I think you can find the Linux driver and the installation instructions here:


You have to download the file, open the file with an archive manager, find the deb-directory, (maybe) make the files in that directory executable and run the shell script that is included.

I have a Canon Pixmania MP250. It works with the Linux driver from the canon-europe site.
