# Canon MG 3500 series printer 'filter failed'

I have recently upgraded to 18.04. Prior to this my printer worked fine without any system changes. After the upgrade I get the 'filter failed' message whenever I try to print doc's, test page, etc. I have tried a few things already posted. I have un-installed and re-installed several times. I have re-intalled a similar printer.

The last thing I tried was to install the 'driver' cnijfilter-mg3500series-4.00-1-deb.tar.gz from the Canon Asia site. I installed the deb package and still get filter failed.

The Error message in /var/log/cups/error_log is;

E [14/Oct/2018:00:10:01 +1100] Unknown directive BrowseAddress on line 26 of /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

I have spent a lot of time sifting through the net with no solution.
