Good question! I have installed everything suggested for El Capitan.
I have a CanoScan f and am running High Sierra. Many thanks! This helped me. Either way, we do like a good product when we come across it. Many newer scanners also suffer from less practical design than this one, which made me give it one more shot. And your advice worked! I installed the El Capitan-suggested files mentioned in the article, but the machine would still not recognise my LiDE F. The matter was solved by installing Toolbox 5. Is it possible to install a canoscan F to scan to my Mac Sierra I am in Yosemite and have a HP-Scanjet Previously I had El Capitan and it worked fine.
I could scan three times, but many other times, the app finds the scanner, the scanner lights up and starts some movement, but soon it gives up and does not finish scanning. However, there is then no further information on how to get this to come up in the SANE preferences or to be able to add as a scanner in Print and Scan preferences. So it would suggest that it works but how do I get it to work with Mac OS and the interfaces? Pingback: fixed : use unsupported scanner in OSX I have a CanoScan f, and am running High Sierra.
The Canon software, the latest version of MP Navigator launches but displays a failure alert with the option to send it to Apple or cancel. Researching the problem, I found this:. This can install it and your scanner will now appear in Image Capture as a device. Pretty sweet, no? Since this thread is titled: use unsupported scanner in OSX Great to hear you got it working! I should have been clearer in my post. So, let me rephrase this. Should I, on my iMac running High Sierra, follow the instructions below in order to get around the fact that the scanner will not work with the software on the Canon site?
Apparently those who had installed it under El Capitan are able to use it still even after upgrading to newer versions of macOS. I was hoping there is a hack we can do to the installer that would permit us to install under High Sierra or Perhaps do a manual installed of each component within the install package.
Unfortunately I have not heard back from the developer for over year about getting an update. Hi Frank, Actually, we do not use VueScan. We found a factory refurbished Epson V39 scanner for the same price as the VueScan software and so decided to just buy a new scanner. We can probably sell the F on CraigsList for the price of the Epson and so break even, money-wise. But because of the new SIP System Integrity Protection it will probably be impossible to install it in the same folder as it used to be in on your old Mac. Most of the time the older versions of the CanoScan software still run.
If I can and if it works, I will report back. What I tried failed.
Here is what I did. I then launched Image Capture, but it came up blank. Tried it, but that did not help. Find a dealer. CanoScan LiDE This product is supported exclusively through our web site.
