    Canon PIXMA MG4100 Series Printer Driver

    Has anyone found a printer driver for the Canon PIXMA MG4100 Series printer that will work with Ubuntu 12.04?

    I take it the crickets means no one has found or knows of a driver that will work with this printer.

    Have you tried to connect the printer?
    This printer should work according to this (if you are using 12.04 beta):

    Have tried printing wireless only. Selecting any of the other Canon MG series drivers will only print a blank page. Using a Generic Postscript driver will print but not centered on page correctly.

    You could try this:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install Canon MG4100
    or
    sudo apt-get install Canon MG4100 Ubuntu Driver

    It would appear that selecting the Canon PIXMA MG3100 printer driver will print in B&W only. Better than nothing until someone comes up with a proper driver.

    www.canon-asia.com had a MG3100 series driver that works perfect with my MG3120 wireless printer!

    Thanks for the link! (although the link above is broken/wrong)
