Setting Up Canon G3111 on Mac OS Mojave

Today I was setting up the home printer on the Mac OS Mojave machine, and, although there is a driver download page from canon, there is no download button, or at least I  couldn’t find one. The printer doesn’t seem to support AirPrint, and none of the other options in the printer settings seemed to work. The solution: find a driver.

A quick search got me to this page where I selected the CUPS driver for Mac OS, and went through the set up process. After that was done, I went to system preferences > Printers & Scanners, and clicked the plus button. The printer was listed in the Default section, and I selected it as I had been doing previously, and again, no driver was auto-selected for it. I selected the “Select software” option in the section labeled “Use”, and this time, there was a G300 driver option on the list that appeared. That option wasn’t there previously. I selected that, and Clicked Add to add the printer. The printer is now set up and working.
