I'm currently trying to install a Dell 1130n Printer Driver on macOS Sierra.

Upon installation, the installer displays this message:

Error opening file: libscmssc.dylib 1008:6, -35 Drive not found

This file is located in a folder in the same directory as the installation file.

I have disabled some security settings in macOS Sierra by running a line of code in Terminal, which I thought might have caused that issue:

sudo spctl --master-disable

But it does not appear to have any effect on the installer.

Any ideas?

Yeah, that installer is from 2011 so it may not work anymore... The following site suggests they dropped support for it in 10.10:


That being said, does it work if you select a generic driver?

Looks like people have used the SAMSUNG ML-191x 252x SERIES driver with success previously: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3528/t/19450382

  • This appears to work for now! Thank you so much, I'll report back if I have any other difficulties. The installer from 2011 did work on OSX El Capitan so I'm unsure on why it doesn't work on macOS Sierra.

  • For Sierra (and later), the drivers aren't included, but are available at this site: support.apple.com/kb/dl905?locale=en_US Dec 21, 2017 at 12:35
