    Canon MP140 will not print

    Hi,
    I have tried to install Canon MP140 printer under Ubuntu 20.04 the normal way, but I dont find the driver in the list. MP140 is installed. The scanner works.

    From the Internet I got two suggestions:

    $ sudo apt install printer-drive-gutenprint
    ...
    Unable to locate package printer-drive-gutenprint *******NO SUCCESS



    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thierry-f/fork-michael-gruz
    - cangearmp2 driver add the 10/2019
    - Cnijfilter2 driver add the 10/2019
    - UFRII driver add the 10/2019

    $ sudo apt update

    $ sudo apt install cnijfilter2 scangearmp2 cndrvcups-utility *******probably SUPERFLUOUS
    - Unable to locate package cnrdrvcups-utility

    $ sudo apt install cndrvcups-lipslx, ....etc. *******NO SUCCESS

    $ sudo apt install cnijfilter2 scangearmp2 *******SUCCESS, but probably SUPERFLUOUS?

    Can anyone tell me what I should do next to make it work?
    Best regards

    If the scanner part works then very likely the printer part works as well. Most printers do NOT need additional drivers with the latest Ubuntu releases.

    Funny, I had the opposite issue-- could print but not scan with a Canon MX310 on Ubuntu 20.04. For what it is worth, I had success printing after installing these packages using Synaptic:

    printer-driver-gutenprint version 5.3.3-4 (printer driver for CUPS)

    libgutenprint9 (runtime for Gutenprint printer driver library)

    libgutenprint-common (support files)


    I had lots of trouble getting scanning to work, however. I eventually gave up and purchased software.

    Hi Brian,
    Thank you very much. That - + some unspecified fiddling - did it.
