Mac OS doesn't always support all printers either; and some Canon are amongst those not supported.

I think the workaround that often works (at least over a network) is to locate the printer (its ip address needs to be known of course) and configure it that way - as a generic printer - albeit with limited functionality.

Mac being an off-shoot of Unix, and Linux variants being in effect similar…, that approach may work?
