Setting up a networked LaserWriter Pro 610 in 10.2 Network
I've experienced that the Princenter.app's option "automatic installation" of a PPD is not a good way to configure a LaserWriter Pro 610 under Jaguar. After a lot of unsuccessfully attempts - and a growing wish to come back to OS 10.1.x - finally I've tried the following way:
  1. Launch Printcenter.app
  2. Remove the printer (that doesn't work at all!)
  3. Select 'Other' in the pop-up menu of Installation window
  4. Select the Laserwriter 630 PPD in 'Classic's System Folder -> Extensions -> Printers Description folder.
Now I can print my documents in Jaguar!

Can verify that this trick is also needed to setup a Laserwriter 12/640 whether connected to Mac directly or via snow Airport Base Station

This trick does work, but my Laserwriter NTR still takes almost 5 minutes to print a single page. It seems to "process" forever".

At least it does eventually print.
