I have a new MG5320 printer, and several ubuntu computers on my local network.
I am trying to install drivers to get them to work.
ppa:michael-gruz/canon does not (yet) have drivers for the MG5300 series.
The Canon linux drivers from support-asia.canon-asia.com provides drivers and an install script.
The install script fails on my amd64 10.10 with the error "An error occurred. The package management system cannot be identified." A glance at the install script shows testing for dpkg…
dpkg --version 1> /dev/null 2>&1 c_system_deb=$?
And then tests and exits at…
if [ $c_system_rpm = 0 -a $c_system_deb = 0 ] || [ $c_system_rpm != 0 -a $c_system_deb != 0 ]; then return $C_ERR_CODE
Yet I know dpkg is installed, i.e.
⋯@⋯:~/Desktop/cnijfilter-mg5300series-3.60-1-deb$ sudo dpkg --version Debian `dpkg' package management program version 126.96.36.199ubuntu1 (amd64). This is free software; see the GNU General Public License version 2 or later for copying conditions. There is NO warranty.
How do I install thei printer using the LAN with wireless AP?
