Scan software Mac OS X 10.10 for CM 1312nfi MFP?

Thanks satrapad!  Worked like a charm.  Now I can scan from my Mac OS X 10.10.

I found a solution how to enable scanning for HP Color LaserJet CM2320fxi MFP on OS X 10.10 Yosemite (I guess this solution could work for other CMXXXX printers as well):

 

  1. Mount "HP-Color-LaserJet-CMXXXX-MFP-series_v1.5.0.dmg"
  2. Copy "HP CLJ CMXXXX MFP series v1.5.0.mpkg" to your desktop (it is important to copy this package to HDD so you can edit it)
  3. Right-click on the copied package and select "Show package content"
  4. Navigate to "Contents"
  5. Right-click on the "distribution.dist", select "Open with" and open this file with TextEdit or another text editor
  6. Find a line of code which looks like this (should be on beginning of the file):
    if(!(system.version.ProductVersion >= '10.5.0')) {
    and delete the exclamation mark "!" so the line should look like this:
    if((system.version.ProductVersion >= '10.5.0')) {
  7. Save and close text editor
  8. Now you CAN install this package on OS X 10.10 Yosemite - HP Director and HP Scan works like a charm

With these steps you just simply skip the OS X version check.

 

Hope it works for you.

Hi there,
it is called (and hidden) in file called HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP Series Mac OS X v10.5, v10.6 Full Solution.

 

YOu can download it here - it is hidden in choice Mac OS not in exact versions like "Mac OS 10.9: http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=3562007&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=219

 

 

Maybe you found that in search results but didn't notice it - the results in HP support center seems that showing nothing, but they are listing some files at the bottom (good joke). The HP website is not very good designed + if you have newer Mac  OS (10.6+), you will have to hack the driver.

 

So sad...

So I tried deleting the exclamation sign and saving the file and I get the following message:  "The file “distribution.dist” is locked. It gives me the option to duplicate the file but that does not solve the problem. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could follow up on this as I have wasted countless hours dealing with this printer.

Did you copied the DMG content to the hardrive? You cannot edit files inside DMG.

 

Unfortunatelly I edit the tool and for OS X 10.9 the scan function is not working. It seems the problem is when I have printer connected as network printer. Installed this tools on my Paralles Windows 10 and everything seems working ...
