I just bought a mac from a friend and i hooked up my canon MP160 printer/scanner and it will print but not scan properly. I have os x 10.6.8. Any help would be appreciated. I tried everything... I even went to Canon's website and downloaded a couple of different things.

I have OS 10.8.3 and I was able to download from the canon website the software for the scanner and the drivers for the scanner. I did have to go with a software/driver version that was older than the 10.8.3 (I think Lion 7) but it works perfect. I was able to immidiately scan documents and email them out.

Nice one. this worked for me too actually. I was pulling my hair out over the gutenprint thing. For some reason I couldn't find the gutenprint icon once it had installed. when I searched for gutenprint in the finder only the gutenprint dmg files showed up. Whatever, it works now.
