In this guide we will see how to install drivers for some various Canon printers as described below. The drivers will be compatible with Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot and Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narhwal, also older versions of Ubuntu are also included.

To make this possible we need to use the PPA found here which contains most drivers for different Canon printer models. So, to install this PPA under Ubuntu 11.10/11.04, open the terminal and run these two commands:

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

Now remove any old unused printer driver you have installed and disconnect your printer from your computer or turn it off. Then, install the appropriate driver from one of these commands:
