    could not detect the target printer

    I'm trying to install a Canon printer on 18.04. From a Canon website, I downloaded and installed the driver package, called cnijfilter2-5.50-1-deb. The driver installed successfully, but when it came to registering the printer, I got "could not detect the target printer". I'm attempting a USB connection, and I have no reason to think that anything is physically wrong with the connection. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Have you plugged it directly to the computer (no hubs)? Can you see the printer in lsusb?

    Yes, printer is connected directly to the computer. No hubs. When I run the lsusb command, I don't see the printer.
