    Question Gutenprint Version Not Compatible with Sierra


    Happy mac user here - with an interesting question..

    Just upgraded my Mac Book Pro 2014 to Sierra and got a message stating that "Gutenprint: this version is not compatible with this version of macOS".

    I had a bit of a search around the Internet and it looks like this is a driver used for ink jet printers?

    I can't find anything in applications, and my printers are all lasers (Konica Minolta C250, HP Laserjet 3010, and Brother HL-L2360D).

    So do i need Gutenprint..
    Perhaps an app needs it?.. could it be needed by a PDF app or perhaps a graphic one like Pixelmator?

    Can i just uninstall it (i have no idea how) - or should i just upgrade it to the latest version?

    The same thing happened to me, but I installed the latest version from Sourceforge. So far, it seems to work fine with Sierra.

    Thanks for the reply, and I'm glad that the install worked for you.
    Can you tell me exactly what version you installed?

    I have had no problems printing, so it looks like i don't need Gutenprint, but am not sure if the drivers are disable or uninstalled?
