You really should be enclosing your commands and output within code tags (refer to the '#' button in the forum editor). This looks a mess to read, and I don't believe you really typed it like that. If you did, it's not going to work!

Typically when you download an archive package to your ~/Downloads folder, the payload needs extracting first. This can be done using your file manager graphically if necessary (usually by right-clicking > unpack here or similar). Then you'll end up with a folder....just as an example ~/Downloads/cnijfilter-mg5200series-3.40-1-deb. Some effort will be required on your part to understand these basic concepts. Take a careful look look with your desktop file manager first to determine the path to the locations of the files.

Yes, it can be a challenge when we're not able to be at the same machine. You're close to getting this working, and ordinarily you could do this graphically (without the need for a terminal), but the 'cnijfilter-mg5200series' package has a dependency on libtiff that makes it necessary to use the 'dpkg --force-all' option (or I guess you could find an old libtiff package and install first). You can blame Canon for not keeping the drivers current. Anyway, do you prehaps know any other Linux users close by that might be able to assist with this? Once that last package is installed you should then be able to configure your printer with the graphical Mint printer utility.

PS: You're never too old to use Linux, but I agree that having a break from this issue is probably a good idea. I often find when things aren't going as expected, that taking a break from the problem is beneficial. Take care.
