  • Try to plug-in your printer to your system first. If a driver for your model is available, the system will recommend the driver for you and assist you in the installation. If not, click this link Your text to link here...

    Once, you have downloaded the .tar file, uncompress it.
    $ tar -x MP280series_printer_driver.tar
    $ tar -xzf cnijfilter-mp280series-3.40-1-deb.tar.gz
    $ cd cnijfilter-mp280series-3.40-1-deb
    $ sudo ./

    Once the driver gets installed successfully, try to re-plug you Canon
    printer to your Kubuntu system.

  • I did a search on and the reply was this: "There is no software for the OS Version you selected." I have one of these printers too, and have the same problem, but can use it with my other computers, using Windows OS.
