    Greetings - and WooHoo!!! Hope it works for your Canon printer/system, too.
    Been using Ubuntu since Koala, and getting help form the forum - but THIS discovery made me register and make my first post in order to share and give back!
    After a year and a half of struggling to get my Canon ImageClass D420 to work with 64-bit Ubuntu, I can report both success and GREAT NEWS!
    Thank you all for the help and suggestions in the past - got it to work with 32-bit versions, and limited success after much tribulation with 64-bit.

    NOW! (August 5, 2013) It was so easy, my jaw dropped. Didn't even need terminal.
    1) Downloaded the driver package from Canon (first browse to page for your printer). For my D420 they now have version 2.7 (June 2, 2013).
    2) Right-click on downloaded file in your file manager and open with "Archive Manager". They have a 32-bit and 64-bit folder. Each of these has a folder for RPM and Debian (yeah - no need to convert!). Open the Debian folder.
    3) Right-click on the cndrvcups-common file first and open with "Ubuntu Software Manager"; click "Install".
    4) Repeat Step 3 for the condrvcups-UFR2 file.
    5) Turn on the printer, go to settings manager for printers, click add and wait for list to appear.
    6) At the top of my listed options was * Canon blah-blah * randon-stuff * "connected to USB". I almost picked the second choice cuz it looked better, but selected #1.
    7) It worked!! Selected "Test Print" and it actually PRINTED.
    I'll follow up on this and report on the scanner later - but don't see much hope for that.

    Moderators - I wasn't sure whether to post in this mega-thread or start a new one - your choice to bump or not.

    well done;

    so you used the Canon UFR driver that covers a big number of their printers; thanks for the details of what you did;


    for the scanner side of things; Sane is the open source area for scanners

    for the Canon ImageClass D480 one gets (if you search on D480) one can only hope the D420 is recognised as well; sane is the back-end and xsane is the front-end; if you have those installed

    so let us know how it goes but I would hope this would work for you
