Again, and again, and again,
each time I upgrade the operating system on my mac mini I have troubles with this laser printer.
The printer is fantastic but the software and the support is not….
Anyway for those who need to use this printer with Mac OS X Mavericks I'm going to describe how to do. If you have a previous version of Mac OS X take a look at Canon LBP-2900 on Mac OS X Mountain Lion or at Using the Canon LBP2900 with Snow Leopard
Canon has released a new version of the CAPT driver for Mac OS X, so now the printer works with Mavericks using the new CAPT v3.65 driver available here: http://support-au.canon.com.au/contents/AU/EN/0100420705.html and the old Mountain Lion patch which is available here:
Install the new CAPT driver and restart your computer.
Install the patch and restart your computer.
Go to System Settings / Printers and Scanners and reinstall your printer selecting Cannon LBP2900 (CAPTuk) driver from the drivers list
Now the LBP2900 should work fine.
