How to Download Software for Canon Pixma iP100 on Mac OS Ventura 13.0?



I got a new 2022 MacBook Pro and I'm running Mac OS Ventura 13.0. I was using my Canon Pixma iP100 with my old MacBook Pro without problems. With my new computer I can't download the software for Pixma iP100. Because the iP100 is 10 years old, Canon no longer supports this product. It's disappointing. There's nothing wrong with the printer (It's not broken.) except I can't download the software. All the links that were suggested here by "experts" do not work. Does anyone have a workaround on how I can get the iP100 working on Ventura 13.0? I would appreciate it. Thank you.



The last Canon driver for that printer was for macOS 10.14 (Mojave).

It might work with Apple AirPrint. Try adding the printer in System Settings Printers & Scanners.

This was helpful. Thanks. I tried to install the printer driver and got an error message. But after a couple of failed tries, I followed the suggestion and was able to add my ip100 in the Systems Settings. Something mysterious is going on.

I just recently found that if I choose Print from the File menu in Safari, and in Preview, instead of hitting command-P, then I can print successfully. But hitting command-P still causes these apps to crash.


I have this problem, too. Only Safari and Preview (Apple software) crash when trying to print on Canon iP100 Pixma (an old printer no longer supported by Canon on OS Ventura). If you open a pdf in Google Chrome, you can use the print dialogue there to print successfully. In that dialogue you can optionally choose "Print using system dialogue"; which seems to work better.


See my reply to P Morgan. I haven't updated my driver on my new Mac (1 year old), but have found a (so far) work-around.
