I would like to ask which driver/file ( deb or rpm ) I should download for printing and how to install it on Crunchbang?

Canon PIXMA MG2450

First I tried to try out System > Printers> Install printing support but even though it seems as if it is installing at the beginning, It stops proceeding and says :

There was a problem installing printing packets.

And then I check out Canon's official website for drivers but but this time I am confused which driver I should download and how to install it.

And after I've read a few blogs about that I decided to try out the deriver which contains files with .deb because Crunchbang is based on debian.

I run this "codes"

cd downloads

cd printer

( I changed the original name of the folder I downloaded cos it was not convenient. )

bash install.sh

But even though the driver was installed, Crunchbang was failed to detect my printer.
