For this I would suggest you that you should try downloading the drivers from the canon website which will be compatible with the linux OS. So for this you should try getting the drivers from the canon website of the linux version and then install it onto your PC. After which you will able to take the printouts.

From here you can download the drivers for the linux OS as you were looking for. But this is for the asia region, as you have not mention about which region you are looking for. so I?m assuming you want for the asia region and providing according it.

As I have downloaded the drivers for the Canon PIXMA MX870 printer but when I tried to install the drivers on the ubuntu OS it is not able to install it on the PC. So is the drivers downloaded is not appropriate or is there any other way of installing which I?m not knowing about it.

So if anyone having appropriate knowledge about installing the drivers in the ubuntu OS then please share the same with me.
