Pixma MX492 will no longer print from Chromebook


I used to have no problem printing from my Chromebook.  Now it tells me I need to set up the printer.  It can't do it automatically, and it doesn't have the model listed (or any model even close to it).  I found an article about configuring the printer manually.  I entered the printer's IP address and it still takes me to the same set up page and says it can't configure my printer automatically.  I can't find anywhere on Canon's website to download the PPD (whatever that is).  Please help!

Hi mom22gr8grtz,


Once Google ended Google Cloud Print, Chromebooks use native printing support to print with supported printers.  Google made the decision not to include the PIXMA MX492 as a supported printer.  Because of this, the PIXMA MX492 is not supported with the Chrome OS.

I have the same issue trying to print from Chromebook to Canon Pixma MX492. Is the Canon Upgrade Program still an option? I'll try to reach out to the Sales Department during open hours and watch for response here as well.


thanks in advance!
