I have installed my Canon MF8280Cw printer on Elementary OS with the UFRII-driver (the same it worked in Linux Mint). The problem is, that the job is sent, but the printer makes a beep and then nothing happens. Do anybody have the same problem?

Thanks a lot!

  • Did you install UFRII using the install.sh script? I'm having a similar issue but with the scanner. askubuntu.com/questions/827406/canon-mf229dw-wont-scan Sep 20, 2016 at 13:34
  • Yes I used the UFRII - then took the suggested networkprinter; took the right driver, but it won´t print. The printer makes a noise but it´s not printing... How can I delete the installed UFRII driver, so that I can start from scratch?

  • Download the UFR installer/packages again. Go into 64bit/Debian folder and uninstall both .debs using Gdebi. Sep 21, 2016 at 14:42
