I tried to get old printer from Windows to work with Mac, but it lacked drivers. I downloaded Gutenprint, tested it, got it print one page, then printer got weird - the on/off button refused to be shut off and to get unresponsive printer to shut down, I had to unplug power cable.
After putting cable back, printer was fine again, but trying to print again, caused the same issue - power button burns, pushing it has no effect and only way to shut printer down was to remove the cable.
I removed Gutenprint and good riddance, I have another (though black and white) printer for Mac anyways.
But due to printer acting so weird, I am worried if it was legitimate software. I have habit of making screenshots and I have these left from that time - can someone please take a look and tell me if this looks like legitimate software
Site I used:
Then Canon printer said something about wrong or mistake made during installation and wanted to do changes.
I then downloaded uninstaller
As I installed it twice, I also removed it twice.
I just want to know if this looks like legitimate software and it did not leave behind anything bad or cause damage?
I hope it was just my printer not accepting what is wide known software, but it worries me. At this point, I regret at all trying to get the old printer working and downloading this software.
Malwarebytes hasn't found anything so that's some consolation.
I compared the url of on those snapshots and they look like they belong to legitimate software site? I'm starting to doubt everything...
