Just went to the Cannon website, looked for Linux downloads--it found 
that I have a 64-bit Linux system, and produced this result: (input  by 
me, since mark and copy didn't work)

Operating System                  (Linux 64 bit)
Language                               (English)

     Recommended Downloads

*There is no recommended download for the OS version you selected.*


I think you ought to take the printer back and buy some other brand. HP 
and Epson printers are well supported. I don't have any stock in either 
brand, but I do use both.
