Canon MX700 network printer

Trying to set up my Canon MX700 all-in-one as a printer on my network. N predefined drivers available on 9.10 rel. Tried Pixma mp830 but printer just prints a blank page. Canon of course shows no drivers for Linux. Any ideas?

Not too sure about the MX700. I've got an MX860 that's working fine though. Installed the cups-bjnp package from Sourceforge (it's probably also in the Ubuntu repos). Then I just added the printer using the CUPS web interface (localhost:631). I used bjnp://MyPrinterIP:8611 for the Device URI and then selected the Pixma iP4600 as the printer driver. Prints fine over the network. Again, not sure if the same would work for your model, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents.
