Updating Canon Pro 9000 Mark II to run on Catalina

Hi!  I would like to know if there are updated drivers for the Canon Pro 9000 Mark II to run on the Mac OS Catalina?  If not, can  we be expecting one soon?

Re: Updating Canon Pro 9000 Mark II to run on Catalina

Unfortunately the answer is No to both your questions.

 

If you are in the US you could call Canon and ask about their loyalty program that provides a discount for new device to the owners of deviices that are no longer supported.

 

I don't know what the special pricing is. The Pro-100 frequenty goes on a special rebate sale where the printer nets out at around $120 or so.

 

There is a poster on the forum who claims that the Apple driver will allow the Pro-9000 to operate with Catalina with all the printer features, but when asked to post a screen shot that shows that there was no followup.

Actually, I found out late last night that you can run it directly through the Mac using Preferences and then Printers. All utilities are there when you attach the USB. I wasn't aware of this but I tested it and all utilities seem to function and it seems that access through Luminar is there.

Just read your entire response. I'll be happy to post a screenshot as soon as I can get back to my computer. But as long as you're attached with USB then go to Preferences and then Printers, you'll see it

Greetings,

No drivers for this printer since High Sierra 10.13.

 

Since drivers were not released for Mojave, I doubt you are going to see Catalina drivers for this device. 

 

 

*Edit, if there is native support, then you lucked out.

That would be great and would help others. Are you sure its not the AirPrint/Bonjour driver?

 

Can you also post screenshot of the Media selection part where it shows the Canon papers and associated ICC paper profiles?

I don't see a link or a way to post a photo or screen shot. But, just hook up your Canon Pro 9000 Mark II, or whichever model you have, turn it on, go to Preferences/Printers and your printer will be there, along with all the utilities. If you can tell me how to post a photo/screenshot, let me know
