Anyone have any idea what driver might work for a canon mx310? I should have done my homework before buying...

Openprinting.org shows none. Rather sad since the CANON site *does* list a driver for OSX.

too bad the osx driver won't work, especially since it is a unix based system....

I have a useless, brand new Multi Function device I cannot use. Grrrr

Have only myself to blame.

rgreeves I can feel for you, I am in the same boat but did use mine for about a month with the other os. I broke down and bought one of the inexpensive all in one "hp" from a popular retailer that was on sale. It does not have the same quality print but does a good enough job.

I have been able to print on the MX310 using the Canon Pixma MP150 driver (CUPS). Try that out. I have done this both while connected via USB and over the network to a Windows machine. Both work fine.

The only limitation I've seen so far is that you can't print at higher than 600x600 DPI. YMMV.

I have not gotten the scanner to work yet but I'm working on it.
