Tips for posting

Use a "keyword search" to make sure your question has not already been asked. For example "failed to verify key" or "sound is muted".

Make sure you include enough detail so people know what you are running. A useful command is inxi -Fxz; copy and paste the text and format as "code" (e.g. use the </> button above).

If possible, paste text rather than upload a photo. Text is easier to read, searchable, and takes up less space on the server. Please don't upload high-resolution photos.

First of all, what desktop environment are you using, and do you have manjaro-printer installed?

Also, have you read this section of the Manjaro Wiki?

I have just installed it and it doesnt seem to detect it

Are you using Add Printer in Print Settings? I've got a Canon MG5750, and it detects it best on first installation just after I've switched the printer on and it has connected to the network. So, try the good old fashioned turning it off and on again.

PS I note that Canon do not supply Linux drivers for this particular model.
