Typically, but if it's a really obscure printer, it may try to install the closest known driver and go from there,


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

CANON is one of those companies that stopped supporting windows 64 bit systems but kept making solid drivers for unix and linux early on. Most CANON printers work amazingly well. I have an old CANON and a Brother B/W laser printer that are connected to a Ubuntu 19.04 machine because there are no current drivers for windows available anymore. For older stuff, Linux is a really good option. In your case, there are official drivers from CANON, so you should be good to go. Happy printing.

open a terminal

 

cd ~/Downloads

 

This moves you to the locations of your downloads

 

tar -xf FILENAME

 

this will extract the files from the tarball(name for compression)

 

cd NEWFOLDER

 

this chnages your directory to the location that you extracted

 

sudo ./installer.

 

This runs the installer in the tarball.
