    Can't seem to install anything I download incl. a new Cannon print

    Does anyone have any idea what this means lol I'm Technically Challenged!

    Archive: /media/CANON_IJ/MSETUP4.EXE
    End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
    a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
    latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
    the last disk(s) of this archive.
    zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/CANON_IJ/MSETUP4.EXE or
    /media/CANON_IJ/, and cannot find /media/CANON_IJ/MSETUP4.EXE.ZIP, period.

    Please Linux Guru's of the wolrd HELP!

    One cannot use .exe files with linux as you are trying.

    Go to OpenPrinting | The Linux Foundation
    and start reading at the section "Second Generation of OpenPrinting Database Pages Online!"

    Also see OpenPrinting CUPS Quick Start | The Linux Foundation

    Remember this admonition, as well

    You're trying to use a Windows install file on Linux. Won't work. You need the Linux files. Canon may or may not provide them. Canon isn't especially Linux-friendly.
