Smile Where do find printer driver for canon iP7220 printer running on LINUX 14.0


Greetings:

I have a canon pixma printer, model iP7220. Where do I find a printer driver for LINUX. I am running LINUX 14.0. I have tried several supposed sources but they go nowhere. Does anybody have any ideas?

Canon's Linux support, at least in North America, is less than exemplary.

I could not find that printer at the Open Printing Database.

If by "Linux 14.0," you mean Ubuntu 14.0, this post from the Ubuntu forums might help: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2228708

Smile Canon Pixma iP7220

I have tried the suggested procedure: Download the appropriate files, Moved them to the Terminal, tried to use /install sh. It tells me "DENIED". What am I missing?

there is no operating system called "LINUX 14.0"

now there is a old ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10
and a old slackware 14.0 from 2012

you do need to be root to do that

If this is Ubuntu there is on real root account so use "sudo"
Code:
cd To/The/Location/Of/The/File 
sudo ./install.sh

It could be that the script is not executuable until you set the executable bit.

What is the output of

Code:
ls -l install.sh
If the script is not executable, run the command, as root,

Code:
chmod +x install.sh
Also, as John_VV pointed out, it would help to know precisely what distro/version are you running? If you are not sure, you can run the command cat /etc/*release* (that's sort of a catchall; it works on most distros).
