Canon MAXIFY MB5320 Scan/Print

Howdy!

I am running Ubuntu Mate 18.04.3 LTS on an old lenovo E431 and can't get my Canon MAXIFY MB5320 to print or scan. I have downloaded and installed Debian packages from here https://www.canondrivers.org/canon-maxify-mb5320-driver-download/

These two:
cnijfilter2_5.00-1_amd64.deb
scangearmp2_3.00-1_amd64.deb

No luck.

I'm running Ubuntu Mate 18.04 LTS on an old toshiba and the Canon MAXIFY MB5320 prints out of the box, no driver needed, but I can't get it to scan on that machine.

How can I get this printer running on ubuntu so I can scrap windows on these machines?

Hello djm

Can you give details of the Toshiba so that we can compare the hardware specifications of your two (works / does not work) machines?

alternatively if you can afford the download try

sudo apt install gscan2pdf

Its normally run as GUI but you can run it as CLI if your device is not auto detected
