    Setup of Canon TS8050

    Iam trying without success to install/setup my new Canon TS8050 All-In-One.
    Has anyone succeeded?
    I downloaded and installed scanmanagearmp but when I went to add the printer I get a message "Additional software Required" but does not state what this is.
    any help much appreciated

    Canon on Linux is a pain. And on Fedora Linux is sever pain. You may get your printer print O.K after installation, but just after reboot system it may be no longer print !

    Also, new SELinux policy on Fedora 26 can create a problem to you .....

    Also, there is something to enabled at start up manually (read document with drivers). This mean that you need to edit system files !

    This mean a headache !

    Better is to buy Hp printer/scanner

    Fedora 26 X64 bit Cinnamon edition on Lenovo ThinkPad e550 with Intel core i7 5500 CPU @ 2.40 GH X 2, RAM = 8 GB, HHD = 1 TB, Hybrid VGA (Intel Corporation HD Graphic 5500 + Radeon R7 M265 2GB)

    Re: Setup of Canon TS8050

    The issue partly arises from Fedora using kernels and modules far newer than the drivers Canon provide support. I've never had much joy with official Canon device drivers. In Windows I ended up compiling my own Vista 64-bit driver for the LiDE 50 scanner I have because they never released any. I still use them to this day with Windows 8.1 64-Bit.

    Oddly enough, it just works with the Fedora 64-bit SANE backend drivers scanners package installed.

    And yes HP Linux printer support is far superior but you still need to check in the hplip website's database for the level of support offered.
