I am trying to print to a Sharp-AR-M276 using a PS driver. Every time i print the page comes out saying this printer does not have license for Post Script.

Is there any way around this, i have never known you need a license for PS.

I've never heard of that error but I know the printer manufacturer needs a license to include Postscript in the printer.  What are you trying to print from?  Windows?  Linux?

Do you know that Postscript is actually installed in that machine?  In the brochure, it's an option as are the other printer interfaces.

If you can not print using PS drivers for your printer try printing using PCL drivers, you may have better luck.

According to the brochure, it's an extra cost option which means not necessarily installed.  There was something on the Sharp web site about licensing also but they were quite vague about it.  Here's a link to the 'manual': http://sharp-world.com/products/copier/ar-m276/image/arm276_ctlg.pdf

I contacted sharp, and basically, it is a physical piece of hardware, like an addon component, could cost upto 1-2k.
