How to print from iPad?

I have a Canon printer at home with laser ink technology. recently my brother gifted me an iPad and while browsing on it, I came across a poster which really liked so I proceeded to print it out since my printer is a wireless one and both my printer and iPad are on the same wifi. But nothing happened. Do I need to install some software on my iPad to connect it to my printer? Can anyone here tell me a possible cause and solution for my issue?

  3. From the menu options, you have to tap Print option.
  4. From printer options, choose your Canon printer model number. After this set the number of copies that you want to print.
  5. For duplex printing, press a click on On button to enable duplex printing.

  7. At last, tap on Print and execute the printing process.

In the list of recently used app, a Print icon will display at the time of printing. From here, you can check the print progress. To view the list of latest used applications, you have to press Home button on your iPad. By doing this, Print icon will display at the bottom of Home screen.
