That is a fairly old printer. Plug and play should apply for the printer portion. For the scanner, Canon does list a .deb on the printer support site. Download it. Run it (double click on it) to install.

This worked for my much newer PIXMA TR4500. None of this of-course will solve the black ink ALWAYS being low :lol:
