I can no longer print.

On iMac 2020 Big Sur 11.5.2 when I instruct it to print from Pages (or any other application) to Canon Pixma MX 395 I get a Printer window: [Pages symbol] Print “Error while printing OK”. Behind this Error window is another window: “Print Preparing…[horizontal bar, darker section sliding to & fro ‘cancel’”. When OK pressed in the ‘Error’ window, both windows disappear.

I’ve downloaded and reinstalled the Canon Printer Driver, although the only one available for Big Sur is Pixma MX 390 series. The only Pixma MX 395 driver is for Catalina. “Your operating system macOS 10.15 (Catalina) Operating system detected” That download is identical to the one for Big Sur.

This error only started after I’d been upgraded to 11.5.2.

Any idea what’s going on?

Did you install the 11.6 update that came out today? Any change? Updated printer drivers supplied by manufacturers to Apple are usually included in macOS updates.
