Pro-1000 with Big Sur issue

Hello,

 

I've got the following problem with my IPF pro-1000 printer and Mac Big Sur :

 

With help of Media Configuration Tool I installed several customized paper types for third party papers into the printer. As ususal, I tried to download these to my printerdriver which is 22.20 and confirmed to be compatible with MacOS Big Sur 11.XX by Canon.

When I start the process, the driver recognizes and announced that there are customized paper to be downloaded, but then the process tries to install any program or tool, and after inserting my password for the Mac it failes. In fact, nothing happens after I inserted the password anymore, regardless how long I wait.

 

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver and the tools 2 times, but still have the same issue.

 

A different PC running Windows 10 in the same network / office doesn't have the problem and is able to download all customized papers without any problems.

 

Does anyone have an idea how to solve this issue ?

I am using a iMac Desktop running OS 11.6. Just ran an update on the operating software and now when I attempt to print to my PRO-1000 printer using the Canon software, it immediately freezes Photoshop. All my menus go gray, I cannot quit, or select anything. I have to force quit out of PS. I am in the middle of printing a 260 sheet limited edition portfolio. I need this printer working. I reloaded the Canon drivers, retarted, nothing changed. I need some assistance ASAP. Thanks

There is a problem with macOS 11.6 and the Canon print software. You will need to print from Ps.

That would be fine, but the results are not the same.  I am in the middle of a 260 print production run and the color management will not be the same from PS. 

Sorry I can't help you there.

 

It has been my experience that since the printer driver is what is actually controlling the printing I have get difference in output regardless of what software I am printing from as long as the settings are consistent and correct.

My experience with this printer is it only prints well when running through Canon's software and that's not working with the current Mac OS upgrade.
