    Canon MX432

    Would like to return to Ubuntu, dual booting with Win7 as I need to keep Windows for work projects.
    From brief Wubi install to check things out, already know that printer compatibility is an issue with Canon MX432. However, I may have found a potential solution.
    What other problems can I expect with Toshiba laptop?
    Go with 12.04LTS? 32 bit or 64 bit?
    OR go with 12.10?

    12.04 64bit is the best for your ram and for long term support. Otherwise you'll have to upgrade more frequently and see more major changes to the interface etc.

    Canon MX432 Canon provide deb packages for printer and scanner

    Canon provide a debian package driver for your MX430 series device; cnijfilter-mx430series-3.70-1-deb.tar.gz

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100412601.html

    it has an install script and debian drivers for both 32bit and 64bit so the commands to install the driver would be

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mx430series-3.70-1-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mx430series-3.70-1-deb
    ./install.sh
    and that should be the printer driver installed

    _______________________________________________

    to run the scanner component, Canon provide ScanGearMP scangearmp-mx430series-1.90-1-deb.tar.gz

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100413801.html

    the install commands are the same as above

    to run ScanGearMP, type

    scangearmp
    in a terminal

    enjoy Ubuntu

    Re: Will I have problems?

    Much thanks for the prompt replies. Haven't used Ubuntu for a few years and may need help with the printer/scanner install but feel more confident about making the switch. Will order the DVD so I have adequate back up for re-installing if necessary.
