Download cups-bjnp here:

Open a terminal, and type:

tar zxf cups-bjnp-1.1.tar.gz
cd cups-bjnp-1.1/
./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

For ubuntu 12.10 64bit: At the ./configure step, if you get an error "configure: error: CUPS library not found" step then run:

sudo apt-get install libcups2 libcups2-dev

and then continue with the ./configure step.

Now go the System / Administration / Print menu, go to Network, and select your printer. Follow the instructions, select Canon PIXMA iP5300 as the driver, and you are done.
