    Canon linux support MF4880DW coming soon to a computer near you?

    Hi George

    this looks a brand new device

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2412027,00.asp

    Canon recently released the 2 series in their pixma printers:

    ie the 2100 series became the 2200 series, etc ............

    .......and after a couple of months, linux drivers were added to their pages

    ....I can't see this 4880 listed yet: you would need a specific ppd and you would register the printer ..something along the lines of sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p MF4880DW -m canonMF4880DW..whatever.ppd

    so I guess a clever soul could edit an existing ppd file; (as they look very similar when you open them with gedit)

    .....but hopefully the lads in Japan will release something soon

    ..........incidentally the new inkjet printers are all google cloud ready so in the future that may allow another to print; (rather than needing printer driver interfaces from a computer)
