  1. I have a Canon Pixma MG3050 that does not work anymore. I downloaded the driver “Canon PIXMA MG3050 Driver for Linux” (the printer is attached to a machine running Xubuntu 20.04.1). Then I tried to install the driver bij double clicking on the downloaded file. It opens an archive manager. When I extract the file I get a massive directory with files but no installer. There is no make procedure, th epackage does not contain a .deb either. Your site is a useless waste of time frankly.
