I followed instructions from serveral pages (e.g. here) to install Canon ip2600 printer drivers that were discussed for Ubuntu 12.04 or earlier as follows:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip2600series
After that, the printer is listed and a printer properties window can be open. Trying to print anything fails with a message "Processing - Waiting for printer to become available." next to printer state.
Does anybody know how to get the printer to work? I am running Ubuntu 12.10 on 64 bit.
