Dell AIO 922 Printer for Mac

Posted on 2008-10-30

Has anyone found a working fix to allow Dell Printers to work on Mac's. More specifically, the AIO 922 on Leopard? I have seen possibly downloading the Lexmark equivalent, but it looks like most have not had any success? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Checkout turboprint, this works with many not supported printer for Linux and CUPS, and as far as I know Leopard also prints using CUPS.

Did you try turboprint? I also saw something that looked like a MAC version on their site. Also as far as I know you can request them to build drivers for your printer, but I don't really know what the requirements for that are.

The printer uses a USB connection, and absent a drive provided by the *vendor* (Dell),
there's no reason you should expect this to work.

Perhaps, as one option, you might try setting it up via (for example) a Linksys PSUS4 (wired) print server.
Others have had some success with that Linksys print server and other printers lacking drivers for Mac OS X.

(Purely as an aside):
With something like a LaserPrinter, your options change (GutenPrint, or using a generic printer driver).
I use a Dell LaserPrinter at work this way.
