OK I am new too Linux and cannot get my Canon MP600 printer to install/work on Ubuntu 9.04. I found this on the web and followed it through:
Re: HOWTO: Canon PIXMA MP600
I HAVE FOUND THE WONDER SOLUTION FOR THE MP600 PRINTER DRIVER TROUBLE IN UBUNTU 8.10!!! !!!
Intro: I did every step described here and elsewhere,... and everywhere!
And it did not help.
Then, after a full day of script-wrestling, I had and idea ...
Development: I've unpacked all the Australians archives, made a search for "MP600.ppd" and the result was: !"canonmp600.ppd"! I did include that file in that post!
"main menu" ---> "System" ---> "Administration" ---> "Printing"
In the Printer Proprieties window, choose: Settings ---> Make and Model ---> Change ---> Provide PPD file
And select the "canonmp600.ppd".
File Type: zip canonmp600.ppd.zip (3.3 KB, 24 views)

I have saved the ppd file noted above to my desktop. Now when I get to the Provide ppd file I am presented with two options: 1) Use the new PPID as is
and 2)Try to copy the old settings over from the old PPID
I select 1) and get the message
''Printer 'MP600' requires the 'pstocanonij' program but it is not currently installed. Please install it before using this printer''
No idea what to do now. Had a look on the web and thoroughly confused myself.Grateful for any help you can give me - baby steps for me I am afraid.
All my installation has gone well apart from this.
