Found the office RICOH Aficio MP C4500 printer on the office network via IP# and the driver (v. 1.3) was installed automatically on my MB! Success!

 

BUT when printing to the printer from my MB all I get is a postscript dump, eg. text + blank pages. Searching the forums I get the idea that the driver is only for Post Script. And I guess (but don't know for sure) that the printer is lacking the postscript module/feature ...

 

From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669?viewlocale=en_US I see that the RICOH Aficio MP C4500 is supported by OS X Mountain Lion (and as I mentioned, it did install without any problems). But I can't see that it should be only PostScript?

 

From http://support.ricoh.com/bb/html/dr_ut_e/re/model/mp35/mp35en.htm I can only find driver (v. 1.0) for OS X 10.7, not any for OS X 10.8 – haven't tried it – and still I can't see that it should be only for post script enabled printers ...

 

My office windows pc is printing fine to the RICOH Aficio. The driver on here is a RPCS Printer Driver (v. 8.60). The office tech-support will only take care of pc setup - thus I'm on my own when it comes to setting up the printer from my MB!

 

Do I need a RPCS driver for OS X Mountain Lion? And what does RPCS mean?

 

Any help is most appriciated!
