Print from Classic using native OS X printer drivers
Authored by: chibiabos on Mar 12, '05 08:44:49AM

Works as advertised on my G5 and Epson CX4600 until the print job gets to the printer app. Then, the print queue automatically stops. Restarting the queue has no effect. Best I can do is convert the PostScript file to pdf and print from Acrobat or Preview. (It should be easier than this!)

Print from Classic using native OS X printer drivers

It works for me for the first file, then hangs - the second and other files never make it into the printer queue although they appear in the print jobs folder. This is printing fromoan OS9 machine to a G5 running Panther. Printer is a USB HP840C on the G5.

Bloody silly - all my windoze machines can use this printer just fine, but not my Macs!

I wonder if it's something to do with the script not cleaning up properly - if a second file arrives while the first is printing does that run a second copy of the script(sorry, I'm not used to the minutie of Applescript)
