Ubuntu / Debian Linux drivers for the Canon MX 922 and other MX series multifunctions

It seems that the Canon MX series of multifunction devices is sufficiently new that no one (including the U.S. arm of Canon itself) has bothered to release updated support documentation for the product line. To save you the trouble of digging through mounds and mounds of outdated help pages, then, here’s a direct link to the official Canon Linux driver package for the MX 920 series (which should work for most other MX devices as well):

    2014-01-06 – Running the included shell script enabled printing with a Canon MX922 over wireless LAN on Ubuntu 12.04.3 for me. Just installing the appropriate .DEB file did not work. Thanks much!

      Me again! Same printer/system w Ubuntu 13.10: installing these .deb files and using Printer Setup from the Ubuntu Control Panel achieved proper network operation. Cheers!

    Thanks. These worked great, much better than the auto-detected Lexmark drivers.

    Very nice, thank you! That was literally the most painless setup I’ve ever done for a wireless printer.
