how to install printer driver for Canon PIXMA TR4522 printer in Arch Linux
I just bought a Canon PIXMA TR4522 printer. I have used printers before in Arch Linux, but I can't figure out how to print with this one. More specifically, I am having trouble finding the correct driver.

I have installed the `gutenprint` and `foomatic-db-gutenprint-ppds` Arch Linux packages, but I still don't see the printer PPD file when I run `$ lpinfo -m`. I've also looked at the [CUPS/Printer-specific problems](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/CUPS/Printer-specific_problems) page on the Arch Wiki, but I don't see my printer model or series listed on that page. I've also searched the web, and can't seem to find any Arch-related information about my printer model or series.

**How do I install the correct drivers and print with this printer?**
