@JoshStrobl I am packaging this in case it is accepted for inclusion, it'll be ready to go
Oct 22 2017
Have been trying to package this. I have made some progress, but am currently hanging up applying patches. Attaching the patches and package.yml in case someone more experienced would like to try to fix it.

@kyrios123 I received the same as above, using cups 2.2.3 on Solus Shannon, fully updated

I can say for certain that what we have on Solus currently does not yield a functioning printer. Solus will find the printer on the local network, and happily install it. But when attempting to print, nothing happens. In fact, the only version of this outside of the native one from Canon installed on something like Ubuntu, that worked, was through Portage. Specifically emerged onto a Sabayon install. The version's in Arch's AUR do not work either, whether installed onto Arch, Antergos, or Manjaro. Am eagerly awaiting input and am happy to test on anything needed to solve this.

Kyrios, just something to add that I noticed while digging through Canon's tarball. It looks like both canon-urfiilt-common and cndrvcups-lb may be required to yield a working printer. Essentially one contains the needed ppd's and a filter module while the other contains needed libraries. In addition looking at their install.sh in the main directory, we may be missing a couple libraries on Solus, specifically libbeecrypt. Taken from the install.sh in the main directory that lists required dependencies,,and the readme's contained within the source directory of Canon's tarball:

It also is worth mentioning that, although, in it's default state Solus automatically finds the printer, it is trying to add it with a generic driver (which does not work).
