I've got a printer, which is not listed in the list of drivers for Ubuntu.

The printers name is: Canon PC-D320

So how do I install the drivers? Where can I find them?

Go to canon website. Maybe there you can get the driver for the required platform. – Tarun Jun 20 '13 at 12:36
The problem is that canon doesn't provide drivers for other systems than Windows. (Windows 98-8) – Alvar Jun 20 '13 at 12:55

So I just had a look on this site: but I did not know, how to use the driver now (I am new on Linux). So could you help me a bit? :) I already tiped in that in my terminal: "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon" – Jenne Jun 21 '13 at 17:30
