How to install Canon iR2018 UFRII network printer in precise
I switched to Ubuntu from Windows 7 in July 2011 and have been having a great experience running Ubuntu. I love this operating system and have been recommending it to other people. I have even been burning installation cds and providing them to people interested in Ubuntu.
Seeing me use ubuntu and work in a virus free environment, some colleagues at my office have shown interest to try Ubuntu. I am sure they will love it.
However, here a small problem that has been preventing them from using it or rather say prevented me from recommending it.
Our office uses a network printer of the model Canon iR2018 UFRII. Despite installing the drivers and even following the advice of members of this forum, I haven't been able to print anything from my machine (which has Ubuntu 12.04 now but I started with Ubuntu 10.04). I have to reboot with Windows to get anything printed. (one of the few reasons why i have been dual booting)
If I could get my computer to work with the printer, I could happily recommend Ubuntu to 3-4 colleagues in my office.
Can anyone help me on how to get the network printer working on my computer?
P.S. I tried installing all the drivers provided by canon but to no avail.
I have also followed the advice as suggested in this thread:
But nothing has worked so far.
Hoping to get advice on how to fix this problem.
