Do not install drivers from the included disk.
Mac OS X 10.5: Included printer drivers
If the included drivers do not work then download the newest version from the hp site.
It appears HP provided apple with drivers for that printer and there is also a gutenprint driver included.
I looked up the hp 895Cse and see it is on the list of supported printers for Leopard.
Turn on the printer and make sure it is connected.
You should be able to go to the print and fax system preference and delete then re-add the printer.
If you can't get it to print, try downloading, installing and running the software for that printer from the HP site, then restart the computer, and try to add again.
If it is not working, call Apple, if you have a computer with Leopard installed it is either new enough that you should still have support or you have upgraded to Leopard and it comes with 90 days of support.
I just bought an HP Laserjet 2100M, and am using the driver for 10.4 (Tiger). It prints no problem. I had an opportunity to try this printer out before buying it. My friend and I actually replaced the Laserjet folder that leopard put on my HD w/ the 10.4 Laserjet folder from my friend's computer running on OS 10.4.
iMac007 -- for my headaches w/ the 895Cse, see my posting and others in the thread started by the HP/Leopard designer. It's a very informative thread because the HP guy really explains the problem in detail and offers many possible workarounds for specific printers.
You see, at the date of release for OS 10.5, HP didn't actually create an update for the drivers to go specifically w/ Leopard. So many people, like yours truly, have been unable to use their old printers. HP now has a short list of C series beta drivers specifically designed for 10.5, but the 895Cse isn't among the lucky printers.
However, I am delighted I can get the HP Laserjet 2100M to print, Tiger driver or no.
Kallimachos -- I didn't need your workaround after all, but thanks for offering it. Didn't have to reboot before printing. My friend and I were able to put the computer to sleep and then print, and even turn printer on & print w/out turning on computer first. Next will try setting it up to network. Will keep you posted if I find out anything helpful.
