I installed LUBUNTU 14.10 64 bit on my laptop and 32 bit on another. My family printer is USB Canon MG2450. It is connected to my router via Networking Server box that communicates betweem Ethernet to USB. In Win7 environment all computer connected to my network and have Networking software installed, may take control over this printer/scanner (one each time). It works flawless.
In Lubuntu - it doesn't at all. I have installed drivers provided with packages, then drivers dowlowded from Canon's Asia site (.deb), but the best I can get is the first "movement" of the printer when a job is sent to it. It starts forwarding a page, then stops, and after maybe half an hour, the page get out with a partial frame printed on it, but never with the content it should have on it. I'm quite desperate since I have tried almost all suggestions found on the Net for this problem: different ways of installation (command line, authomatic), different drivers, including 32 or 64 bit, different versions of it, whatever.. THe best I got is what is described above.
Can anyone say if this is a bug, or I make something wrong from the beginning? I start looking for other Linux distributions, or just to give the Linux up and to uninstall: I can't go to Windowseach time I need to print a page...
