This is how I have my HP set-up, saves having to have a PC running just 
to print from the laptop. All I lose are features such as "walk-up scan 
support" which is no big as the printer is beside my main PC.

Which "it"? The printer or the PC?

Was this over network or USB?

Dumb question, have you got the Canon drivers installed?
There appears to be two: IJ for the printy bits, MP for the scanny bits.

And once more from Captain Obvious, do the GNU/Linux docs help?

There's a bit in the printer (IJ) driver installation steps where you 
select USB or network. I wonder if it's a case of one or the other and 
not both?

I found a German video, if that's of any use: 

If you're near Beeston, it might be possible for me to pop round and 
give you a hand. Or, at least, assist you in swearing at it. :-)
