Canon lbp 1120 driver mac os

After months of frustration of having to use Virtual PC running Windows XP in order to print to the Canon LBP 3000, I’ve finally discovered that Canon has indeed (albeit silently to the whole world) released a CAPT printer driver that works without the ridiculous requirement of having to have the Japanese version of OS X installed. This is not the Linux CUPS version, it is the full LBP CAPT driver made by Canon themselves. Software support: 10.2.8 thru to 10.4.4 (in English)

It apparently works with:

LBP-2410 / 1210 / 1120 / 1110 / 1110, Premium / 1110SE, LBP5200 / 5000 / 3600 / 3500 / 3300 / 3210 / 3200 / 3000.

I’ve tested it with LBP3000 on 10.4.5 (directly and via Printer Sharing). The installer is in Japanese, and it quits all applications and requires a restart, and requires you to manually setup the printer using the System Preferences. After this mild digression, you have full printer functionality and setup options (including toner usage), all in English, and it’s nice and fast.

My insanity has now gone, and I can now terminate that unnecessary relationship with Virtual PC for good!

PS: Japanese language skills are not required, just press the default button(s) when installing. If you’re looking for an excellently cheap printer, I can now seriously recommend the LBP-3000.

Hint Options

Thank you very much for this hint. The drivers works great with my Laser Shot LBP-1210.

Working with Canon LBP3000 on Mac OSX Tiger, the printing job is indeed very good, but I have not been able to use this printer in economy mode ie. draft quality, the way I used to on Windows.
As Dirtymouse suggested, if there are such setup options, where do I find them??

All setup options are in the printer dialogue box, third from top pop-up menu under «quality» > «Quality Settings» Button, there you can specify halftone patterns, dot density and toner saver, as well as image enhancement.

That’s where they are for the LBP3000 anyway.

dirtymouse — ‘fix a troubled Mac’ — troubleshooting PDF book

Hi! I have just read your recent post. I am trying to find an Apple Mac driver so that I can give my Canon LBP-1210 to my daughter to run on her Power PC iMac.

I have downloaded a copy of mxcapt160.dmg.gz (and the pdf manual) from a Japanese Canon site. Is this the driver you used and if so does it install in English? If this is not the driver you used, could you please tell me where you were able to get it from, I am having difficulties with ‘Googling’ it.

You might like to reply to my Yahoo e-mail account at pjafrombbay@yahoo.com.au

The download link to the Driver is in the tip.

To install, decompress the dmg, mount it and double click the installer icon. Then press the pulsating blue (or grey) button which indicates the default option. ie: install. Keep pressing the default button until your computer restarts.

Thanks for that Dirtymouse — do you know if the LBP 3000 printer would work through USB-Wifi sharing on an Airport Express?

Is anyone out there doing this with this little printer?

I have a Canon LBP 5000 and love the printer (Apart from the fact that my G4 PowerMac laggs when printing). I want to be able to use it on a print server, but the only print server I can find that i know is compatable cost’s more than the printer. I have an Airport basestation and originally intended to use that as the print server. But it doesn’t work. I get an error number when trying to add the printer. Any thoughts?

Most excellent! I wonder why Canon won’t link to this driver themselves (and translate it in the process).
It is worth noting that the drivers are rather old and thus not all printing options are supported in every application. I first thought is was because I’m running on an Intel Mac, but Photoshop has got all the (printer specific) extras, so I guess it’s a matter of Cocoa/Carbon applications using different hooks to the printing system.

I’ve used this on my LBP 1120, connected directly via usb which worked perfectly. I’ve tried to connect to it via smb connected on a windows xp machine but I’m not sure how to get it to work. Is there anyway to get it working this way?

My LBP 1120 and Mac OS 10.5 do not work together. Wondering if you have any tips on setting it up under Printer & Fax?

Do you have Mac OS 10.5?

Hi I’ve tried to use the Japanese installer that runs through reboots etc, but I don’t see «Canon» in the printer list dropdowb in the printer browser in the print centre. The Canon folder exists in the Library/Printers folder along with other vendors Any idea why its not appearing in the drop down? I’m not on Intel.

I had the same problem as you. Power-cycling the LBP3000 fixed it. It then appeared in the printer list. Hope this works for you.

Thank you so much for this hint. I was searching since a long time for a solution to print from my PB to a Canon LBP 1210 printer. Now it works perfectly. Well done!
Anybody knows a driver for this printer for Linux? I tried the one on the Canon webpage, but I could not get it to work.

I got this driver which worked great, until I wanted to print in Duplex. Can’t find any way to use my lbp3300’s duplex capability ;(

any help appresiated

I have an LBP33300 fitted with a network card. I can print via USB from MacOS X and over the network from a Windows XP machine using the drivers provided on the CD. But I can’t print from a Mac (10.4.4) over a network. Any ideas where I might be going wrong? Any help is much appreciated.

Hello, I’m hoping someone can help. I’ve just got a Mac running Tiger and am trying to install the driver you linked to. The install seems to go OK and the machine resets, but then I can’t see any available option for my LBP-1120 printer. There seems to be a capt folder in the libraries/printers/canon directory and I can get the print monitor .app running, but selecting this as my printer just isn’t working. I’m running 10.4.8 on a g4 powermac. Please help!

Hi there — I’ve just updated to a G% from my G4 Powerbook which has recently died.
I found the old mxcapt160.dmg file which I had used to install my LBP3000 printer earlier this year (without a drama). Now I’m running 10.4.10 and am unable to get prompts / instructions in English, so I’m flying blind. It appears to install, but restarts and can be found nowhere. what am I doing wrong?
I’ve got the old G4 in Target mode and can see all the items in the old library — is there something I can do to transfer these over?

try copying over this folder to the same respective (root Library) location.

dirtymouse — ‘fix a troubled Mac’ — troubleshooting PDF

Quite a few people keep asking how to Printer Share this Printer.
Here are the extensive step by step instructions.

Here is the technique (that i used) with my LBP3000 but it should also work with the following supported models with this software: 1110/1120/1210/2410/3200/3210/3300/3500/3600/5000/5200

Step 1 (on your Print Server Mac)
Install the software on your desired print server Mac. (i’m using a G4 cube with 10.4.8). Reboot after installation.

Step 2
Turn ON the Printer, Connect to Mac via the USB port/cable

Step 3
Go to Printer Setup Utility (located /Applications/Utilities/Printer Setup Utility) and click the «add printer» icon in the toolbar. This will display the «Printer Browser»

Step 4
Select the LBP3000 (USB) from the list. If it doesn’t appear, disconnect USB cable and reconnect. Failing that, turn the Printer OFF/ON.

Step 5
The pop-up menu at the bottom, titled: «print using» should automatically select «CAPT Driver». Click the «add» button. There is nothing manual to select here. It either appears if software installation was successful. It it doesn’t appear, re-install. Go back to Step 1.

Step 6
Verify that your new USB connected printer is working. Do a test print from the Printer Server that is physically connected to the printer.

Step 7
Enable Printer Sharing, System Prefs > Sharing > Tick/enable Printer Sharing.

Step 8 (on your Mac)
Install the same software on your client (non print server) Mac as in Step 1,
(the software forces a restart, so save your work first)

Step 9
Go to Printer Setup Utility (located /Applications/Utilities/Printer Setup Utility) and click the «add printer» icon in the toolbar. This will display the «Printer Browser»

Step 10
Select the LBP3000 (Shared Printer) from the list. If it doesn’t appear, check that your Print Server Mac can still see/connect to the printer (refer Step 4)

Step 11
The pop-up menu at the bottom, titled: «print using» should automatically select «LBP3000». Click the «add» button. There is nothing manual to select here. It either appears if software installation was successful. It it doesn’t appear, re-install. Go back to Step 8.

My server (10.4.8) uses «CAPT Printer» and My own Mac (10.4.10) uses «LBP3000» so i can only guess that the names changes with different Mac OS X versions.

If the Print using pop-up menu does not automatically select CAPT Printer or LBP3000, You will need to make sure the software was correctly installed.

You can verify that it exists at this location (top level, not users Library).
If it doesn’t appear, you will need to reinstall.

I have not tested this with Leopard (10.5).
If you have and it’s working, please let me know.

PS: i don’t work for Canon, i can’t read Japanese, and i don’t know how to do this on a windows PC. all i know is written above 🙂

dirtymouse — ‘fix a troubled Mac’ — troubleshooting PDF

Hello all. I’m currently in Japan using OSX 10.5 on a MacBook.

Just bought a LBP3300 with hopes of making it work on either OSX or Parallels (running XP).

I grabbed the driver DMG listed here (much thanks to dirtymouse) and the install went fine.

Problem is, when i try to print i get the error «Specified paper is incorrect».

I am using A4 paper, have the back of the printer set to A4, the tray is set to A4 and EVERYTHING in OSX set to A4.

I grabbed the English PDF manual from the AU Canon site. The software portion of the manual obviously only deals with the Windows software. The manual mentions that once you install the printer and load up the paper, you need to first «register the paper size» because the tray/printer cannot auto-sense the size (the A4/Letter switch on the back deals on with duplexing if i understand the docs correctly).

The manual then goes on to describe the process of how you register the paper size using the Windows software. It appears that the Win util sends this info to the printer, not just setting the OS driver options.

I see no way of doing this «registering» from the OSX. I would assume that the full Japanese installer has a util or method for this but that’s just a guess.

Not sure if this was necessary with the LBP3000 that dirtymouse is using, but if it was, perhaps that was originally taken care of by using Virtual PC on the Mac. I’m currently trying to get the printer to show up in XP under Parallels, but that’s a whole other can of worms that we wont get into here.

If anyone has any thoughts on this, i’d love to hear them.

Sorry to reply to my own post, but i just got it working in XP under Parallels, and was able to register the paper size just fine, but this did not fix the problem in OSX. It still complains about incorrect paper.

At least it works in XP now.

Thanks for the hint. I have downloaded the driver for Mac Leopard, but when I go to print on my LBP-2410 the message that appears says that it is the wrong paper selection and a red light appears on my printer. I don;t seem to be able to change the setting or anything to choose the default tray (there is only one). What do I do?

Update for 10.5 intel mac available here:

dirtymouse — ‘fix a troubled Mac’ — troubleshooting PDF

G’day, I just installed the CAPT driver for Leopard, however System Preferences is permanently recognising my Canon LBP-1120 as idle, yet when I run the Printer Utility it cannot find a connection. Also, when I try to run the CAPT Printmonitor «Get Printer Information», the response is «Failed to read Module. Reinstall.: 10511»
Anybody have any ideas? Please?

Hey, im having a similar problem with loading my LBP-1120 printer. I have Mac os x 10.5.4. I have downloaded version 1.7 of the canon japanese driver but when i try and print the printer remains idle and the status comes up as stopped.

Any help will be appreciated.

I have the LBP 2410
I loaded the Japanese Drivers
But every time I go to print it tells me I am out of paper
This is so annoying
I have a perfectly good color laser printer
a fantastic 17″ ProBook
and I can’t print
Can somebody help me who has had experience with this problem?
Thank you.

I’ve just moved from PC to Mac OS 10.5, and my Canon LBP 3018 — purchased in China and reserved to that market it seems -, works perfectly with the driver.
At least Canon LBP 3010 and 3050 models are supported too. Maybe more.

Downloadable directly from:
Click the only checkbox on the screen (section called дё‹иЅЅ)
Then click the link that appears below (called 点击这里)
Download should start.

Thanks to staff from Apple Store Sanlitun Beijing for helping me find out!

More details about CAPT 2.40 (Chinese website but full doc in English included):

OS support:
Mac OS X 10.3.9/10.4/10.4.1/10.4.2/10.4.3/10.4.4/10.4.5/10.4.6/10.4.7/10.4.8/10.4.9/
* Cannot be used on Mac OS X Classic.

Printer support:
Canon LBP5300/LBP5100/LBP5050 series/LBP3310/LBP3250/LBP3150/LBP3108/

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.

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.

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.

dirtymouse — ‘fix a troubled Mac’ — troubleshooting PDF

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

Just installed the CAPT printer driver v1.7 on my Macbook (OS X 10.6.2) for my LBP-2410 and it works. Thanks a lot dirtymouse.

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.

Sorry, but you’re out of luck (as am I). On Canon’s Japanese web site, they state that the following CAPT printers will not be supported under 10.6: LBP-1210, LBP-1120, LBP-1110. I tried last month to find an alternative driver, but so far nothing has surfaced.

Hi. I own LBP 3100 and I’m using OS X 10.5. I’ve Downloaded a the recommended driver, the Chinese one in the end. The printer as appear in the pirinters now, but still no luck with getting anything to print. It sends to printer, but I get nothing?

Any help would be much appreciated. I’m new to a mac.

all I get when i try to add a printer is: «Unable to locate a suitable driver. Use Software Update to download a driver if one is available.»

Also found this post true google. I’ve tried everything that is over here. Tried lots of other things on other sites, but nothing worked.

Really getting tired of this.

My printer is canon I-sensys LBP 2900B

Nothing with that CAPT works, anyone has a tip for me? Or where i could find the right capt to get this thing starting? Everytime i install cap and then i go to printer and faxes, and nothing is over there, and trying to add a printer doesnt work either.
Rebooted en unplugged thousand times.

Having the newest macbook with software 10.6.2

i really hope someone can help me!

Probably a dumb question . downloaded and installed driver (mxcapt160.dmg) as suggested. It quit all applications and restarted. Set up printer in system prefs. But my printer Canon LBP 3200 did not appear in drop down box when selecting driver. I am using mac os 10.6.2. Tried copying the CAPT file to the library file that contained other printer files. Any suggestions please?

Iґm new in the Apple world.
I switched from Vista to MacBook and run MAC OS X version.10.6
But I want to use my good old CANON LBP-1120 Printer.

I downloaded the japanese Canon-driver as described in one of the hints here.
I installed the driver. I restartet my MacBook. I switched the printer off/on.
But my printer still doesnґt work (the data will not printed — it goes automatically on hold).
I also cannot find the right driver in the system (printer-window).

What shall I do?
Pls help. Thx!!

I am wondering if your problem is fixed. We have Mac OS X 10.5 and Canon LBP 1120.

I followed all the solutions that are given in this thread and have made that the 3 files (jp.canon.MSU.SetupInfo.plist, jp.canon.MSUE.UserRegInfo.plist & jp.co.nikon.MCA.plist) from the installation dmg file are saved under Library/Preferences/CAPT Printer.

When test print is attempted it returns Operation could not be completed. client-error-not-possible.

The printer is on and connected to the Mac via USB.

I have also tried «Reset printing system» under Print & Fax.

I suspect that the three .plist extension files are just text files although I am not sure.

Would really appreciate if someone can help.

It looks a CAPT driver for LBP series driver is now available!
I’ve downloaded it for my MAC OS X 10.6.5 for my i-Sensys LBP6000 and it now works like a breeze — it takes less than a second to start printing!

It tooks 5h to find it. I live in China and as other fellows I bought printter «no problem» and then i hv to find all by my self.

I went to my friend office bcze there was one chines girl who talk good english..

So finally problem is solve. just go to www.canon.com.sg

Note that most these so called «fake promised» on web and free program etc. are «hook» if u press anytime «yes» etc and you downloead something it is usually virus etc.. so, read, think and take you time..
these russian «»mobs» just enjoy life bcze so many stupid people «click» yes so easily.
there u can find if and rest is easy. just donload right driver «LBP3018B» I hv no idea why «B» is there but it works. I hv pover book Pro and newest 10.6.5 MAC OS and all is now well 🙂

There are also many other printter but this was what I try to find 2 days before I get info where and how..

I followed your link and installed the driver from japan canon web page, but THERE IS NO DRIVER FOR 1120 MODEL. So my printer still doesn’t work. Anyone has other ideas where to get this f. ing driver?

Thank you dirtymouse, the drivers mxcapt160.dmg.gz, works great with my Laser Shot LBP-1210 in my ibook G4 with OS X Tiger 🙂

But for the same printer, the mxcapt170.dmg from http://cweb.canon.jp/drv-upd/lasershot/captu-intelmac.html doesn’t works with OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard.
What can I do? Anybody have a hint?

I have a macbook pro with OSX 10.6.8.

I want to install a Canon LBP 3200 and download the file and someone might say or indicate by email to make it work so you can use my printer

I have done everything you have recommended and so far so good, however, when i go to add my LBP-1120 it does not automatically select the driver and therefore will not let me add the printer.

What should i do? have i missed a step?

My LBP3100 stopped working after I upgraded to OS X10.8

Any ideas or workarounds before the new drivers are available?

I already tried downloading the latest OS X10.7 drivers from the Japanese site, it didn’t work.
