The only way to improve quality of the print is to do the research of reverse engineering the specific driver related instructions and updating the pixma foomatic driver.

I recommend to install the original Canon Drivers. I've got a Canon Pixma MP630 and it works without problems. You should install the scanner and the printer driver.

Canon has chosen not to provide official support for Ubuntu, and this limits what you can do. You can't use it with gscan2pdf, for example.

In the folder I run the install.sh script and ...

My MX350 on 11.04 wasn't working either. I had ia32-libs installed, but the install of cnijfilter-common_3.30-1_i386.deb still complained of missing i386 deps.
