    how to install a Canon PIXMA MG5250 wireless wifi printer ?

    I have a Canon PIXMA MG5250 stand alone wifi printer thats connected to all my windows computers and laptops. Now I want to install a computer with Ubuntu 10.10 and connect this printer also wireless by wifi.

    is this possible, and how do i do this,do I need to download or configure this somewhere?

    I also found on the normal website if you choose Linux drivers. My problem is that I have no idea how to install tar.gz files.

    If someone can tell me hw to install I will test them. I found some guides on tar balls but to complicated for me.

    have you see the Debian Package: http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100301702.html

    i think you don't need to compile the driver source files from the normal canon homepage.

    I downloaded the DEb pack and unpacked it in the home folder. Than I opened in the unpacked folder the(deb) software thru the software center and installed the printer. Choose the network printer and it finds your wifi printer.

    I also installed the scan software but this will not function It does not find my wifi scanner.
