Canon MP620 with Linux (Debian)

First install cups:
apt-get install cupsys

Then go to the configuration page for cups: http://locahost:631
Select Add Printer, and when asked for Device type, simply select ipp. In the next step simply type the printers IP. If you are unsure about the IP, scan your network with nmap like this:
nmap -sP (will scan entire C-class network)
and the IPs for the printer will show up.

Next step it will probably ask for what printer you have, and it also gives you the option to add a ppd(driver). Go to this page and download and extract the english ppd you need. Next upload the ppd, and your printer shall now be ready to go :)
