To install this Canon printer driver for Ubuntu you need to add the PPA below in your Ubuntu system. Open a "terminal" window and copy and paste these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:michael-gruz/canon
sudo apt-get update

Make sure to disconnect the Canon printer from your computer first.

Now copy and paste your appropriate install command based on your printer:

sudo apt-get install cnijfilter-ip4200series

After the Canon printer driver is installed, connect the Canon printer to your computer and turn it on. Your printer will automatically be detected by the system.
