Looking for a way to add a Dell printer (1320c) when I don't have the original driver disk.  I looked in some of the old discussions and that didn't help much.  .  Please tell me it's not as complicated as what people are suggesting....  FWIW, it's a wireless printer on a network.

    Checking the Dell web site, they don't appear to have a driver for any version of OS X after 10.5. Here is a link to that driver.


    Note that I was able to install this driver on OS X 10.8, once I got past Gatekeeper, so you should be able to install it on 10.7. Then it should be just a matter of adding the networked printer by selecting IP > HP Jetdirect-Socket for the protocol and selecting the Dell 1320c in the Print Using menu. As to whether it then prints, I will have to leave that to you to test.

    You can Control-click (or right-click if you have it enabled) and then select Open from the menu that appears.


    Here's an Apple KB article about Gatekeeper
