Uncompress the deb files, and run with sudo the instal.sh script for each the scanner and printer .deb folders created for you.

The alternative way indicated elsewhere to set up canon pixma printers, doesn't work for this printer, since MG3051 doesn't use scangearmp but scangearmp2 (note the number 2 at the end).

In order to print, you can then add the printer in the Printers control menu in your Ubuntu Desktop environment.

1.2.4. Scan

Most GUI programs in GNU/Linux are setup to run scangearmp (the previous version, note that it misses then number 2 at the end), therefore, programs such as xsane, gimp, simple-scanner, etc. will not find the scanner in the scanners list, since they use scangearmp in the backend.
