Canon provides Linux drivers for the Canon PIXMA MG5250 All-in-One printer at http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010889.asp. These drivers provide support for Feodora, Ubuntu and OpenSUSE since Fedora 12 (32 & 64 bit), Ubuntu 10.04 (32 & 64 bit) and open SUSE 11.2 (32 & 64 bit), respectively.
The driver is installed after downloading the file MG5200series-printer_driver.tar and decompressing the Tar file nijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb.tar.gz in the following way:
cd Downloads cd MG5200series-printer_driver cd cnijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb sudo ./install.sh
This will install the program scangearamp which is used to access the scanner of the All-in-One printer.
