Canon does not make a Mac driver for this printer.

You can go two routes -
easy - try setting up in Printer Setup using the HP LaserJet 5 Series, Gimp-Print driver already on your Mac. This is a generic HP PCL driver (the LBP series uses the PCL page description language).

Or, find and download the PPD file for CUPS, and also install the foomatic PPD interpreter and the ESP ghostscript universal driver from:

When you ADD in Printer Setup, choose model Other, then navigate to the downloaded PPD.
