How can I get my Canon Pixma MX 310 Printer to work with Ubuntu?

Is it the printer or the scanner or both that don't work? – Allan Feb 19 '11 at 22:22
I dont have the driver for both. – skypemesm Feb 19 '11 at 23:06
For the printer and for the scanner . If you are successful at getting either or both to work please add an answer. I don't have that particular printer so can't test the effectiveness of the fixes. Good luck – Allan Feb 20 '11 at 13:50

Go to the Canon website:

Download the MX320 driver (the driver contains all drivers) download the deb and install for both printing and scangear. This should get printing and scanning working.
