Re: MP Navigator X and macOS Mojave

interesting Lisa, but I see the URL is for Canon Asia. I'm wondering is the Asian version has any compatibility issues with the USA versions of the Canon drivers and with the USA versions of Mojave. Which OS flavors are you using this version of Navigator with?

Not that Navigator is working at all now, so that could not get any worse, but I have visions of turning my whole system into a brick.....

Re: MP Navigator X and macOS Mojave

Just to follow up on this. I've got a Canon Lide 110, upgraded to Mojave and this link has worked for me, unlike any of the other suggestions on the thread so far. Thanks for posting!

Re: MP Navigator X and macOS Mojave

MP Navigator from the Canon Asia site won't work for my model (MG6220). Per the error window:

Yeah, I got the same error message with a US version MG5320. I guess American Mac users have been abandoned by Canon .. perhaps unless we have the newest, newest printer/scanner. And I don't know if even those would be compatible. I hated my old HP AIO and used to like my Canon. I'll probably try Epson next.

Re: MP Navigator X and macOS Mojave

Here's something you can try..

 

Keep your MP Navigator 3.1 installed (for now)

 

Install the MP Navigator 4 from the link canon asia link above

 

go to Applications/Canon Utilities

 

Right click on MP Navigator 4 and select "Show Package Contents"

Navigate to Contents > Plugins > Database

You will see a bunch of .plist files -- these correspond to the scanners that the asia 4.0 version of the app supports

 

Right click on MP Navigator 3.1 and select "Show Package Contents"

Navigate to Contents > Plugins > Database

You will see a bunch of .plist files -- these correspond to the scanners that the us 3.1 version of the app supports

 

Copy the files from the 3.1 database folder to the 4.0 database folder

 

Now when you start MP Naviagor 4 it will launch correctly and find your scanner.

 

I have not analyzed the contents of these plist files so I'm not 100% sure if this will work, but the contents of the files in the 3.1 version look pretty similar to the ones provided in the 4.0 version.

robp -- I don't know how you found this solution, but I'm grateful you did and that you shared it with us.  I was about to ditch my (otherwise perfectly fine) 9000F and shell out some $ for a new scanner, when I came across your post.  Thanks so much!!!

Re: MP Navigator X and macOS Mojave

Although these Navigator hybrid solutions seem to work for folks with dedicated scanners, none of these work for my MG5320 AIO printer/scanner on an I-Mac with Mojave. There is a workaround that does work for me. Open system preferences/ printer scanners and select scanner.  You can operate the scanner from there and save various types of files. But you have no editing capability. It's a kludge and not what I paid for. As I said before, I feel totally abandoned by Canon on this. Canon scanning devices should be sold with a discolsure label, "Mac users not supported." It's ridiculous that Canon is relying on user blogs to support basic usage of their devices on a major operating system. Boo hiss Canon.
