Re: Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Canon MX410
Hello, I am currently the maintainer of the Canon backend of the gutenprint project. The current development version of Gutenprint is much better equipped to automatically adjust options to avoid these problems, but even so, I hope I can help you print using the 5.2.7 version and see if there are further bugs I should correct.

If you are using the 5.2.7 driver, probably you have not selected compatible options for printing monochrome.
- you need to set the mode/resolution. If you want to print in Mono, you have to select a mono mode from the list of modes.
- you need to select "Grayscale" as the color model (as you inidicate you already have done).
See if you get any results using this method. You can also see if changing the InkType to "K" in addition to the above 2 settings makes any difference (it should not, but since we are looking for bugs...).
I am curious what you mean you cannot print if you changet the mode/resolution. Is that for color (Color Model set to RGB) or only in combination with trying to print grayscale?
Learning the mechanism requires good teachers and dedication
