I am trying to setup a canon MF4412 printer on my Arch Linux desktop.

I followed the official guide in setting up a CUPS server/client as well as installing the cndrvcups-lb driver package.

However, my CUPS server is still unable to detect the printer. My best guess is there is a problem with the drivers. Are there any solutions available?

Install the gutenprint package and then try adding it through the CUPS administration interface (http://localhost:631/admin). This worked for me for another Canon printer.
