Drivers for Linux

Hello,

I am a Linux user and just bought the Pixma MX300. Much to my disappointment, the machine doesn't work due to driver issues. I've done a search and have found solutions but these solutions are too difficult to understand. I'm a Linux user, not an Linux expert.

Has Canon addressed this issue?

I've had to use guttenprint 5 to set up non-supported printers in linux, have you tried that?
I found a fix, though! Simply use the already installed "Canon PIXMA MP150 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.0.1" driver. It seems to be printing fine. You can copy and fax stand alone still on the unit itself. I guess that we will have to wait for a real driver to take advantage of the onboard scanner. Hope that this helps!

Easily fixed, simply visit this link here for the canon support site:

Make sure you click the drivers & downloads tab, select your correct operating system, and you can download all the software and drivers for this unit that would have come w/ it. In fact the user manual in PDF should be there as well.

Canon pixma mx 300 won't send or receive fax


Dear friend,
it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."

Greetings from Cologne (Germany) to the UK!
