Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2010 6:42 PM (in response to IIe)Get a printer for which you can obtain drivers from the manufacturer or that are supplied in your version of OS X.
Apple does not make printer drivers. The drivers provided in OS X are supplied by the manufacturers of the printers. If a driver isn't available it's a problem with the manufacturer's lack of support of Mac users.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MBP Unibody; MBP C2D 2.33 Ghz; MBP 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iMac C2D 17"; MB 2.0 Ghz; iPad 32G; 80GB iPod Video; iPod Touch; iPod Nano 2GB

still hope to get some expert advice from an IT person or somebody who used many different brands of inkjet printers and their drivers with MacOS.Power Mac G5 1,6 GHz Uniprocessor, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 4 Gb RAM - GeForce 6800 GT DDL - 2 x HD 500 Gb
Currently Being ModeratedOct 19, 2010 7:09 PM (in response to IIe)I use Canon inkjets and AIO's in the office and at home and I find the drivers to be very compatible with 10.5 and 10.6. Their drivers are Universal Binary, meaning they support PPC and Intel Mac's, and the supporting software is okay - although I tend to use the included OS X software like Preview for scanning.MacBook Pro 17, Mac OS X (10.6.4), MacPro 2x3GHz Quad-Core, Xserve G5, iPhone 4
