    I found the solution and I am going to share it with you.

    1) Canon did create drivers for the i series printers, but in Japan! Here they are. In Japan my i560 is called a Pixus560i. ftp://download.canon.jp/pub/driver/bj/linux/

    For the i560 you need to download 2 files (I use Mandrake 10.1 but the source tar.gz are there too)

    bjfiltercups-2.4-0.i386.rpm

    bjfilterpixusXXXi-2.4-0.i386.rpm


    Install bjfiltercups-2.4-0.i386.rpm

    Then bjfilterpixusXXXi-2.4-0.i386.rpm. It might have a dependancy issue for libpng.so.2. If so look here http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3 for your Distro package of the libpng2 package. I installed libpng2-1.0.12-2.2mdk.i586.rpm.

    After that bjfilterpixusXXXi-2.4-0.i386.rpm installed without a problem.

    2) Reboot your system

    3) go in your printer manager and look for your driver under Canon. It is called "Multipass Pixus XXXi"
