Apple updates drivers, adds support for Lexmark and Canon printersLess than a month after it released drivers for Lexmark and Canon printers and all-in-ones, Apple on Tuesday rolled out two incremental updates for both, bringing OS X Mountain Lion compatibility and support for new products.
With the release, Lexmark's drivers have been bumped to version 2.10, with machines showing an 11.2 version number if correctly updated. The new drivers support a number of new products, the model numbers of which can be found here, and requires OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, or 10.8 Mountain Lion to operate.
The Lexmark driver package weighs in at 176.6MB and can be downloaded via Apple's Support Downloads Webpage or Software Update.
Canon's update reaches version 2.11 and covers printers and scanners attached to Macs running OS X 10.6.1 or later, Lion, or Mountain Lion. The new version adds a number of new models to the list of supported machines, which can be found here, but the drivers themselves have gone largely unchanged.
The Canon driver pack comes in at 342.52MB and can be downloaded via Apple's support pages or Software Update.
