Doesn't work with 64 bit linux distributions
on 20 April 2011
A disappointment. Firstly the USB cable was missing from the package. Secondly, while Canon provide 32 bit drivers for linux, they don't make 64 bit drivers available. I spent about 5 hours trying to compile the drivers from the source code, but it didn't build properly, even after installing all the dependencies. Looking at linux support forums, it seems that very few people can get the drivers to compile properly, and those that can are experts in linux systems programming. I followed their instructions, since they said the Canon instructions were incorrect. I got a bit further, but still couldn't get the drivers to compile.
So in summary, if you're running a 64 bit Linux distribution, avoid until Canon provide working drivers for Linux. I imagine this is typical for Canon printers, so you'd be better off choosing a different manufacturer.
