Did you check on the manufacturers Homepage if there is a driver provided for Linux?
According to the openprinting.org-Website, the Linux support for the whole PIXMA MG series is paperweight, and your particular model is not listed at all, which hints at no Linux support for it. Blame the manufacturer...


Currently running Kubuntu 20.10, Plasma 5.19.5, Frameworks 5.74.0, Qt 5.14.2, kernel 5.8.0-29, AMD RENOiR Graphics
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions, makes it easier for us to help ...
