How to Setup / Install Canon InkJet Pixma IP1300 / Canon InkJet Pixma IP1600 on Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 12.04

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to setup and install Canon InkJet Pixma IP1300 or Canon InkJet Pixma IP1600 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

The instructions needed for installing both Canon printers are the same, so I have merged two installation guides into one.

Add the repo for the new driver:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon-stable

Update the system:

$ sudo apt-get update

Remove the printer installed in CUPS and make sure your printer is disconnected from the computer.

Install the new driver:

$ sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip2200series

Restart the CUPS service:

$ sudo service cups restart

Choose /usr/share/cups/model/canonip2200.ppd as the ppd driver for the printer.

This is everything. Enjoy.
