How to Install a Canon Printer or Scanner Driver in Ubuntu?

canonprinting

I tried to install the MP190 drivers, but appeared a message show me that requires to have libcupsys2. I understand that libcup2 is an update of libcupsys2.

How do I solve this? Are there proprietary drivers for my Canon printer or scanner?

Accepted Answer

PPA

I found the solution!

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

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

for older releases use ppa:michael-gruz/canon.

Finally,

sudo apt-get install [model]

Printer

Where [model] would be for:
