    Canon ir2525

    Trying to get this printer working ASAP (I have a report I need to print)

    Canon ir2525 (Network Printer)
    Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

    I had this working a long time ago. (In 12.04 64bit)

    Then I upgraded to 12.10 and had some un-related problems.

    Just backed up all my files, and did a clean install back to 12.04.

    Followed the same methods as last time, but now it wont work.

    I have the correct drivers that I used originally.

    Everything installs fine.

    But when I print, nothing happens.

    Says printed successfully, but nothing prints.

    Not sure what could have changed.

    Please,if you have any idea on how to troubleshoot this...

    Thanks

    Re: 12.04 64bit (Cant Print) Please Help (Urgent)

    When you say nothing prints, does this mean that the printer operated and just spit out a blank page or does it mean it did not make a sound? No movement no operation nothing? If the printer spit out a blank page I would suspect your ink cartridges and or print head. I recently had a Canon i850 that spit out blank text pages. The problem was the black ink print head was clogged with dry ink.
    Why aren't you on #ubuntuforums on irc.freenode.net?

    Nothing happens.

    The printer does not react to me printing.

    There is nothing wrong with the printer though.

    I was using Ubuntu 12.10 printing whenever I needed to.

    Reverted back to Ubuntu 12.04 via clean install.

    Installed the same driver, the same way as I did when I was using 12.04 the first time. (I took notes last time)

    And for some reason, the result this time, is not the same.

    I got it working again.

    Instead of installing the driver like I did last time, I added this ppa

    Seemed to solve it
