Hello Apple Community,

 

Can you help me to print from a new Mac to an old Canon printer?

 

I'm here in Vietnam (first time in Asia) as a teacher. I have the latest model MBP (running Mac OS X 10.8.4). There's an old Canon that I'm trying to print to. I've Google'd the model number but nothing comes up for Mac. There are sites in the Google search that say they have the software. I'm worried they might be malware sites.

 

On the back of the printer it says L11121E. But when I connect it (via USB) and open Print & Scan it detects it as a Canon LBP2900.

 

I looked here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4670 and here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4670.

 

But neither of those links list the Canon L11121E or LBP2900.

 

When I Google'd "L11121E mac driver" this link came up:

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL899

 

Do you think that would work?

 

I checked for updates from the App Store (and System Preferences Print & Scan) with the USB cable of the printer plugged in. Nothing came back.

 

I'm a teacher trying to print material for my students. Any help at all would be appreciated.

 

 

 

Confused,

.Sean
