Printer installation - can't find driver file


Hi
I downloaded from Canon and ran the script to install a Canon Pixma MG2950. It said "Installation complete"
I fixed the IP address of my printer and the PC found it.

But it can't find the drivers - how can I direct it to the correct driver?

Thanks

Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. We're happy to try to help, but you need to provide details first. We don't know what version/distro of Linux you have, where you got this script/package, how you ran it, etc. Without details we can't help.
