10.6: Possible solution for printing to HP Deskjet 990cxi

Well The Linux drivers have been ported to a Mac. Just use the web page:

10.6: Possible solution for printing to HP Deskjet 990cxi
Authored by: Sven G on Nov 14, '09 09:05:04AM

Yes, of course I know that; but HPIJS is only a subset of HPLIP: for example, with HPIJS you only get basic printing (if it works) with multifuntion devices, while with HPLIP (sofar only on Linux) you get full or almost full functionality (similarly to the proprietary HP Mac OS X drivers and software).

If HPLIP were available for Mac OS X, old multifunction devices - such as the OfficeJet G85 and others - could be used not only for printing, but also for scanning and even faxing on some models.

Maybe it is also the USB implementation on Mac OS X that has delayed such a full port of HPLIP - who knows...?
