Google search 'cups canon i255'. You'll find multiple howtos. Since you don't specify your distribution and release, I can tell which would be best for you.

Help! I am using kubunto 10.04. Now I have installed turboprint but I tried printing but it is always 'idle'.

Should I use CUPS or turboprint?
