So for Christmas my Mother got a Cannon Image Class MF4880dw Printer. I have Ubuntu 12.03 setup on her Laptop. I'm trying to get this printer to work via WIFI. I had figured that network printers wouldn't require drivers..

I see that on Cannon's website there are not any drivers.

Is there any other way of using this printer or do I need drivers?

I managed to get it printing, using the drivers for the ImageCLASS MF4450.

However, it looks like scanning is not supported.
