I am having problems installing my canon mp620 wireless printer. The system sees the printer but when I try to print a test page it only adds to the print cue without completing the task.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I had the same problem with the Canon MP620 (on Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04) and fixed it by following the advice here.

One of the posts suggests using BJNP, a protocol used by Canon printers. Following this advice, I tried adding the printer using the device URI: "bjnp://", where '' is the printer IP address.

You may have to make an exception for the relevant port in UFW to get the scanner to work, in this case:

sudo ufw allow 8611

After that I found both printing and scanning work flawlessly.

Hope that helps.
