Solved Any XP Pro or Linux drivers for Canon Pixma TS9020?

Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3, Intel Core-2, 8GB RAM
I got fooled into buying this inkjet printer by a couple sites that said they had drivers, but it turned out to be bogus. Now I'm wondering if I will have to give this printer to the recyclers, and eat the $70 loss. I would rather not, so if there is any hope of getting it to work, let me know.

✔ Best Answer
The Canon website of course, that's the correct source for drivers for Canon equipment, it baffles me why you apparently didn't know that.

For the TS series, every OS from Linux through to Win10 is supported.

Go here & click on "Drivers and Downloads":

Don't forget to select the appropriate OS from the drop-down list.

Already done that (how do you think I figured out the other two sites were bogus?), but I clicked on your link anyway. Here's what I saw:
MAIN UNIT SPECS > OS Compatibility: no mention of XP
DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS > Windows XP Detected: "There is no driver for the OS"
"Driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver"
Okay, so that brings us back to my question "is there any hope of getting it to work".

You also asked for Linux Drivers!

There are Linux drivers at the link provided by phil22 both 32 & 64 bit

XP is a very old, obsolete, unsupported operating system. Mo manufacturers of new equipment will be producing drivers for it. Your best bet is to buy equipment of a similar age to the OS, and stop trying to put new wine into very old bottles.
