Install drivers TR8520 printer & scanner

I’ve downloaded driver for Canon TR8520 multi-function printer scanner. How do I install them or is there a better way to make this work?


What drier was downloaded? The one for windows or the one for linux?
From this site Canon Support for PIXMA TR8520 | Canon U.S.A., Inc. I found this link


which give the rpms to install both the driver and canon scangear. There also is a link for downloading the source.

You might try configuring it with cups first (http://localhost:631) as it might be able to function as driverless. If that does not work then try the drivers.

Give the printer a proper fixed ip address (either by dhcp or manually) first before configuring it on your pc.

These days most printers supports cups driverless printing, also known as AirPrint, Mopria or IPP Everywhere. You should try that.
