    hey, switched to the driver fix you provided for this 10.04 machine. Works and Scanner installed too.

    However, I still can't seem to use the scanner wirelessly. Simple scan at least can't detect a scanner, but I'm not sure its setup to look for a network one.

    The 32bit install was a snap. Thank you rbosaz and thewump!

    Hey, thanks, I'm running 64 bit and the printer works great

    I used the same method for this scanner driver:

    http://support-sg.canon-asia.com/con...100272302.html

    However upon running the shell file I got this message:

    Code:
    ==================================================

    ==================================================
    An error occurred. A necessary package could not be found in the proper location.
    Any ideas?

    I'm having problems scanning even over USB, running Lucid amd64. I run scangearmp (with and without root privileges, makes no difference) and while it seems to recognize that a scanner or scanner driver is present (the window shows "Canon MX870 series (libusb:001:005)" in a drop-down menu), clicking "Update Scanner List" results in a bouncing progress bar that just stays there.

    Is updating the scanner list supposed to take an obscenely long time? I left it for as long as 10 minutes solid but nothing happened.

    Printing works fine so I know the USB connection is good.

    Hi

    The instructions worked for me on i386, 10.04, but for a Pixma MX350. Thanks!

    I had to comment the same lines in the install.sh script - the instructions suggest this will only be necessary on 64 bit, but before commenting out that portion of the script, I got

    "An error occurred. The package management system cannot be identified."

    Thanks a lot for the advice everyone. I had no problems installing the driver and getting it to work. I didn't even have to modify any of the code. Thanks!

    Thanks for this information. I was able to download both the printer and scanner drives. Printer works fine, but "Simple Scan" does not find the scanner.

    I had to add the printer.

    How do I add the scanner?

    I'm stuck on getting the scanner to work as well.

    Following the install guide I was able to get the printer up and running on a 64bit desktop and 32bit laptop running Ubuntu 10.10, but the scanner driver did not want to cooperate. I attempted a wireless connection first, but then tried a USB hookup to be sure the driver was the issue and not the connection.

    It appears that the scanner driver install is crashing while running "ldconfig". Could this be because the driver is written for 9.04?

    My current workaround is to leave a media card in the printer to which I save scans and then access them over my network and copy them to my computer. The minor problem I've run into is that Ubuntu keeps telling me the file contains no data. Although after I copy the file over it opens up perfectly. I successfully tested a .jpg scan, but my .pdf test has gotten me nowhere so far, Ubuntu insists that the file contains no data. Yet, if I plug the memory card into the computer's slot, the same .pdf file opens immediately. So I don't know what is going on there.

    If anybody has any more ideas, please let me know.
