- OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion systems will have the necessary printing software already installed, or will automatically download and install software when the printer is connected or configured. Do not install software that came with the printer as it may be out of date, and do not connect the printer to your Mac yet. Follow the instructions that came with the printer to unpack, install ink or toner, and insert paper. Finally, use the instructions in this article to connect the printer to your Mac.
- Make sure the printer model is listed in Printer and scanner software, which is a comprehensive list of all printer models that have compatible software for OS X Mountain Lion and OS X Lion.
Did you mean printer, or pointer?
The pointer is a bit of a devil if you're not used to how the trackpad works - the entire surface clicks down at the front side. To drag a file, I press and hold down with my thumb and use my index finger to move an item.
Once you've gotten the hang of that, point and click your way to the System Preferences (the gears icon in the dock) and open up the Trackpad control. (In the Hardware row, second across) there you can set it for multi-touch gestures or turn the lot off if it's too much. (I have mine set for only a few things, but the double-tap to click is nice.)
Thanks very much for answering my question. I've owned my macbook since Saturday and was really looking forward to using it but because I didn't even understand that simple little detail, I have been sent into a spin and even had to try and pretend I didn't have one. Now it is all much clearer and so much easier to use.
Thanks once again.
