Installing gz file


cnijfilter-source-3.80-1 this is an unzipped file
for a driver for a Canon MG3250 printer. I have
tried to install it with no success. I am running FC17

Any ideas appreciated.

looks like it contains source files. You need to compile it before installing. There should be a readme file somewhere inside that zip file about it.
