To admit the truth though, I didn't have much idea what I was doing with the included printer setuper.

< http://linux.cergynux.net/canon/ >
and then install it by typing this in a terminal window:
dpkg -i name_of_file.deb
(enter a new password for user "root")
then open a web browser and visit this page:
< http://localhost:631 >
to do your printer setup.

Also, when I go to install the .DEB, I type in what you said:
dpkg -i bjfilter-pixmaip1500_2.50-3_i386.deb
And then I get
dpkg: /var/lib/dpkg/status: No such file or directory
