Hi, my name is ***** ***** certified professional with over 10 years experience. I will be glad to assist you with this.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue. Unfortunately the Canon MG2450 printer requires a computer with Windows or Mac operating system to install the software and drivers. The Chromebook only works with Google CloudPrint compatible printers. I am sorry about this. Here is a link with the list of those printers>http://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/printers.html#info-canon

Customer:

Thanks.Do I have the option of getting rid of Chrome and installing one of the other two?

Randy Internet Tech :

no, unfortunately the Chromebooks will not run an operating system like Windows or Mac.
