Re: Canon Pixma MG5200 Series Printers and Ubuntu
The MG5200 has built in wireless networking. You can connect it to your wireless router through the settings in the printer's control panel / LCD screen. I'm not sure mine even has an ethernet port (it's 3 floors down and I'm too lazy to go look).

I doubt that you'll need to uninstall the driver. For Ubuntu, just try System->Administration->Printing. Click the Add button. Expand the Network Printer option on the left and wait a few (1-10) seconds. It should refresh and show the Canon-MG5200-series_xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx. Select that printer, click Forward, it should search for and find the driver.
