Hi Haidi,

The openprinting.org site, here,
says that canon has released drivers for your printer, here.

I've only packaged up the printer drivers, as I think getting the scanner working could be more of a problem, and we can maybe try crossing that bridge another day.

So basically, download the .pet from here (1Mbyte), install the .pet then, hopefully, if you start the cups-printer wizard, from the menu, it will detect the included .ppd file & give that as an option to install, & use, the 210.

Let us know how you get on.
