Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

10 years ago I thought I made a BIG mistake when I bought my Laser LBP800. Getting it to work with Ubuntu was disastrous.

Now, 10 years later, I thought things had improved. So I got this Canon E500 (scanner + printer).

But I was wrong! It's still disaster! I got the printing going with a download from here: http://support-in.canon-asia.com/contents/IN/EN/0100396801.html

However, I cannot get the scanner to work. I have no clue on how this should be done.

Is there anyone who has successfully got the whole thing running?

Thanks a million!
