I've successfully added my printer via Ubuntu 12.04 default drivers, but it seems the driver doesn't support using papers from the cassette tray even if I set the default preference to use the cassette only. Each time I print the document, I always check this setting, as well as the status of the cassette (there are at least 10 pieces of papers inside).


The warning message I receive from the printer is that there is no paper at the REAR tray! I don't have such issues with my Windows 7 Pro.

Please advise. Thanks!

I had the same thing with my Canon MG5150... I had printed something, and the next print order, all it wanted to do is print from the rear tray.

I removed the printer from: system settings -> printer, and then added it again. Now it seems to work fine...
