Question
Hello, Mr. Davis. I recently purchased a Canon Pixma MG3522 all in one printer. Unfortunately, my newly installed Linux Mint 16 Petra Cinnamon OS won't allow my external usb drive to open and install the software. Without that, I cannot adapt my wifi to my Gateway LT2022u Netbook device. The disk says Windows and MAC OS only. I have tried using my Lint Mint 16 printer installment site, but the list seemed to have every Canon printer except Pixma MG3500 series. Are there Canon printers listed on my Linux Mint that are compatible with my Pixma MG3522. The usb route wasn't successful either with finding make and model match. Thank you very much, sir.

Answer
the closest match is the pixma 3540.... typically you will find this stuff on european sites... link is below
