Canon mg5320 printer shows on screen, but will not print.

Asked by Christian Lunsford on 2020-06-24

I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 and I connected my Canon Prixma mg5320 series printer. It shows up in my list of printers, but will not print a test page or anything else. I have tried multiples ways, but there doesn't seem to be any success. I would appreciate any help given.

This question was reopened

Does anything happen when you send a print?
How did you install the drivers (If you installed any yourself)?

Any drivers that were installed were done automatically when I connected the printer to my computer. When I try to print anything the screens says, “Could not start printer. Please check your printer configuration.”

Can't see it being a million miles away.

Seems it's supported by TurboPrint though (not free)

I don't think it'll work but others may be able to advise.
