Canon PIXMA MG2522

I bought a Canon MG2522 so I could print school work. I use a Chromebook laptop. The disc that came with the printer I can't view because my laptop doesn't have that feature. I'v been trying to set my printer up and it won't let me. All online files that can be downloaded are for Mac's or Windows and mine uses neither. I've also tried to set it up manually and I can't get it. If someone could help me with this I will be very grateful. I don't want to have to return it back to the store.

Greetings,

The issue you are experiencing is related to your operating system, not your Canon device. 

Set up your printer - Chromebook Help (google.com)

Unfortunately, Chrome OS has limited hardware support.  Its more of an experiment or toy.  It holds just 0.42 percent of the desktop OS market share worldwide.  You'd be better served using a PC that runs windows or mac os in the long run.  You'll avoid these types of headaches.

Hello Jade25bowman,

The MG2522 is compatible with Mac and Windows computers and was not designed for use with a Chromebook. We do have models that will work but the MG2522 is not one of them. The MG2522 is usually sold through Wal-Mart and two current models at Wal-Mart that will work would be the TS3322 and the TS3522.

I'm going through the exact same thing. I've tried everything, but still nothing. I had no idea how much it takes to set up a dang WIRED printer. Nor did i have any idea the printer wouldn't be compatible with my chromebook. Surely there's a way around all this mess.. any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I really don't want to return the printer for a different one.
