Canon's iP2700_Linux_Package.tar will not untar!


A Canon PIXMA iP2700 Series printer was purchased recently. The referred to driver tar file will not untar using the standard gzip!

A Canon i860 has driver files for Linux only from Japan in Japonese. I cannot read this language.

Anyone with any experience in making Canon printers function under Linux, please tell me how!
