Now you'll see this warning message: lpadmin: Printer drivers are deprecated and will stop working in a future version of CUPS.

Not sure what this will mean for the future with this driver.

Re: driver deprecation - the CUPS creator opened this issue to discuss how to handle old devices: https://github.com/apple/cups/issues/5271

From one of his comments: "Before we drop PPDs, we will be working with developers to create those printer applications (particularly Gutenprint), and will likely end up creating our own printer application (based on the existing ippserver sample code) to support existing PostScript and CUPS raster drivers. So the goal is definitely not to leave people SOL, but rather to plan for a future where we aren't limited by the capabilities of the past."

To avoid defective drivers and for correct package manager information, you can translate the original deb packets (cndrvcups-capt_2.71-1_amd64.deb and cndrvcups-common_3.21-1_amd64.deb from CANON https://support-sg.canon-asia.com/contents/SG/EN/0100459601.html) using the debtap program (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/debtap/). Obtain the .pkg.tar.xz arch installation packages. .PKGINFO files can be edited easily before generating .pkg.tar.xz packages. Everything goes perfectly.
