    Canon Pixma mg5150 Printer

    hey guys i ran into a small problem i downloaded the proper print and scan drivers for my printer and installed them using terminal i can now scan documents by typing scangearmp into the terminal and i can print too.

    the problem is that when i print a document my printer will keep the printing the same document over and over again it seems like there is a never ending print job going on any ideas how to fix this please ?

    How I fixed this problem:
    in order to fix this problem from my research done is first check the printer settings and look for a parameter copies and make sure it is set to 1 if it is set to one like mine was i installed cups with this command in the terminal
    sudo apt-get install cups-pdf
    and my printer started printing fine
