Client Mac fails no matter what driver pkg installer we try on one Mac computer . All others work fine. Any ideas?

either leave it as generic PS or maybe share it from another mac and connect to the share, it should pull the driver as well into the "library"
could also be a security thing where in system preferences, security you may need to allow 3rd party drivers?

Hi, you could add the printer manually or via AirPrint

Might not even be the right drivers for that version of Mac. I've seen it take as long as 90 days for copier manufacturers to write the proper drivers for a new mac OS release.

I'd check the manufacturer's website for an updated version of the driver. Apple just released update 2 for OS X 10.14 on 12/5/2018.... so that's 2 major updates since its release in September.

Try the generic PS for now. You may not have access to all the functionality, but you could at least get them working.

That's just the PPD installer. You can add the PPD through the CUPS server or manually copy the PPD to the /library/printers/PPDs/contents/resources folder. If you manually copy the PPD you can add a printer through the system preferences. If you want to use the CUPS add printer wizard open a browser and go to:

http://localhost:631

If it isn't enabled, click the desktop to get the finder. Click Go> Utilities. Scroll down to see Terminal. Open the terminal and type: Cupsctl WebInterface=yes then hit enter.

At the CUPS interface click administration, add printer. It works like an add printer wizard in Windows. Just select the found printer, model, next, next, etc. It will ask whether you want an existing system PPD or browse to where you extracted the PPD, and the last step asks you configure the options.

The moral of the story is: Don't buy a Mac
and if you do: Don't bring it to work

Macs are great at what Macs are great at but for everything else, including interfacing with the rest of the business world, they suck ass.

Could be worse... Could be Linux!!


...which under the hood is the same UNIX core as Macs....LOL!

Linux is king. Never been hacked. Toshiba has been using it for 10+ years. Very stable with great, easy to install print drivers.

I use Linux Mint when I'm playing around with it. All the media codecs are already installed, so it makes it less work to be functional... plus it's built off Ububtu, so you can use their repositories for any software downloads.
