[Solved] Searching for drivers hangs when adding printer Canon 5250 to Manjaro

[Solved] Searching for drivers hangs when adding printer:

I had problems when trying to add my Canon 5250 to the 0.8.12 Manjaro release.

The system would lock up on searching for printers.

Followed this proceedure, with a slight modification:

sudo systemctl stop org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo pacman -Rsn manjaro-printer

sudo pacman -S cups cups-pdf cups-pk-helper system-config-printer

Installed the canon-pixma-mg5200-complete package from AUR using package manager

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service

sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service

When I installed the AUR package, the computer rebooted (?) but I just carried on and it all worked

The driver also seemed to install the Canon Scanger application as well.
