Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I tried installing my Canon Pixma MP 190 printer to my Apple Powerbook OSX 3.9 and the softwarre was unable to install it said the were installation errors, I tried using the CD and by downloading the software from the Canon software website. I think maybe the problem arose when I thought I had already installed the software and then forgot that the usb was still plugged into the laptop while inserting the software CD.

    Hello, I followed your instructions and searched to find all elements of canon software, even though it actually never installed from the disc but I had downloaded the drives etc from the Canon website. However although the software cd appears in FInder and it asks for the administrator password that is as far as it works. If I manually open the file and double click it start to isntall then during the installation period it stops and says "There were errors installing the software, please try installing again". The same thing happened - same error message - after I downloaded the softwarre from the website. But yes thie printer works very well on our other pc laptop and Apple ibook. I wonder if there is something else I need to delete? Please let me know what further info I send supply to help get this sorted.

    Hello, I followed your instructions and deleted everything that I could find related with Canon printers, however the problem still exists and when trying to install the CD although is recognised but it doesn't run I try to manually double click to start the process then the software installation says it has encountered errors and could not be installed. The printer is working very well with my ibook OS 4 (tiger) and pc laptop. My powerbook runs on OS 3.9 (panther).

    I was able to install another canon printer a couple of months ago, but this is my new personal printer.

    According to the information on the Canon printer info and technical specs on the link supplied it is compatible for Apple OS 10.3.9, (panther) apologies if I confused the siutation by only stating the 3.9. I have followed guidance instrcutions as given but the same problam of errors occurring during intallation are still happening. The printer was successfully in stalled on my apple ibook 10.4 (tiger) and a pc laptop.

    Following on from my original message I would like to clarify that according to the information on the Canon printer info and technical specs on the link supplied it is compatible for Apple OS 10.3.9, (panther) apologies if I confused the siutation by only stating the 3.9. I have followed guidance instrcutions as given but the same problam of errors occurring during intallation are still happening after i deleted everything I could find related to Canon printer - I had previously installed another Canon printer successfuly. My current printer was successfully in stalled on my apple ibook 10.4 (tiger) and a pc laptop.

Please disconnect the device, uninstall the device drivers and then after a reboot reinstall the drivers from the CD or the net. Then reconnect the device and start using the device.

Ok, well what you need to do is uninstall all the software, and drivers again reboot the PC, DO NOT plug in the device yet, reboot and re- install the software and drivers, and IF asked or at the end of the install and after a reboot, then and only then plug in the USB device.
Now it should be detected and installed, if it "Asks" for drivers, simply show it where those files are, and it will/should automatically do it After this you should be able to use your USB device.
Also see if your device actually works, try it on another PC, this MUST be done to make sure it is OK. As usual check all cables and connections too.

How to reset the master password for g4 mac powerbook ?


1. Obtain a Mac OSX install disc (buy one from apple or try Ebay) 2. Insert the disc then click on the "Install Mac OS" icon. Then click the restart button. 3. DONT INSTALL! Just click through enough of the windows to get to the regular set of choices on the menu bar. One of those choices is UTILITIES and one of the choices there is RESET PASSWORD.
Simple, but you should know that anyone with a Mac OSX install disc can gain access to your computer.

Error 300


OSX support for Powerbooks is VERY sloppy. Try installing the iP90 in "Classic" (OS9.2.2) instead. 922 has built-in drivers for every port on Powerbooks. OSX can't even load a SCSI card on laptops. Or iRda, or any USB above 1.1 etc.... very shabby. Apple was sued for "abandoning" Powerbook support with OSX and LOST a BIG class action. Alternatively, partition your HD with TWO operating systems, and load 9.2.2 as a boot option (with OSX as the other). OSX is "emulating" 922, but this method allows OS922 to "run itself". It is MUCH faster (boots in 10 seconds, compared to MINUTES for OSX) and your iP90 will work on USB or irDa -both! 922 will only need a 700mb partition at least... OSX needs 4gb or more (to accomplish far less, far slower)
