Hi Daryl. In your Welcome email, you would have some information about the Forums, and a number of guides including a Posting Guidelines link.

I think I have my screenshots added correctly now. I tried the drivers in the link you posted but there is no change. Linux says my printer is added, looks correct but will not print.
Thanks.

I am trying to use my wireless Canon LBP6230dw. Linux 'sees' it and adds it but when I try to print to it, it says that the printer is not found.
I then downloaded the Linux driver from Canon and it's the same, it sees it, and has the correct name but says it's missing when I try to print to it.
I can print to it without issue from Windows 11. It is on the same wireless network as my router/cable internet.

Any idea how to make Linux find a printer it already sees?
Thanks!
