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)

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.
