Printing to Canon Printers Using Mac OS X Lion


At this time, many Canon printers at the University do not have a Mac OS X Lion-compatible print driver.


Using your current driver (intended for Snow Leopard) can cause a dangerous error that will fill up your computer's hard drive and crash the machine.  If you have already upgraded to Lion and would like to print to a Canon printer, please follow these steps:

  • Check to see if your printer is compatible with Lion here.  

  • If your printer is compatible, please download the appropriate driver here.  Please note that Lion is Mac OSX v10.7.  
  • Products not listed may not be supported by Mac OS X Lion, or may be supported in the future. Canon will continue to post up-to-date information regarding software and drivers on the page linked above.  
  • If you are still unable to print to your Canon printer, please visit one of our many computer labs to utilize our available printers.
  • If you have not yet upgraded to Lion and would like assistance, please don't hesitate to contact IT Solutions or visit us at one of our Service Centers.
