easy way to install driver canon pixma mx328 on ubuntu 11.04

Also a little hesitant when I want to buy a printer Canon MX328, because as we all know that Canon is usually only include a driver CD for Windows and Mac operating systems (CMIIW), whereas I am used to using Ubuntu 11.04 compared to Windows 7.

I think it's no big deal, because there is now a PPA that provides a variety of printers made ​​by Canon driver, so the Ubuntu users can easily install the drivers just by typing a few command line in Terminal

To add a PPA that I mean, please type the following command in Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update

Then to install the Canon Pixma MX328 driver, we select the driver Canon Pixma MX320. Here's the command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-mx320series

finished already, just only three commands, you just try it ;)

How to Restore GRUB2 in Ubuntu 11.04

Losing GRUB2 happen again this time, this happens because I have updated the originally installed Windows 7 on my netbook. Like it or not, I can't use Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal or BackTrack 5 Revolution, the Operating System only can access directly into Windows 7. For this time, I posted how to restoring GRUB2 on Ubuntu 11.04. A simple step that is as follows :

1. Boot to Netbook with LiveUSB Ubuntu 11.04

2. Select "Try Ubuntu without Installing"

3. if already in ubuntu desktop, open terminal with keyboard key combination CTRL + ALT + T

4. Type sudo fdisk -l
This command serves to find the location of your linux root. In my case, I found in sda9

5. Then type sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt

6. Then type sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda

7. And then, update GRUB with the command sudo update-grub

8. The last, reboot Netbook with the command sudo reboot from your terminal.

Don't forget to change the setting boot loader from USB to hard drive in the BIOS.
