View Full Version : Printer Setup

10th February 2009, 02:30 AM
Hello, I need help (re)setting up a printer on an antique: the computer is a beige PowerMac G3 (510), 266 MHz, 256 MB, running OS 9.1, and the printer is a LaserWriter 4/600 PS. All was well until recently, and I don't know what I've done to mess it up. In Chooser, AppleTalk is active but the LW4/600PS is not available to choose. Printer and computer are hooked up directly by cable.
How do I create a Desktop Printer, when the computer doesn't "see" the printer it's connected to??
Thanks, Ch.S.

Make sure you haven't inadvertently turned off LaserWriter8 in your Extensions Manager.

Heh, extensions mangler.

God, how I hated thee.
