Changing the print driver on a Mac
Posted on 2008-06-25
I'm pretty good around Windows and Small Business Server and have just bought myself a mac due to increase in questions reagrding connectivity between Mac 7 Windows by my clients.
I'm an absolute Mac dummy, know nothing about them at all.
I've followed some instructions I found on hooking up a Mac to my SBS2003 domain and that is all working nicely. I now need to add a printer to the Mac.
So, I go into printers, click the + and it shows me the HP Color Laserjet 2600n on my server. I select it and it only gives me the option to install it using the HP Color Laserjet 2605 driver (2600n is not on the preinstalled drivers list). I have accepted this and installed it. I can print and it does appear in the print queue on my SBS server so I know the communications is fine. But it sits in the queue and will not go and I suspect this maybe down to the wrong driver listed.
I have tried installing the correct driver from HP's website. I install the package and it completes but nothing happens. the driver does not appear on the drivers list, as it would within Windows.
I guess really I need a dummys guide to how to get this working!
Thanks for any help.
