Go here:

Install the PPA using the terminal commands provided then update and choose your drivers from the list.

Hi,

this doesn't seem to be working - is it because i'm booting into zorin (6.3 core ) from a memory stick ?

here's what i get -

live@live:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
You are about to add the following PPA to your system:

@Steve,

yes!; it is most likely because you are using a Live CD!. (Sorry about the late answer but I have only just seen this post from you!)

@Wireaddict,

you need to advise us as to what version of Zorin you are using and whether you have a 32 or 64 Bit system first!.

Your printer is not listed here:

http://ubuntuportal.com/2011/12/how-to- ... buntu.html

Is this the correct name of your printer?: Canon D420 or is it Canon MX420?. (Not saying you cannot read and write; just confirming model name!)

You can go here and download the .tar file and convert it with "Alien":

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/c ... ndSoftware

Download the file and make sure you have "alien" installed:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alien


See 2nd post here for info about how to use Alien, it is for Epson but the same applies:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4815&hilit=install+using+alien

Hope it helps.

Being a noob, I can't seem to get the Terminal to accept my instructions such as this one:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alien
I enter these instructions & this is what I get:
dave@dave-N68SA-M2S:~$ Code: Select all
Code:: command not found
dave@dave-N68SA-M2S:~$ sudo apt-get install alien
sudo: must be setuid root
dave@dave-N68SA-M2S:~$
Please tell me how to access the terminal &/or input instructions. I like Zorin OS much better than Windows except for no printer/scanner & a minor issue with the monitor mentioned elsewhere. Regards.

Hi WA,

when you click on "Select all". you must right click the command under where it states that and it is the command you should be pasting in the terminal, not the bit "Select all".

See the 2nd post again here:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4815&p=22778#p22778

as I have cleaned it up a bit.

This is how you should be starting off in the terminal using my name as an example:

wolfman@fred5:~$ sudo apt-get install alien

Let us know if this helps.

Hi again, every time I enter "sudo apt-get install alien" [without "SELECT ALL"] I still get "sudo: must be setuid root". Do I need do do something to access the root?

Hi WA,

do you have more than one user account setup on your PC?, are you logged in as "System Administrator" (= root)?, take a look here about adding user privileges for different user accounts:

Hope it helps.

Also do you have 'autologin' enabled - not a good idea for when updates/installs required! ;)

Hi again, Swarftendor37: I did have Autologin turned on til now but I just turned it off. Wolfman: mine is the only account on this computer & it is an administrator account. As such, I should have root status & be able to run sudo commands with no problem, shouldn't I? Also, shouldn't the terminal ask me for my password when I enter sudo instructions such as the ones you suggested? It doesn't [as you probably guessed]; it probably assumes I don't have root status. I'm still a noob but I finally get the drift of the terminal's response: "sudo: must must be setuid root"; it's saying that I don't have root status in spite of my administrator account status &/or it doesn't recognize that.

It appears that this issue should probably be posted in a new thread til it's resolved then I'll return to the printer [& likely scanner] & flat screen monitor screen resolution issues but that's your call. Regards.
