I have a Canon Printer imageCLASS MF3010. How to install the printer driver on fedora 23 (64-bit)? I've downloaded the driver from canon's website. And this same driver works on Xubuntu. I know it because I've used this driver to print documents under Xubuntu. To install the driver on Xubuntu, the command was

$ sudo ./

I ran the same command under Fedora 23 but it didn't get installed. Under Xubuntu, after installation of the driver in the last line it was written "Complete" after which I could print. Now here in Fedora too, I saw "Complete" but when I try to test print a page, nothing happens. I got the following above the word "Complete":

# Install Printer Driver (rpm -Uvh)

# cups restart
service cups restart
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart  cups.service


I have also added the printer by going to All Settings -> Printers. Then Fedora searched for the driver in "Software" but couldn't find it. So, now if the click on the button "Print Test Page" nothing happens.

This is the link to Canon's website from where I downloaded the driver

Name of the printer driver is: Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V310_uk_EN.tar.gz

After extracting it, when I read the "README-ufr2-3.1xUK.txt" I was surprised to find this -

Evaluated OS: Fedora 22 32-bit/64-bit Ubuntu 15.04 Desktop 32-bit/64-bit

Now, if Canon has evaluated and tested this driver under Fedora 22 that means it works. Why doesn't it work under Fedora 23? Or did I mess up somewhere in the installation?
