Ubuntu – Canon G1010 driver installation on Ubuntu 20.04


Hi I have recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 but now I am not able to get print out from my Canon Pixma G1010 USB printer. I couldn't find the driver setup for G1010 in Ubuntu 20.04. Can someone please help me to install the driver for G1010 in Ubuntu 20.04.

For any Canon printer:

You will likely find a working driver for any Canon printer by installing the cups-backend-bjnp package. To install this packager, you can use Synaptic Package Manger (install it from Ubuntu software centre if needed). Open Synaptic, search for cups-backend-bjnp, mark it for installation and apply. Then you will find the drivers for your printer (or a similar working one) by selecting Canon in the Manufacturer section.
