Be happy Canon provides the software at all! Even though the scanner and printer drivers are not .debs, they are easy enough to install. Download the cnij* and scangear* zip files appropriate for your printer from the link you provided. Unzip them in the Downloads folder. Then open a terminal and navigate into the folder that was created when you ...

Canon has their own scanning software ScanGear - I know that there is a version available for the MG2920, but you may have to wait until they produce a version for the MG3222. You could also examine the source code, or the driver for the MG2920, and see if they will work for your printer. The page with links to the source code and drivers is here

There are all kind of complex solutions, like https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompileSaneFromSource but for me they did not work. Using xsane is very easy to use, and did work for me. Install : sudo apt-get install xsane Then call : sudo sane-find-scanner Your scanner should be displayed in the result. Then call : scanimage -L If this results ...

Now (in 2016) it works well in Ubuntu, although it still took some trouble to figure out the steps. It boils down to this: Download UFR II/UFR II LT Printer Driver for Linux Version 3.10. One source is: http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/contents/ASIA/EN/0100270810.html Open a terminal (press CTRL-ALT-T). Extract the downloaded file and enter the ...

I recently installed this driver on Ubuntu 15.10 64bit. First download the driver from Canon's website. The URL has changed from previous answers. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/black-and-white-laser/mf4770n The Canon website may autodetect your browser as generic Linux instead of 32bit or 64bit. If this is the ...

I have the same model and just installed "MG5500 series IJ Printer Driver Ver. 4.00 for Linux (debian Packagearchive)" from here http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/contents/ASIA/EN/0100550602.html on Ubuntu 15.10 64bit. Just unpack, run "install.sh", connect the printer to the network and it should appear as "Other printers detected" when the installer scans ...

If you have installed the drivers from Canon, the ScanGear application is there too, and that's all you need. Run scangearmp. That command can be added into a .desktop file, like so. It can be run from within Gimp, but scanning is not dependent on that.

ScanGear is a tool that dos not need Gimp (although it can be launched from within Gimp). To run ScanGear separately: scangearmp. So, you don't need to use Simple Scan or Xsane. To have ScanGear as a separate launcher/application easily accessible, create a desktop file - more here.

You need the Canon drivers installed for the scanner too. After that you should have the ScanGear tool, that can be run with scangearmp. More here on a similar issue.

If you have installed the drivers from Canon, the ScanGear application is there too. Run scangearmp. That command can be added into a .desktop file, like so. Or run from Gimp: File-Create-SangearMP. ScanGear can save as pdf

We had similar problems with our Canon scanner. Installing updated versions of xsane and its libraries from the SANE daily ppa got us mostly functional, although the document feeder still does not work. Another problem we encountered was that the ufw firewall was blocking access to the networked scanner. If you are using ufw and the scanner is ...

I am using canon mg6170. I have the same problems as you do. To be precise, I got a driver from Canon which print almost correct color. It cannot be used smoothly because bugs turn up when using rear tray and also it offer very few adjustment options. If i use guten-print driver, no bugs except printing dark color image similar to your situation. The problem ...

I had exactly the same problem with 15.10, but with a Canon Pixma MG5250. This is how I came across your question. Apparently the Cups+Gutenprint driver uses wrong default settings. As is also the case for selecting the rear tray for standard paper. I corrected this as follows: in System Settings - Printers, right-click the printer icon and select ...

I do not think so... I checked on Canon and could not find your model (see screenshot). I try to take another model like MP5630 and they have no ppd files (driver) for Linux. Here you can find the canon printer information with ubuntu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrintersCanon Hope it help you, and wait feedback of others maybe ...
