according to the official page: (select os and drivers): There is no driver for the OS Version you selected. The driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver.

Canon don't approve of Linux and don't make drivers for it for any of their hardware - pretty stupid huh!

Have you tried using Wine and Canon's Windoze drivers?

I've been using the very same Canon MP610 with Linux for a couple of years, and I don't use Wine. I'm pretty sure the printer worked just by configuring it through CUPS without adding a driver.
