I'm trying to install my Canon iP7250 printer on a fresh install of 13:10 64bit. Last time I installed it successfully via http://handytutorial.com/install-canon-printer-driver-for-ubuntu-13-04-12-10-12-04 which entailed adding a repository via the terminal and then updating it. I then opened Synaptic and searched for my printer model and Synaptic then installed everything.

This time round I added the repositories but the update failed with the following error:

Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/michael-gru...amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/michael-gru...-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

An internet search failed to find another way of installing this printer so I'm stuck. My laptop also runs 64 bit 13:10 and the printer works, as I installed it months ago. Is there any way I can take something off that to use on this new machine?

Thank you all in advance

P.S. I have just found and downloaded the official Canon driver from the Canon website and extracted it, but I don't know how to install it.

Please see if this helps, askubuntu.com/questions/174474/…. To install the official drivers from Canon, you need to extract the tar files and run the scripts contained therein. –  Masroor Oct 26 '13 at 17:39
    
Thanks for the reply, but I'm not very technical. Is there an easier way? –  Chris Burmajster Oct 26 '13 at 17:50
    
You can at least try installing the Canon official drivers and see if they work. They are fairly easy to install. –  Masroor Oct 27 '13 at 0:06

A search on Duck Duck Go brought me to answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups/+question/226171 where I managed to add another repository and managed to install the printer driver that way. Thank you to all of you for your help. –  Chris Burmajster Nov 2 '13 at 15:09
