    Here you go:-
    http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consu...XMA_MP230.aspx

    Read everything carefully and you should be OK, unless things have changed so much in RR that it does not work.

    The drivers themselves are at:-

    I used a Canon PIXMA MP250 for a while with no problems at all on 10.04, but have no experience on later versions of ubuntu.

    so you can download it from the Canon Asia site

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100465901.html

    it is the MP230 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.80 for Linux (debian Packagearchive) which comes down as cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz

    If you copy and paste these commands into a terminal..hit the enter key after each paste..

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb
    sudo ./install.sh
    that should have the printer driver installed..............

    __________________________________________________ ____

    Canon also provide ScanGearMP to run the scanner...........

    get it from here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100469501.html

    it comes down as scangearmp-mp230series-2.00-1-deb.tar.gz

    install using the same format as above..

    run it by

    scangearmp
    ......so you don't use simple scan or xscan.....................you then need a launcher to ..launch it..........each time
