Help with connecting Cannon Pixma MP495 over Wi-Fi using Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook edition


Hello! I have recently formatted my PC (About a week ago) and installed Ubuntu-Linux 10.10. I also recently installed a Cannon Pixma MP495. Which is a Wi-Fi model. I connected the two windows PC's in my home just fine. However, I don't know how to wirelessly link it to my netbook. The Model number of the netbook is Acer Aspire One AOD205. If anyone can help on this situation that would be fantastic! Thanks!

Hopefully you have non-free contrib in your repos, to get wireless drivers.

Wink This was great...

Thanks for the URL Eddie. Very helpful indeed. I had just bought one of those Canon Printers, and I Loved it in Windows, but leaving Winders as I call it behind, I was afraid that it might be sometime before I could use it in Linux. Thank you again.
