Hello MacXperts,

Is there a way to do this? I am using an old vers. Quark 3.32 installed on OS 9.2 on my Dual G3, but the only printer I have, a Canon MP500, is compatible only on my OS 10.3. Is there any way at all to do this? I need to open the Quark app. of course to print ,but the Chooser in OS 9 does not have the printer.
Thanks much. :)

Try GuttenPrint 5.0.0 (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15970) which has driver support for a large number of legacy printers.

You have to have a G4 (probably DA) if it has dual-cpus.

Are you sure Canon hasn't updated their MP500 driver (http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportSearchResultsAct&keyword=MP500&Submit.x=39&Submit.y=7)?

Since your Cannon isn't a postscript printer, anything you print from Quark is basically just a screen shot anyway. Your best bet IMO when using Quark is to print to file and distill a PDF and print that from Acrobat.

Yes. Thanks guys. Did not know that about the Canon printer. I will follow through on saving it to that format and printing a pdf.
Think the next printer I buy will not be a Canon ip 5000 (for the Classic 9.2), although it's print quality was quite good, it broke within a year and a half.
