The Canon i-sensys LBP 2900 is a fantastic laser printer, but Canon doesn't offer a strong support for Linux and Mac OS X.

In this article I'll show you how to use the Canon LBP 2900 with Mac OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard) on a Mac mini.

If you want to install the driver on a Linux box with Ubuntu you can see this article.

The procedure is very simple:

  • download this zip file  from
  • open the Library/Printers/Canon folder
  • Rename the CAPT folder,  if it exists, in CAPT_OLD
  • Move the downloaded folder here
  • Reboot your Mac
  • Install the latest drivers for the Canon devices from
  • Reboot your Mac
  • Now try to use your printer

Please let me know if this procedure works fine on your mac (OS version and Mac model)
