Try to plug-in your printer to your system first. If a driver for your model is available, the system will recommend the driver for you and assist you in the installation. If not, click this link Your text to link here...

Once, you have downloaded the .tar file, uncompress it.
$ tar -x MP280series_printer_driver.tar
$ tar -xzf cnijfilter-mp280series-3.40-1-deb.tar.gz
$ cd cnijfilter-mp280series-3.40-1-deb
$ sudo ./install.sh

Once the driver gets installed successfully, try to re-plug you Canon
