Your printer is not supported by Canon on the Mac. However, there is an available CUPS driver for it. You may download it here.
I purchased that today, although the clerk knew that I use a mac he gave me no warning. in an older threat I read that it works with a file named cncupslbp2900captk.ppd.
But I cannot find it. can anybody help, please?
I am not a computer expert, so I understand only half of that description on the linuxprinting page.
I am so fed up with that shit, I think I'll bring it back today. I thought this kind of problems were long gone.
As an alternative I found the Samsung ML-2250 (at least they offer drivers for macs on their website). Any experiences or alternatives in that price range?
website are for Windows and Linux.
