Trouble adding printer on network
Posted on 2014-02-26
I am having a problem adding a network printer to a Mac (Mountain Lion).
I install the drivers on the Mac. I then open System Preferences and then Print and Scan. I click the + button to add a printer. The printer I want to add is in the list as kind bonjour. I select the printer and auto select fails. In the Use field, I select "Select Printer Software...". The Printer software dialog box is display but is empty.
The auto select should be be able to identify the printer. It is not. What could cause it to not be able to identify the printer?
The printer works fine and is setup on the network properly. I have setup other identical Macs to print to this printer and auto select has work just fine. The problem seems to be specific to this Mac.
