10.6: Faxing with HP Color LaserJet 2840
Authored by: charliez on Dec 31, '11 02:30:44AM

Success on 10.6.8, the original tip missed a few steps.

1. Delete the <printer> section that refers to the Fax printer in the /etc/cups/printers.conf file (save it to a backup file though!)
2. Open System Preferences > Printers & Fax -> Add a printer (i.e. click the + sign)
3. Choose the "Default" column
4. Select the HP laserjet (should come up as the only one)
5. Name it appropriately (I just added the word "Fax" to the end of it)
6. Click the "Print Using" list and choose the HP Laserjet Series CUPS v1.1
7. Click "Add" button.

I now have a working Fax! (The topping on the cake is you can share the fax on the network!!!)

Enjoy :-)
