What esOteric is referring to is that Canon is not well-known for working and playing well with Linux.

The OpenPrinting database has no listing for that printer: http://www.openprinting.org/printers.

I checked the Canon website. They offer no drivers for Linux for that device. You may be able to get some kind of generic driver working, but I've never had to do that and am not qualified to offer advice on that topic.
