10.6: Use a Dell 5100cn laser printer in Snow Leopard
Authored by: SIBOYD on Sep 07, '09 08:10:47AM

I was pi**ed that I could no longer use the full functionality of my 5100cn after upgrading to Snow Leopard. Fortunately, after a little research and help from others I got it back. Install Rosetta from the Snow Leopard Optional Install Package on the install disk. Then download and install the Mac OS X driver available from Dell. After I did that the driver was selectable I couold add the 5100cn as a new printer and I'm back in business.

10.6: Use a Dell 5100cn laser printer in Snow Leopard

I tried it all. I followed every bit of advice I could find and nothing I did made it work UNTIL... (Keep in mind, I'm in a windows network in a large corporation)... I added the printer using "Windows" in the "Add Printer" dialog and browsed through the network (having to enter my network credentials each time I dug through a server) until I found the printer, selected the appropriate driver and I could finally print!!!

The first couple times I had to enter my network credentials, but it now works!

I really think the problem was that when I originally set up the printer using "IP", it never asked for my network credentials and hence probably failed.

Hopefully this helped somebody.
