Drivers For Canon PIXMA TR4520

Forgive the Manjaro newbie question but how do I get and setup drivers for the Canon PIXMA TR4520 printer? I tried the recommended drivers and some Canon drivers at System Settings > Printers with no luck. I don’t know where to go from here.

Activate AUR Support in Pamac Settings
Search and install


PS: first install base-devel

That package doesn’t mention that series or model. However, the source file seems to be the same as the cnijfilter2 package, so either might work even though they’re both a newer version.

Canon’s website lists The IJ Printer Driver Ver. 5.70.

❯ pamac info cnijfilter2 | grep Description
Description           : Canon IJ Printer Driver for Linux

THANKS! IT WORKED! Here are the steps I took:

installed base-devel


pamac update -a
pamac search -a canon-pixma-ts5055-complete
pamac build canon-pixma-ts5055-complete

And as per build instructions, I ran these commands in a terminal:

sudo lpadmin -p TS5055 -m canonts5000.ppd -v <printer-address> -E

[I didn’t know what to use for <printer-address> in the above command]

But, I went to System Settings > Printer and found the following driver now present and chose it:

Canon TR4500 series ver.5.70
