This is more of a support request, not a bug report, so I'm going to convert it to a question. Best of luck installing your printer.

canon in north america doesn't distribute linux drivers.

google "canon asia" or "canon europe" and search both sites for a linux driver. sometimes both europe and asia will have a linux driver, other times only one will.

Can you help with this problem?
