Compatible printers

It should also be noted that while Jaguar doesn't have a huge list of supported printers, it does have drivers for most of the most compatible ones. Check your printer's manual to see which printers it's compatible with. Or, you can also check the Gimp print compatible printer list (it's at the bottom of that page). For example, I'm printing to my Brother HL-1240 just fine using the HP LaserJet II driver.

Compatible printers
Authored by: mfkilgore on Nov 17, '02 11:52:45AM

First, thanks for all the good advice in this thread. I now have what appears to be connectivity between my mac (powerbook g4, osx 10.2.2) and my windows desktop (windows xp) via SMB interface.

Now when I print from the mac the print job shows up in the print q on my windows box... which is good progress. It then disappears off of the queue and does not print. Printing works fine from other windows boxes so I know the printer setup on the Windows box is correct.

My guess is that I have not matched the printer drivers correctly. My printer is a Brother MFC-5100C. No obvious matches in gimp list and the printer and while the driver is installed on my mac, it does not appear in PrintCenter as a choice.

Any ideas?

Where can I get a driver for an HP LaserJet IIP for my Mac? The HP site shows only Windows drivers. I have the drivers for a Brother HL-1440--will they work with a LaserJet IIP?
