Unhappy Having trouble getting Canon PIXMA MX330 Printer to work


Hi, I'm new to this forum and to Linux. I know zippo,except that i have fedora. I have the Canon PIXMA MX330 printer and even went so far a to download the driver which I had to go to the Canon Australian website for. I can print a test page, but then after that it doesn't print anything else even if it shows on the qeue. I know the computer is communicating with the printer so I don't know what to do, can someone help please! I'm desperate! Thanks.

Fedora should recognize,and install drivers for your printer the second you connect it. What version of Fedora do you have? Try looking on google, or on Canon's website for printer drivers.

True, but some printers are flaky with generic drivers.

I could not find the Pixma MX330 at the Open Printing Database.

I did find Pixma MX340. It might be worth a shot.

Otherwise, you could try some of the earlier ones.

That site is not marked as solved but it is.
I'm not sure if fedora is rpm, but it says packages available for them also.

Yes, Fedora is RPM based.
