Print to an unsupported USB printer on Airport Extreme
Authored by: platon on Dec 02, '04 12:55:52PM

I had no luck to get my OKI B4250 printing via AirPort. The hint didn't work for me. With Gimp-Print I couldn't even print, when the Oki was directly connected to my computer.
Till I found the solution:
On the manufacturer's homepage I downloaded the Linux-Driver for my Printer and copied it to "/Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/en.lproj".
In Printer Setup Utility I followed all the steps described in the hint. Except in the pulldown menu "Printer Model" I choosed "Other" and opened the newly copied Linux-Driver. Maybe that works with all printers, if there exists a Linux-Driver for it.
