MP520 and Catalina




I have a MP520 printer.  Just got a new Mac laptop with Catalina (OS X 10.15).  Tried to add printer, it does recoginze the MP520 but then asks for software.  There is a short list of software from Espon, etc... nothing from Canon.  Apparently Canon hasn't provided drivers for this printer since OS X 10.12, so nothing to download.


Any idea how to get this printer to print with my new laptop?

This option allows you a one-time opportunity to purchase a replacement product, discounted from the list price.
