10.6: Install Canon printer drivers in Snow Leopard
Authored by: danieldev on Oct 23, '09 02:28:53AM

Just to add to this bit of information, I want to report that after installing Snow Leopard, I was not able to print on a wireless network with the recently released Canon drivers. Using Canon IJ Network utility version 2.6 or 2.7 there was no way to see the MP600R in the setup pane, and neither in the Apple Printer system preferences pane. Everything else worked (scan on wifi, including configuring the printer over wifi with Canon Network utility version 2.6 - 2.7 was not able to do this).

At the end the solution was to DELETE everything related to Canon on my Hard Disk and reinstall the old drivers that came on the CD (for system 10.4). This installs version 2.2 of Canon IJ Network Utility. The printer still does not appear in the setup pane (but appears in the 'utility' pane for wireless configuration) BUT there is now a 'More printers' button in the Apple printer system preferences pane when I add a printer and I can now setup the printer for wireless printing. Scanning over wifi still works, and I can also do TWAIN access over wifi inside Graphic Converter.

Shame on Canon for bad integration of their network protocol in Mac OS X. I have lost various hours on this.
