This question already has an answer here:
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite and have today purchased a Canon PIXMA MG 3150 printer.
Ubuntu can't find the drivers online and the CD I have is "obviously" for ... you guessed it Windows.
I've taken the printer out of the box, plugged it all in as recommended, the laptop sees the new device but the device is not listed, I tried to open a similar printer from the list (canon PIXMA 3100 series) it tells me it is printing the test page but nothing happens on the printers end. do I need to do anything else?
Can someone give me some pointers were as to find the solution please?
