I'm running Ubuntu Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS bionic. My printer is Canon MX926. It's connected to a router HUAWEI HG658 via cable and wifi. My PC is connected via wifi. Can anyone help me get this printer printing from the computer? I've referred to this question but doesn't work for me.

I looked into the printer network settings on the printer itself and ip is 192.168.1.2. I boldly reset wlan settings which may have been a mistake. But I tried to set up the lan and wlan again on the printer, which seemed to connect to the router with the same IP.

I have these screens: enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here The other option in the dropdown is localhost The other option in the dropdown is localhost enter image description here

No test page will print. No test pages work

Do you need more information about this?

If it is not already done, install Smb4K on your computer. It can greatly help with remote printers. I could not reach my printer until I did that.

  • I'm unable to install smb4k. See edited question. – Joe Jan 25 at 7:30
  • Smb4K can be easily installed from 'Ubuntu Software' - just type 'Smb4K' to find it. – Dominik Cornice Jan 25 at 8:17
  • Still didn't find it :-( . see update – Joe Jan 25 at 10:12
