Ubuntu: install canon printer mb5000



Question:

I want to install a LAN printer on ubuntu 14.04 LTS: Canon Maxify MB5000.
CUPS finds the printer but I can't find any suitable driver when installing with CUPS (I chose one of another printer).
Is there any?

When I want to print a test page, nothing prints. The printing task disappears after a few second without any error.

Thanks


Solution:1

Canon UK provides Linux drivers for MB5040 and MB5050, probably worth a try.

https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/products/fax__multifunctionals/inkjet/maxify_mb_series/maxify_mb5050.aspx?type=drivers&language=&os=Linux%20(64-bit)

This driver works for our MB2300 series.
