Canon LBP series CAPT printer driver available
Authored by: dirtymouse on Oct 15, '09 02:28:11AM
just to update those people who find this thread on google.

The CAPT driver v1.7 available to download from

it continues to work with 10.6.x Snow leopard.

To uninstall v3.0

there is a v3.0 CAPT driver available in English that is floating around
BUT apparently doesn't work in 10.6. You need to uninstall this if
you've installed it previously. Run the install and select the uninstall
option on the 2nd screen.

You also need to trash any CAPT folder remaining in the Canon printer folder,
under Printers in your Library.

To install

Keep your USB printer turned ON during the installation.
The v1.7 installer is still in Japanese, but just press the default buttons.
Re-boot will occur when done, so have all other apps quit before hand.

The printer should magically appear in the printer list. if it doesn't,
quit the preferences, power cycle, re-plug the LBP3000 (or whatever)
and re-open the system preferences > print and fax. If that fails,
repeat but reboot before hand.

I'm still running 10.5.x on my main system, but i've tested it with 10.6
after an upgrade and works as expected.

I've just helped someone else thru this process recently too.

goodluck - dirtymouse

Canon LBP series CAPT printer driver available
Authored by: Cathy2008 on Oct 31, '09 11:16:39AM


Just installed snow leopard on my husbands mac after previously having tiger and running the mxcapt160 for the canon LBP-1120 fine.

When we upgraded it could see the printer but just kept sending out blank pages when we tried to print. Now installed the mxcapt170 and while it loads onto the 'print and fax' preferences fine, I keep getting the error message: System/Library/Printers/Libraries/PrintJobMgr/Contents/MacOS/PrintJobMgr failed when trying to print.

I've tried powercycling, rebooting and reinstalling, but nothing seems to help.

Would be really grateful for any pointers

I tried this and although installed correctly printer still doesn't work. The print job goes into the printer queue but remains stopped and message says 'operation could not be completed' client error not possible'. Please please help me I am spending hours on this and my children are getting annoyed with me. Thank you.
