I9100 driver

I have an i9100 connected to a Mac running OSX 10.14.1  Neither Canon nor Apple have updated the drivers for this printer in quite some time.  When I try to print from elements or iphoto or easy  image print the colors are all wrong.  I have tried to set color managment so that elements controls the printing but to do so you must turn off color management in the printer.  The last updated Canon driver does not let you do this.  Is there any way to rectify this.  I hate to trash a perfectly good printer.

Hi coopejam22,

 

The 10.51.2.0 version of the driver may or may not function in the Mojavev10.14 environment. If it does work, there may be some limitations which are unknown to Canon.

This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service or are incompatible with a new or upgraded system.

I can’t speak directly to your printer, but generally the macOS will turn off color management automatically. If you go to the driver you should see the option grayed out and ColorSync will have a black dot.

thx for your note.  The driver I am using is 10.51.2.0 and it shows nothing about Colorsync at all.  When you check the preferences default is simple indicates that Canon color matching is being used and gives no opportunity to change that.

 

Are there any universal drivers that might work, not necessarily from Canon?  thx

I hear you, but for $110 you can get a brand new Pixma PRO-100 with $44 worth of paper and a complete set of ink. Net cost of printer ($66 - less than the cost of a complete set of ink for your current printer). Check out B&H Photo (and probably others)
