New end user to fedora 25. Added Canon MX880 series printer driver to software but no way to print as print test page not found in settings. Print job from Liber writer is going to the que but reads stopped when checking on print status. Reloaded printer several times but no change. What am I missing? Also restarted ASUS computer to update upgrades. georgia23

@sixpack13, remove the code block formatting around the links, so that they are clickable please, in case people need to go to those sites.
