Disclaimer: The following instructions were provided to us from a student who managed to successfully add a printer to their computer running Linux.

(I'm currently running latest version of KDE Neon, over Ubuntu LTS 18.04)
1. Download drivers here and choose *
UFR II/UFRII LT Printer Driver for Linux V3.60
2. Open the terminal to the place you downloaded the file.
3. Unzip/untar the archive with
tar -xvf linux-UFRII-drv-v360-uken.tar.gz
4. Go to the extracted folder
5. Run the install script by typing
Note: sudo privileges might be required
Then, add the Print Queue:
1. Open the software (Search for "Canon", or "Print" in your applications list).
2. Follow the steps to add a printer with the LPD protocol.
3. For model, select "Canon iR C5250..."
4. For IP, type <Your-SUNetID>@vptlprinting.stanford.edu/SecurePrint, which might look something like
5. Follow the steps, and then you're done!
Your printer is now called "Canon iR C5250..." where "..." is just the rest of the long name.
Note: After I did this, I had to run
because I think the install script forced downgrade some of my packages.
Again, sudo priviledges might be required.
*Choosing this driver should work for most versions, but for other specific distros (eg. Ubuntu) most likely other versions (eg. .DEB) will do the trick.
