You should be able to install your printer in Ubuntu without needing to look for drivers (search for Canon in the Software Centre). It will show up in Samba once you have it installed.

@Chikri: I will have to see if there is not a question on this already (I think there is), and if there is I'll point you to that. – RolandiXor Mar 9 '12 at 4:47
