I have recently been given a new printer - Canon MP272. Just tried to get it going under linux and have had no joy
The auto installer under Linux Mint Debian Edition can not find a the correct drivers,
I have searched the web and found a couple of links to the Canon site hosted in Europe.
I was thrilled to find a .deb install but when I tried to action I got a nasty error:
dpkg: error processing cnijfilter-mp270series_3.20-1_i386.deb (--install):
package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
Errors were encountered while processing: cnijfilter-mp270series_3.20-1_i386.deb
So it seems that the driver is only applicable for i386 systems - old skool!
Has anyone else encountered and perhaps even resolved this issue? Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
