Canon is one of the largest printer manufacturer in the world, unfortunate canon never include linux / ubuntu driver in each product that we buy, in other words Printer driver only available in Windows and Machintos. This problem sometimes inconvenient us while try to use the printer, but referencing to this page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CanonCaptDrv190, some canon printers can work properly in ubuntu and some driver has available in PPA. So you do not have to worry anymore.


If you have any canon printer, and met some difficulties while try to install it on ubuntu, we hope this will be your solution, before start the installation, add Canon Driver PPA repository through following command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update
