Question about Canon imageRUNNER 5020i Copier

1 Answer

Installable options Adding IR 5020 to a MAC OS-X. The printer adds in OK after downloading drivers from Canon, and it prints a test document. The problems is the installable options cannot be acccessed from the workstation. I am fairly certain I downloaded everything necessary from Canon. Am I missing something?

Trouble getting printer to print for first time after downloading the driver from the internet. Mac OS 10.4


Try to delete the Lexmark Z715 print object from the Print and Fax on your Mac 10.4. Then, add a new Lexmark print object. After successfully adding a print job, try to print a document again to verify that printing is working properly now.

Can you do macs? how do i print duplex with this printer, duplex is suported by my mac


The Canon-supplied MP530 driver doesn't have duplex printing as a print option. Mac OS 10.5 has Gutenprint drivers built-in for a number of popular printers, including the Canon MP500 which is a near match for the MP530 and includes the two-sided option for printing.

With the MP530 plugged into your Mac (or, presumably, available over the network) go to the Add Printer wizard ( System Preferences > Print & Fax > + ). Pick MP530, name the printer something like "MP530 Gutenprint" and under "Print Using:" choose "Select a driver to use...", select "Canon PIXMA MP500 - Gutenprint v5.1.3" and then Add the printer.

The MP500 Gutenprint driver isn't a perfect substitute for the MP530 one, however, so you should do this in addition to installing the proper MP530 driver from the Canon website and adding the printer using that driver with a name like just "MP530" or "MP530 Canon". In a year or two of using the Gutenprint driver I've only once had a print job that wouldn't render correctly (some missing lines on the printout), and for that one time I had to switch to the Canon-supplied driver to get it to work. All the other times I find it very convenient to have two-sided printing available as an option.

The two sided printing isn't particularly fast, but it's a whole lot more convenient than manually printing the odd pages and then the even pages.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Make sure that these is how the installation went through(provided that the installer is already downloaded to your computer:
  1. Double-click the file to mount the Disk Image.
  2. Double-click the mounted Disk Image.
  3. Double-click the .pkg file in the folder. Installation starts automatically.

Moving forward when adding a printer and the Ok button is grayed-out is that there are no other pop-out window or tick box that hasn't been ticked yet.

Canon imagePROGRAF W7250


I did not see that there was a response on Apple's support site that adds to the previous post I mentioned. Combing the steps from the two posts, I was able to get our W7250 to print from Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

Here are the steps I took to get a networked Canon imagePROGRAF 7250 to work with a Mac running Leopard :

1. Download garo34 print driver from Canon's support site here.
2. Download the iPF610/iP710 Leopard print driver from Canon here.
3. Double-click on the garo34_osx.hqx file that you downloaded.
4. A folder named Driver is created; open it and double click on "GARO Installer for X".
5. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
6. When the GARO Installer for X window appears, click on Continue.
7. Click Continue.
8. Click Continue.
9. Click Agree.
10. Click Install.
11. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
12. When your system has restarted, double-click on the iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10.hqx file you downloaded.
13. A folder named iPF610_710_Driver_OSX_10.5_Ver1.10 is created; open it and double-click on "iPF Driver Installer X".
14. Enter a name and password of an administrator account on your Mac and click OK.
15. When the iPF Installer X window appears, click on Continue.
16. Click Agree.
17. Click Install.
18. When the installation is complete, click on the Restart button.
19. When your system has restarted, click on the System Preferences icon on your Dock or select System Preferences from the Apple pull-down menu.
20. When the System Preferences window appears, click on the Print & Fax icon.
21. Click on the + Button underneath the Printers column.
22. Another window will appear; click on the "More Printers" icon.
23. A drop-down window appears; select Canon IP (GARO) from the pull-down menu if not already selected.
24. In the "Printer's Address:" field, enter the IP address of your Canon W7250 printer (e.g. 192.168.1.2).
25.In the "Queue Name:" field, enter a name for your printer (e.g. W7250).
26. Click on Add.
27. The W7250 is now your default printer. If you want another printer to be the default, change it in the Print & Fax preference pane.

Voila!

I hope this solves your problem and you found the instructions helful.

Cannot print from Apple MacBook to Canon MX310


First, check your USB printer connection to your Macbook from your Pixma MX310 printer.

If the USB cable is securely seated, make sure you have installed the updated drivers for your version of Mac OS X. Here is the Link:
Canon Pixma MX 310 Drivers for Mac OS X (v10.6/10.5 and earlier).

If you have already updated your printer drivers to the most current Canon Pixma update for your version of Mac OS X, then click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences.

• From System Preferences, select Print & Fax.
• Within the Print tab, make sure you can see your Canon listed in that window.

If you can, proceed to perform a test print on any document you have on your desktop or folder of choice. If this does not help, from within the Print tab, select the Canon and press the "-" Minus button and remove that printer.
• Once it is removed, now click the "+" button
and re-add your printer.
• Once it has been added, attempt to test print again.

This should help get your printer back to printing again.

I need to install HP deskjet 6940 on my Powerbook G4. I am operating on MAX OSX 10.4.6


If your printer does not appear in the Printer pop-up menu, find and install the appropriate driver. Check any CD-ROM discs included with the printer, or the website of your printer's manufacturer. Only users with an administrator account can install software.

Tip: You can also open the Printer List window from Printer Center (Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier) or the Printer Setup Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, or later).

Check the Printer menu again after installing the software. If the printer does not appear, you may need to do this:
  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your computer, plugged in, and turned on.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier, from the Printer menu in the print dialog choose Edit Printer List. The Printer List window appears.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.3 or later, choose Show Printer List from the View menu. The Printer List window appears.
  4. Click the Add Printer button.
  5. Choose USB from the first pop-up menu.
  6. Select your printer from the list.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Close the Printer List window.

How to add a network printer (AppleTalk or LPR)

Adding an AppleTalk or LPR network printer is very similar to adding a USB printer. In Step 4 above, you would choose AppleTalk or "LPR Printers using IP" from the pop-up menu. From there, the setup differs slightly.

AppleTalk printer
  • AppleTalk must be enabled in Network preferences.
  • If your network uses AppleTalk zones, choose one from a second pop-up menu that appears.
  • Make sure to avoid potential issues with AppleTalk multi-homing.

LPR printer
  • You must enter the printer's IP address or DNS name.
  • If you're printing to a queue, deselect the checkbox for "Use Default Queue on Server", then type the queue's name. If not, leave the checkbox selected.
  • You can select your printer from the Printer Model menu or leave it at Generic. In essence, are selecting a PPD file.

Question mark appears, or trouble finding a printer?

If you can't find the printer you want to add in the list of connection methods, make sure you're choosing the right connection type for your printer. Some printers may use custom input-output modules, such as "Epson AppleTalk". You may need to select one of these custom options in order to add your printer. If there's a question mark on the printer's icon, or Print Center or Print Setup Utility lists it as unsupported, check for an updated software version at the manufacturer's website, or the Mac OS X downloads page.

Tip for software installation

Your printer may appear in the printer list before manufacturer-required software is installed. If you have such a printer, remove the printer from your printer list before installing the software. Add the printer back to the list after you've installed the software.

Printers whose drivers or PPDs are included with Mac OS X
Additional Information See these articles for lists of printer drivers and PPD files included with Mac OS X:

25587: Mac OS X 10.3: Included PPDs for PostScript Printers
