    Canon PIXMA MG2520 Printer

    I have went through this once before, but I can't remember what I did to fix it.
    I am running Xubuntu 13.10 32-bit.

    I have a Canon PIXMA MG2520, and it is recognized as a printer on the "printers" application.

    I cannot find any drivers for this printer.
    None of the threads I found were of any help. These are the places I checked for results:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2204685
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/41800...12-04lts-64bit

    Any ideas on how to fix it?
    Things to remember :
    - Use proper english
    - Comment your code
    - Keep background information and introductions to a minimum

    Problem Solved.

    Under the "Choose Driver" menu, when setting up the printer, you need to select a completely different devices driver.

    Look for "PIXMA iP2700"

    Select that as your driver instead of the one for PIXMA MG2520 (because there isn't one for MG2520)

    Hi Tristan; I missed this thread

    Canon DO provide drivers ............. in .deb and .rpm format; (and source code); and in both 32 and 64bit formats; with an install script in each to run ............

    go here

    http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100550201.html

    to get the debian package; cnijfilter-mg2500series-4.00-1-deb.tar.gz

    install through a terminal by downloading and saving and then

    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf cnijfilter-mg2500series-4.00-1-deb.tar.gz
    cd cnijfilter-mg2500series-4.00-1-deb
    ./install.sh

    _____________________________--

    Canon also supply a programme ScanGearMP to run the scanner

    go here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/c...100551901.html to download scangearmp-mg2500series-2.20-1-deb.tar.gz and close the terminal from above; reopen and then

    They really need a "Thanks" button here as I have seen in other forums. You've certainly got mine, pdc!
