    Alas, they've done something differently in 13.04 and the driver won't load, either using the PPA or the Software centre. All of a sudden I don't have a printer.

    If you delete any existing printers set up ..as they don't seem to work..

    from the Canon Asia site

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100301702.html

    the driver package comes down as cnijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb.tar.gz .......if you download this and select "SAVE" to your downloads folder

    What happens if you paste these commands into a terminal?

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb
    sudo ./install.sh
    ......that should have you up and running ...........

    you can check that it is installed by the command

    sudo dpkg -l | grep cnijfilter
