Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I think you should try getting a Linux driver from Canon's website for this printer model.

Unfortunately, for the MG3120 and MG3122, Canon lists no Linux drivers at all. That site does hint, though, that standard printer drivers for Linux ought to serve for this printer.

You may not get all the functions, but 'installing it as' a different but analogous model, may serve for basic purposes of using this printer with ubuntu Linux.
