    Print driver needed for Canon PIXMA Ip100

    I'm working on my 'mobile office' solution, and have a Xoom WiFi with charging dock & B/T keyboard. Keyboard is very easy to use, btw, and transitioning to it from a regular full size keyboard has been effortless...

    I got this Canon PIXMA Ip100 printer with the Bluetooth USB interface option, and am able to print just fine to it with a regular Windows machine. I'm also able to print from the Xoom to the regular WiFi printer on our network (using PrinterShare or similar), but I'm not able to locate an Android driver for this Pixma printer, and so cannot print from Xoom to Ip100..

    I would be very surprised if there wasn't a driver for this cool little printer...any thoughts??

    Android doesn't have printer drivers. Only way to print from Android is with a printer app, like printer share. I have gone with the Google cloud print method... as long as the printer is hooked up to a computer running the cloudprint server it will work and there will be no need for the drivers also you can print from anywhere which is awesome!

    Yeah, I guess I'll have to talk with PrinterShare to see if they can incorporate an IP100 driver in their set...they have a ton of Canon drivers, just not that particular one.

    I've installed Cloud Print, and have occasionally been able to print test pages, but until now I haven't had much luck with its performance (but that discussion's to be left to another forum)

    You could try Printbot. Only prints PDF and image files from what I can see though. They have a free try before you buy version though so nothing to lose. In the meantime if you need a working printer now, the Canon MP495 works fine and its dirt cheap, though not nearly as small as the one you have. Paid $49 bucks for mine at Walmart. It uses wifi instead of Bluetooth.
