1. Go tp

   https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/products/fax__multifunctionals/inkjet/pixma_mg_series/pixma_mg3051.aspx?type=drivers&language=&os=LINUX

   and download the IJ Printer Driver (debian Packagearchive) tarball.

2. Extract the i386 .deb from the tarball and install it with 'dpkg -i'.

3. Use the CUPS web interface at localhost:631 to install the printer.
   You want the canonmg3000.ppd.
