10.6: Install Canon printer drivers in Snow Leopard
Authored by: transeau on Aug 28, '09 07:51:02AM

Many Canon printers are already fully supported by 10.6. So hold off on installing 3rd Party drivers until you have trying to simply add the printer.

10.6: Install Canon printer drivers in Snow Leopard
Authored by: theysay on Aug 31, '09 05:46:34AM

I have the Canon IPG W8400, and it hasn't been supported in the OSX Drivers ever, that I have seen. It wasn't until just recently that I was able to get the printer working with OSX 10.5. I find the Canon support for this printer, which was over $7,000, sucks beyond belief.

10.6: Install Canon printer drivers in Snow Leopard
Authored by: Lucca on Mar 22, '11 02:21:01PM

Background:
I have an i560 Canon printer that worked well with my old Mac OS 9.2. I tried installing the drivers from the CD for a test run of using it with my iMac OS 10.6. The iMac and the printer "talked" -- one could hear the printer trying to print. But, there was no paper feed, no printing. I checked the paper, changed it, etc. Still no luck. I went on the Apple website and was directed to Canon's web site. From the Canon web site I downloaded a new driver purportedly OS 10.6 compatible. Now there is next to nothing happening when I try to print.

Question:
I wan tto uninstall both drivers and any associated "files". I use both a Mac and a PC. On my PC it would be no problem, but on the iMac OS 10.6 I can not find a way to uninstall. How does one identify the correct files, drivers, etc? How does one uninstall them?

Thank you,

Lucca
