say printer must be connected via USB cable, but most users will have a new machine with a plug in the USB socket and a big card saying "Do not plug USB cable in until software is installed."

    The installation worked fine (as does the printer and copy function).

    I have an issue with scanning: XSane doesn't recognize that a scanner is connected, even if I have pushed the scan button before I open XSane. The error message is "no devices available" Did I miss something?

    With a USB-connected MF4270 and Ubuntu 9.10, I had to make sure that the usblp module was present in order to have the printer detected. This is contrary to everything else that I've found that claims that Cups 1.4 requires that this module _NOT_ be present.

    Additionally, the above-mentioned packages from the Canon site fail to install because they depend on libcupsys2 which has been renamed in Ubuntu/Debian. The instructions at the following link were sufficient to get around this issue:

    Perhaps this info can be useful to someone else. Other than that, the above instructions worked perfectly for me. Thanks.

    This same exact driver and same exact process works with the Canon MF8050Cn running on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala 64-bit.

    I had some problems because I didn't understand that "alien" is a command which converts an RPM (or whatever) to a Debian package. However, I used the 2 64-bit RPMs in the archive mentioned in this thread and got the printer going after a bit of fumbling around.

    Thanks.

    You are awesome!

    I was totally able to get my Canon ImageCLASS MF8050Cn to install and print via ethernet with no problems, thanks to your walkthrough!

    In fact, I didn't even need anything past step #12. The Printer Configuration tool was able to find the printer over the network (had to wait a minute for the list to populate) and the drivers were auto-detected after installing the packages via GDEBI.

    Thank you so very much! You saved me a *huge* headache...

    Now if I can just get it to scan over the network...

    ... That was a joke. Are you laughing, yet?

    (I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)
