    Default Fuji Xerox Docuprint C525A

    Installed SL, speed?? not sure about that - I'm finding a lot of applications are slower loading eg. Pages - but maybe that was just the first loading since upgrade.

    Disappointingly - my laser printer no longer works, Fuji say that have no knowledge of new drivers being released for 10.6 pretty poor stuff.

    However, a recently purchased HP Photosmart C7280 does work.

    Remove the drivers, plug the printer in, do an Apple software update. According to Apple, printer drivers are now cover under Apple software updates.

    I had similar issues on my HP printer, it worked for printing but not scanning. Did some searching, found a note from Apple saying that drivers are now covered as software updates on a large number of printers.

    I upgraded to 10.6, have the same printer, turned it on, went to print and up popped a dialog box "you need to download new drivers" or something similar- anyway, took < 2-3 minutes and all worked, no reboot.

    Maybe you missed something?

    There is a page on Apples site with all the FX printers now natively supported in it. My c2100 was in it, but when Leopard came out I had to wait for FX to put out new ones, this time I asked them and they reckoned the same driver should still work.

    We had to change our DC320 from appletalk to TCPIP but even then we had to turn on some strange options.

    10.6 doesn't support appletalk!

    Result, I called Applecare, the first lass, from China somewhere was hopeless - she clearly didn't know what she was talking about, I told her she was wasting my time and left the call. I tried again a few minutes later and got an Australian guy who knew his stuff. He showed me a better way to run wireless printers through Time Capsule - worked fine.

    Then later today an update came through from Apple for fujitsu printers.

    Angry Fuji Xerox C2100

    And does it? It doesn't for me. Every print job fails with the error:

    /Library/Printers/FujiXerox/filter/fxnpdftopdf.bundle/Contents/MacOS/fxnpdftopdf failed

    I have emailed FujiXerox, supplied them with the requested serial number, but have heard nothing further.

    Smile Fuji Xerox C2100: STOP PRESS

    I just ran Software Update and it found an updated driver this morning:

    FX Docuprint C2100 2.0

    and it works!

    I have found exactly the same thing with a Kyocera C5015N and also a Canon MF4350D

    I upgraded my MBPro and MBAir to SL and neither will print out of SL

    Specific drivers will apparently be available in 2 to 4 weeks from the manufacturers whereas Apple's drivers whilst supposed to work actually don't; and even tho Mac recognises the printers and adds them, when attempting to print I get an error message that is something like ' printer software incorrectly installed; please refer to manufacturer'

    a call to Apple tech support had me attempting to update drivers via SW Update but that yielded nothing and the tech guy admitted that it's be a wait until Canon and Kyocera came to the party.
    He also admitted that many are calling about similar printing issues, spinning beach balls and crashes.

    so I've taken the Air back to 10.5.8 (and it's sure is nice and snappy after an erase and fresh install!) left the MBPro with SL and any printing I simply transfer to the Air and print from there.

    sounds like bullsh*t to me Apple, that you would allow this to happen to Mac faithful in your haste to be first cab off the rank.

    roll on 10.6.1 and manufacturer specific drivers.

    as a footnote - I did manage to use the Gutenberg drivers to get the C5015N printing but it'd only yield Mono and not color.
    and oddly my old FS920 Kyocera prints fine under SL as long as there's a direct USB cable connection and not via Bonjour
    I intend to live forever - so far, so good
