Question ia32-libs needed for Mp560 install ..Non Existent --> Arch Linux .. Any suggestions ?

I have a Cannon MP560 that I am having a challenge working on my fresh install of Arch this past week. I have resarched and from what I have read it requires the ia32-libs to function but that is not available in the Arch from what I have found.

I have installed the package ( see below ) from the aur and go to set up and it finds the printer but not the driver. So after you select the printer the selection of drivers does not include the Cannon MP560 ( or any other Cannon ). The program recmends the generic which does not work as well. The funny thing is the scanner works great using simple scan but I can't get it to print.

Packages Tried -->

aur/lib32-cnijfilter-mp560 3.20-5 (10)   
    Canon IJ Printer Driver (MP560 series) (32-bit)
aur/cnijfilter-mp560 3.20-2 (9)
    Canon IJ Printer Driver (MP560 series)
aur/lib32-cnijfilter320 3.20-2 (1)
    Canon IJ Printer Driver Version 3.20 for Canon MP250, MP270, MP490, MP550, MP560, MP640 and iP4700 (32-bit, split package, edit PKGBUILD to select which
    driver(s) to build)

 Tools to set up used --> 

extra/system-config-printer-common 1.3.10-1 [installed]
    Pygtk CUPS Configuration
extra/system-config-printer-gnome 1.3.10-1 [installed]
    A CUPS printer configuration tool and status applet - GTK frontend
I have a 64 bit version of the lastest iso image from Arch repositories and built with a Openbox WM/DE.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The Arch multilib repository has all the 32 bit libs. You'll need to identify which you need and install them independantly. There is no 32 bit metapackage on Arch.
