10.6: Use a Dell 5100cn laser printer in Snow Leopard
Authored by: devlogic on Sep 03, '09 08:30:11AM

I use a 5100cn at work, and after installing the drivers from Dell, I'm seeing full functionality in regards to duplex and supply levels.

I did, however, have to go into the printer detail (Options and Supplies, then the Driver tab), and select the proper driver of "Dell Color Laser 5110cn v3015.103 PS," because even though I'd selected the Dell drivers when I added the printer, the driver selection was still initially showing as "Generic Postscript Printer."

Do you know if there are any issues with the Dell 3100cn? My boss is usually eager to update to a new OS without checking on printer issues, etc

Hi Scott,

Can you please let me know how you have configured Dell 3100cn Printer on your snow leopard?
We have configured using LPD and selected the printer driver as Dell 3100cn.
The moment i click on print, the print job is added to the print queue and after 10 second, the printer is going to paused state and the print job will never be printed.
Your help on this greatly appreciated..

Regards
Sivaram
