    printing with Canon Pixma MP560

    Hi,
    Has anyone gotten the canon pixma mp560 working on ubuntu. The printer supports wireless printing too but i'm tyring to get it to print over the wire first. the printer is detected on connecting through usb.However, the only printers available in the database are those for mp500 and mp520. I tried both but neither worked.

    Any ideas?

    TIA

    MP560 is a new version of MP620. Instructions on how to get MP620 working: http://technicaltony.blogspot.com/20...on-ubuntu.html
    I'm looking for a new printer and if the MP560 works under Linux it might be that. Please, let us hear if you get the printer working

    I have found another guide for the MP620: http://www.michael-krueger.org/2009/...p620-with.html
    Please report back how it goes with getting the MP560 working

    I had to purchase the TurboPrint drivers to REALLY get my Pixma MP830 working.

    I can even print on printable DVDs reliably.

    Sometimes, not often really, but SOMEtimes, ya gotta pay for results.
