I am using Ubuntu 10.04 now, and decided to get my printer working so that I can print out a UPS shipping label. Normally I would send this to my wife, have her print it, and that would be it. But her hard drive failed, and I am waiting for a new one to arrive. So time to get my Canon IP4300 working with my laptop.
Trouble is, I don't have a Printers option under Administrator, just Printing, and when I bring that up, it just lists Other/Network Printer and asks for a URL. It does not show any printers or brand names in the left column, so nothing to choose from.
I've searched these forums and got 50 returns, but nothing to help. I've used Google to search elsewhere, but again no help. One post did relate to a link to a site in Australia, but the link goes nowhere now.
I just don't have it in my head as to what has to be done here to get it working. While I wait for some help, I'm going to track down the USB cable and make sure it is routed correctly.
And some help would be appreciated.
Oh, I got broke in on a couple of months back, heard a noise and called out from a different room, and they paniced and left. Had to be a couple of teenagers. But with the way things are going, I expect more of the same in the future, and next time hope to be better prepared.
Trouble is, stupid government politicians want to take arms away from honest citizens and leave them in the hands of criminals. They can't seem to learn from experience of use their noggins to see the obvious for themselves.
