Sorry if someone else has this same problem... I found similar, but not exactly the same.

I have a Canon Pixma MP250 connected via USB to a WinXP machine.

Running dual boot from laptop, 12.04.

When I try to add the printer (on Ubuntu machine), it doesn't show up.

Prints fine from Win7 (dual boot).

Have been unable to find a CUPS driver, but have a cnijfilter (possibly has nothing to do with any of this?).

So irritated (not at anyone)... just driving me crazy! Any help is awesome!
