Set up the Minolta 2300DL printer on OS X

The following was sent in as an anonymous hint; I'm attaching it here as a comment as it's really an extension of this hint.

-----
Thing have gotten a little better on the 2300DL front. The Zenographics driver works well for grayscale but the color text printing is blurry. Konica has released a 2430dl driver for OSX. The Konica color driver however doesn't respect the grayscale setting so I think you probably want to use both.

This older hint discusses how to get the Zenographics driver installed. You don't need to register anymore and can just download it here. Follow the instructions for setup and then test. Now go to Konica's website and get the 2430DL driver. Set this up the same way (including socket printing not IP). And you have good color printing. I haven't tried this with a direct USB connection so if anyone does feel free to edit this hint.

Set up the Minolta 2300DL printer on OS X
Authored by: designlevel2 on Jun 17, '05 10:52:15AM

I did this yesterday on 10.2 for a friend. I got the printer added just fine. But when I print i get a percentage and then an error saying could not connect to printer.

Any suggestions?

Set up the Minolta 2300DL printer on OS X - 2340DL driver works great!

The Konica Minolta 2430DL driver works perfectly with the 2300DL printer. I successfully installed it on my OSX Mac and it now prints beautiful color and b/w with no "burned" look in the black and white. Thanks for the great hint! Yeah!

Yes, it works great, but make sure you that when you install the printer, you select "HP JetDirect - Socket" for the Protocol.

Set up the Minolta 2300DL printer on OS X

Could anyone please guide me how to install 2430DL driver on mac os10.4.2 and use it for 2300DL printer. I have installed the driver but the printer does not recognize it. I set it up as HP socket, the same way as I did zenographics. The zenographics driver works fine but with blury text on color print. Thanks,
