Question about Canon PIXMA MX300 All-in-One Printer

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!
