As a last resort I read the guide that comes in the driver bundle from Canon.  
Had to then uninstall everything and make changes to SELinux and the Firewall 
before reinstalling.  Unbelievable.  It searched and found my wireless MX350 and 
set it up in Cups.  It prints photos and text and mixed content as it should.  
It also scans but as per the guide the only app that sees the scanner is GIMP.

Sure don't understand why Canon doesn't have the linux stuff on their US web-
site.  At least I couldn't find it.  Of course my wife says I can't see things 
any more unless they are moving.  After 49 years I guess she knows me pretty 

This may not be of any help resolving your problem but thought I would let you 
know how my situation turned out.
