Been there, done that - one reason I recommended avoiding Canon printers....

If this works, go for it. Does this mean that Canon is coming around,
finally? Two years ago, they didn't acknowledge that Linux was
anything other than a nose-up-turner....
(I'd still stick with Brother or HP. If the Canon ink cartridges are
the newer, electronically aware/controlled kind, I'll be surprised if
you don't want to switch soon enough anyway.)
Best of luck anyway.
