Peppermint OS 6 and wireless Canon PIXMA MG5320

Hi - I have installed the Canon PIXMA MG5320 driver within Peppermint OS (Peppermint Six stays with the 14.04 code base but moves to the 3.16 kernel) and it displays properly in 'Printers' section - I can click to print a test page and all appears to process normally but the printer doesn't print anything.  This printer works with the Locally connected (USB) Windows computer next to it and also wirelessly from another PC in the area.  I've included the printing log files from Peppeermint OS for review, in case there is evidence why it's not printing from Peppermint.  Thanks!!

Which driver did you install?

I have found that if you use the "cups-backend-bjnp" which is available via the normal ubuntu repo's (just search for it via the package manager), you can print and scan via the LAN to/from most canon printers without any issues, out of the box.

I installed a driver named 'cnijfilter-common_3.60-1_i386.deb'  Should I remove this one and install "cups-backend-bjnp" or is there a way to simply update the driver.
rindiCommented:
Yes, I would remove the one you installed and just use synaptic to install the cups-backend-bjnp.

It worked!  Thank you rindi!

As far as I know that driver works with all canon printers. It is hardly ever necessary to look for drivers that aren't included in the repo's.
