    ^ they have windows and mac drivers. Have you checked if it's drivers are already on the list in the printer setup wizard? If the drivers aren't there, you might be able to pick a similar model and still have it work. I dd it that way with a Lexmark Z22.
    Hope that helps!

    sry, i should have been more clear. I didn't mean that you should use the lexmark drivers, i just meant that as an example. Thats how I did it with a fairly old lexmark model...

    i have not been able to find anything that works...no one seems to have had any luck...i did try your suggestion on using other printer drivers but none worked...i emailed turboprint which has drivers for the pixma ip2000 and up asking if they would come out with drivers for the ip1500...i just got a response from them

    Dear Sir,

    a driver for the Canon PIXMA iP1500 is planned - we will inform you as soon
    as the driver is available.

    Best regards
    Florian Zeiler

    I'll let you know as soon as i find out
