    I just reinstalled my operating system with the discs i was given when i bought my faithful macbook.
    now the printer which I've always used, and which was plug and play when I first used it won"t work.
    It recognizes the make and model (Canon iP2500) but the list of drivers in the printer set-up utility doesn't have mine on there. The list entirely consists of 'Gimp' drivers, and my printer isn't listed.
    I have looked for support on apple and also at canon, but no joy.
    Am i missing something simple?

    help much appreciated.
    Brian.
