For Pixma MP258, don't add your printer in system settings, and also no need to download/install additional packages for the printer to work (including cups-devel). Instead, head over to cups admin page: localhost:631
Then add your printer from there. It will auto select the driver (Canon MP250 series .....), and budgie will notify that a printer has been added. Now when you go to system settings, your printer will appear there too. You may make changes to the printer settings from there also. It is just that adding the printer needs to be made from CUPS web interface.
If you add the printer from system settings, it can be added but somehow it is not added in CUPS, thus printing will not work.
