please go here UFR II/UFRII LT Printer Driver for Linux | Canon and click to download and SAVE what will be linux-UFRII-drv-v340-uken.tar.gz (released July 2017).

  1. open a terminal
  2. copy the commands below; line by line; each separate; paste into the terminal; hit the ENTER key after each paste

(to open a terminal, press three keys control, alt and t) (to paste into a terminal, right-click at the flashing prompt in the terminal, and select PASTE from the menu ..)

cd Downloads
tar -zxvf  linux-UFRII-drv-v340-uken.tar.gz
cd  linux-UFRII-drv-v340-uken
sudo ./install.sh

(that last command starts the install script, that should do all the work; watch it; it will ask you some questions.. but it all should work)
