I would google drivers for it, then see if the company that created has any links in google.. They might support Linux.

My first stop is always http://www.openprinting.org/printers/

It depends on volunteers, so it's not encyclopedic, but, if you can find an answer there, life becomes much easier.

Canon's website says that its drivers are not available through Codehost: http://www.codehost.com/canon/

I've just checked and that model is listed at codehost!

Doesn't that model have a Postscript interpreter? I though that meant that you could just send the .ps output srtaight to CUPS.
