Hi,It is an imageClass printer by the looks of it.The USB code does not seem to be listed in the source so probably not a supported printer.The relevant code is in the SANE backends here:

See the list of #defines at the top.If you're feeling adventurous, you could add the printer to the source and see if it works.It looks very similar to the MF244 so you could use that as a template.

At the top, add: 
#define MF269_PID  0x27f4 

and towards the bottom, add:DEV ("Canon i-SENSYS MF269 Series", "MF269", MF269_PID, 600, 300, 634, 1050, PIXMA_CAP_ADF),               /* max. w = 215mm, */
...and build it and test it. Better to start with USB rather than network.

Failing that, perhaps Rolf could add it tentatively for his PPA.He is usually pretty responsive.

 Subject: [sane-devel] Canon ImageClass MF269dw
I was able to use a Canon ImageClass MF260-series with vanilla Ubuntu 
18.04 recently, I'm pretty sure it was the MF264dw.

I ordered one for myself, but failed to notice that I was getting the 
MF269dw instead of the 264.

SANE-powered apps don't seem to be able to detect the scanner, though 
the printer works fine.

$ sudo sane-find-scanner

   # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
   # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
   # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

   # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make 
sure that
   # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

   # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be 
supported by
   # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

   # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

   # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
   # can't be detected by this program.

I also tried using the network connection. I looked at the pixma.conf as 
the best bet for the driver, but noticed that the printer is not 
listening on port 8612.

$ nmap
