I have jolicloud 1.2 (Based on the Long Term Support (LTS) version of Ubuntu (10.04) installed on a Dell Latitude D430.  The laptop connects to my home network (Windows based) and the internet via the built-in wireless card.  I have a Canon PIXMA MG5320 on the network wirelessly also, with Windows systems printing to it (Windows 7) without issue.  However, I cannot locate the correct driver to use with jolicloud/Dell D430.  The printer can be found on the network, through Jolicloud, but does not find any driver through the built-in driver search function.  Can someone provide insight on how locate and install a compatible driver for the MG5320?  Thanks!

    Ok, I followed the 8-step process within the post at ubuntuforums and there was only a flash of the terminal window after clicking the file.  Then, I attempted to install one of the packages entitled 'cnijfilter-mg5300series_3.60-1_i386.deb' and it appeared to progress normally, then received a message in the package manager window 'Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: cnijfilter-common (>= 3.60)'.  Screenshot attached.  What is causing this?

    The package cnijfilter-common (version 3.6 or above) is missing on your machine. Maybe the didn't work on your machine?

    It works!  I read your comment and realized I needed to install the 'common' accessory package that was provided with the download, then install the model specific driver.  Now jolicloud is fully-functional.  Thanks very much for your help!!
