Use an unsupported Konica Minolta laser printer System
I just picked up a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350W laser printer on sale cheap (for $50!), only to find out it was not compatible with OS X Tiger, and I could not find much help searching on the web.

However, I found a related hint for unsupported printers and Foomatic. So I used the Foomatic install linked from that hint, and this PPD from linuxprinting, and voila, printing on the cheap!

Use an unsupported Konica Minolta laser printer

I had trouble with this. Used the installer and the Minolta-PagePro_1250W-min12xxw.ppd file. Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but didn't work. Any suggestions?

Chad, I was able to get PagePro 1350W to work on 10.3.9 by following David's instruction for 10.4.3:

Since David does not go into detail on supporting software needed, here is the link to Marc's since David's instruction is based on it:

Good luck.

I followed these same instructions above to get it to work as well.

Hi, I am very new to macs and I have a pagepro 1350W as well. I've tried figuring it out but I have no luck. I have a macbook pro, with osx v. 10.4.6

Can you please tell me what programs and drivers I need to download as well as what I need to do after it downloads? Thank you very much.
