Motorola Guys Making the Wafers. Circa late 1990's.
Or will I need some science people to deconstruct my printing paradigm and reimagine it?
Serious, the ole Canon Pixma 9000 was working all fine and dandy and then I upgraded and .... kapowy!!! Zapp! Slam#, Pow!!! it's no longer recognized. Do I give up and send the printer on it's way or do I persevere in the hopeless delusion that it's something simple that I just haven't figured out yet?
Guide me, oh brilliant readers! Shazammm!!!!
The problem was solved: Here is the solution offered by reader, Phil Lewis:
MAC Print Drivers
You have to remove the new apple drivers and use the older Canon drivers.
1.) Download the Snow Leopard 10.6 Canon drivers (newest on the Canon website).
2.) Reset the printer system. This removes most of the files in the /Library/Printers folder; however, there are still hidden files in the folder that had stuff that think contribute to the driver "confusion".
3.) Set Finder to see hidden files. Opened Terminal and entered:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
4.) Removed the (now unhidden) canon folder from /Library/Printers
5.) Install the new driver obtained in step 1. This installs the printer in the Printers & Scanner System Preferences, and the printer will run with the 10.6 driver.
6.) Reset Finder to hide hidden files from Terminal
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
