PIXMA MX922 PPD file

Hi, I'm using a Chromebook with the PIXMA MX922. I used to be able to print using Google Cloud Print, but Google has depreciated that service. Google Support has said that to try to manually connect to this printer, I need the printer's PPD file. I can't find this file listed under any of the printer drivers or downloads. Anyone know how to get a hold of this file?

In case anyone is finding this thread looking for help, there's another one on the Canon forums where a user posted a solution. Someone on reddit created a PPD file for the printer, and it worked for me. Search for "Canon MX922 PPD" on r/chromeos and follow their instructions.
