    For anyone trying to help, that is a Canon Pixma printer.

    Did you install any driver for the printer? If so, what one and where did you get it from?

    That's interesting. The device uses a USB connection? Give the outputs of
    Code:
    lpoptions -l iP2800-series
    Code:
    lsusb -v | grep -A 3 bInterfaceClass.*7
    Code:
    systemctl list-units "ippusbxd*" | grep service

    I'm sorry, but you will have to wait for someone with Canon experience to wander by. I learned a long time ago to stick with HP printers since they just seem to always work.

    does not show any printer connected. This could be why there isn't any output from the third command. Is the device connected and switched on?

    What does this command show?
    Code:
    $ systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled --no-pager|grep cups
    org.cups.cupsd.path                enabled disabled      
    org.cups.cupsd.service             enabled disabled      
    org.cups.cupsd.socket              enabled disabled


    Same as mine?

    Also do you still have this file?
    Code:
    /usr/lib/systemd/system/org.cups.cupsd.service
