The drivers can be found here:  KM-5035 Downloads

Scroll to the bottom of the page... Mac and Linux are the last downloads listed.

OSX should have the drivers for the KM5035 built-in. You should find it in the printer list when you add a printer.

If it's not there, all you need is the PPD file, which you can take from a Windows driver if necessary, as it is a text file. The PostScript driver itself is part of OSX, the PPD is needed to tell the driver about printer features (trays, duplexing, colour, etc)

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

Ok, here's the thing. It's a Kyocera KM5035 copier on IP 192.168.128.5 - same LAN.

Windows can print to this copier - no problem.

But the Macbook OS X 10.8+ doesn't work...

The drivers in the above website is only until 10.5

As I explained, grab the PPD file from a Windows PC, install that on the Mac and then install the printer. When asked for the printer model , point it to the location of the PPD. The default location for PPDs is /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/en.lproj/.

Set the file's privileges to Read Only for Owner, Group, and Everyone.
