    I am trying to scan and print with a Canon Maxify MB5350 with my Google Pixelbook.

    I installed the Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy app' from the Google Playstore.

    Unfortunately the app' does not let my computer 'see' the printer on my network. Having spent many hours trying to find different configuration that might work, I have failed to do so.

    I now see the app' notes specify that it is only compatible with an ARM processor, I am guessing that's why I cannot use the app', since my processor is an Intel Core i7-5500U (dual-core 2.4 GHz) (CPU)

    Please can somebody help me with a solution to this problem?

    Welcome to Android Central! How about using it with Google Cloud Print? https://ugp01.c-ij.com/ij/webmanual/...rvs=gcp_2&os=a. Or are you planning on using it outside your home, and need a direct connection?

    That app is an Android app (which means Java, so it may not run on the X86 version). Google has full instructions for printing to a network printer from a Pixelbook - https://support.google.com/pixelbook.../9147058?hl=en.

    Hey all and thanks for your responses - it seems the app' is indeed not compatible with the Google Pixelboox - so I've abandoned that plan, got the app' on my Pixel 3 'phone, and it works great!

    Printing was no problem, but I wanted to be able to scan too. Now I can do both from my 'phone, and also print from the Pixelbook through Google print.

    Cheers.

    Scanning is pretty easy using the Google Drive app on your phone: https://support.google.com/drive/ans...DAndroid&hl=en
