I am still running my old Mac and still using the F-4180 printer you sold me. The other day I got to thinking about possibly resurrecting my old HP560C printer so Mark in the basement could have the F-4180 printer. One reason I gave the old HP up was because the HP would not work with the new OS 10-5 operating system you installed once. Then later we went back to the OS 10.4.11 I had been using previously. So Mark is having trouble with his ink guzzling printer and I thought maybe he could have the F-4180 and I could go back to my HP.
The only problem is I can't seem to get the Serial Enabler to connect me to the C.U.P.S. (Common UNIX Printing System) site. It keeps asking for passwords I do not have, and when I read up on various websites, the jargon drives me away from a possible solution. Do you feel like learning about the Gutenprint system whereby "obsolete" printers are made usable by downloading a driver that the Gutenprint or CUPS people have developed?
I have attached a few things you might look at to see if all this seems feasible. My basic problem is 1.) I have trouble throwing perfectly good stuff like printers away, and 2.) I'd rather use this printer than a new expensive one, especially if all it needs is a downloaded driver. Tell me what you think, and I am in no particular hurry either. Thanks.
