I have a Xerox Phaser 6120, but there are no drivers for OS X 10.7.4. How can I use this printer? Is CUPS a solution? Did anybody rtied this?
Is there a driver for Mountain Lion coming?


Looking forward for solutions, thanks.

    People who need to SCAN and/or PRINT without a compatible Lion driver from their manufacturer can use Apple's very basic "PRINT & SCAN" utility in System Preferences:



    1. Click the Apple menu ( ), and then click System Preferences .
    2. Click Print & Scan ( ).
    3. Click Scan , and then click Open Scanner .
    4. Click Show Details . The details of the scan display, including options to modify scan settings such as output type.Figure 2: Example of the Show Details scanning screenImage: Example of the Show Details scanning screen
    5. Change any settings as necessary, and then click Scan .

    The next window looks like this:


    Hope this helps

    But one can only choos Print/Scan when a Printer is installed. It looks like you have installed a HP Printer.

    The specs for this printer show that it supports Postscript and PCL. So for starters I suggest you try creating a print queue using the Generic Postscript printer driver included with Lion. If this prints then you have confirmed that it does support Postscript, so the next step is to find a driver, or at least a PPD, that will let you access more finishing options. But if you are happy with just printing then the Generic PS driver will work fine.

    Or try using the driver for the 6130 if the finishing options are crucial…
