Has anyone managed to do this?

I have never had a Canon, but they don't have a great rep for Linux support.

I did find the ip4000 at Linuxprinting; it might help get you on the right track: http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Canon/Canon-iP4000

There's also an article at the Ubuntu wiki that might help: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...Printers/PIXMA
