    The Printer works fine with 12.04, the scanner on the other hand is being less then cooperative. All worked under Fedora 16 last week and then I upgraded to Precise. I installed the two 64bit debs manually and without issues since the normal ./install.sh file doesnt recongize the package system for some reason. But the scangearmp software still reports that the scanner is not connected. This leads me to believe it may not be seeing the scanner *duh* for some reason, but may not be directly related to the canon drivers. LSUSB list this:

    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 046d:c22a Logitech, Inc.
    Although the Canon, Inc is listed. It may only be seeing the printer part which is working. Not sure of the inner working around the USB inside the printer though. I may be wrong but I thought at one time it would list two items under LSUSB one for Printer and one for Scanner???

    Use new updated driver for scangear. (version 1.80) and scanning for Canon MP280 will work.

    see this link:

    I can confirm that (only) this works in Precise.

    I downloaded and installed the latest version of the 4 deb files from the link provided (http://code.launchpad.net/~michael-g...runk/+packages).

    Both scanner and printer now works in 12.04!!!

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: driver for canon pixma mp280 printer

    Hi!

    I have to say that the new drivers for the scanner aren't working for me. I installed the one from the Canon official site, 1.60, and then updated with the 1.80 and is still not working. I'm very disappointed with Ubuntu right now. I thought that things that worked before would still be working with 12.04, and this is feeling like a slap on my face. I don't know what to do... because 1.80 seems to work for everyone...

    I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 just for 3 days and I was really happy until today.

    I installed Gimp 2.6. File -> Create -> ScanGear MP.. and.. disaster!!! Not available scanner... all the time... arggg

    I downloaded this: scangearmp-mp280series_1.80-0~11~precise1_amd64

    Re: driver for canon pixma mp280 printer

    Hi!
    I'm unable to put to work the scanner with 12.04. At the end I virtualized ubuntu 10.04 and that's what I'm using. And from today the printer just prints half page... I googled and I think that's some problem with cups... so I guess I'll be using Lucid frequently...

    Maybe I did something wrong when I installed the drivers.

    My steps.
    1. I installed both source and mp280 for the printer and the scanner
    2. I updated both of them with the new drivers.
    3. Nothing works.

    Ideas?

    Nothing works.
    ...........

    I wondered what you did to get your Canon scanner to work:

    Canon provide the programme scangear and sadly there is not a GUI interface for it, so you initially issue the command

    scangearmp
    in a terminal;

    If you do this, do you get the programme scangear loading...

    this post

    http://linuxhelp.host.org/index.php?...create-desktop

    talks about how to create a launcher so that you can load scangear more easily in the future;
