    I used a Canon PIXMA MP250 for a while with no problems at all on 10.04, but have no experience on later versions of ubuntu.

    so you can download it from the Canon Asia site

    it is the MP230 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 3.80 for Linux (debian Packagearchive) which comes down as cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz

    If you copy and paste these commands into a terminal..hit the enter key after each paste..

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mp230series-3.80-1-deb
    sudo ./
    that should have the printer driver installed..............

    Canon also provide ScanGearMP to run the scanner...........

    get it from here

    it comes down as scangearmp-mp230series-2.00-1-deb.tar.gz

    install using the same format as above..

    run it by

    scangearmp you don't use simple scan or then need a launcher to ..launch it..........each time
