Canon MP130 printer install on Linux Mint 17


I used CUPS and clicked on Admin Tab, provided needed username and password, then clicked on add a printer. The list doesn't include the name MP130, so how do I know what to choose from the list? Thanks for any help.

This is the same driver I suggested in your original post, have you even tried it?
