Please help! I have a Mac running OS Monterey, my printer Pixma MG2522. I have found and downloaded and installed the recommended printing driver many times. When I go to system preferences > printers and scanners. when I go to add it, it recognizes the printer but cant find the driver. When I go to find the driver the selection list is empty. What am I missing or what am I doing wrong?
