Canon MX-870 not responding on LinuxMint DE 16 64 bit
I am not able to get a Canon MX-870 printer to print using LinuxMint DE 16 64 bit. When I install it going through Menu, Administration, Printer Settings and add it and then do a test print it tells me that it is not responding. This method uses the CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.9 driver.
When I try to install it using cups it doesn't find the printer. I am not sure what the printer is called or even what type of network printer it is so when I add it I tell it ipp://192.168.1.100 which is the ip address of the printer.
I have tried installing different respositories but I always get a lot of 404's not found. and then it can't find the driver.
I haven't been able to grab a screen and paste it in here yet or I would have.
The scanning works great using Xsane. I wish there was a program like Xsane for printing. Maybe I am just not ready for Linux.
