10.6: Install Canon printer drivers in Snow Leopard
Authored by: salvodan on Aug 28, '09 03:20:08PM

Anyone have any luck getting BJNP working in Snow Leopard?
I have an MX700 and while the scanner component of the driver works great over the network, the printer component only works when you connect via USB.

I have a MX850, and could not get the "Add Printer" dialog to locate my printer on the network.

The workaround was to install the slightly older CUPS driver available directly form Canon. See link above. Something is broken with the newest drivers as distributed by Apple.

I was unable to scan from my MX700 after upgrading to SnowLeopard. The drivers provided by Apple do not work.

The first reply in your string recommends installing a slightly older driver. I did so (mx700soxsns10ea7-3.dmg from Canon's website) and now the scanner works.

Annoying to have to spend so much time tweaking the system though.
