I have an iMac running Mountain Lion and am trying to connect a HP Laserjet 1300N using USB. Mountain Lion is full updated includinh an HP printer driver update yesterday.


If I send something to print I get pages with a line of the at the top usualy containing the word Adobe which text is not part of the document I am printing.


I suspect it is some postscript information. Can anyone help please? Has anyone got this printer working with Mountain Lion?


Thanks in advance.



iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion

    I don't have that printer... What you're getting sounds like the driver is sending postscript to the printer but the printer isn't processing postscript. Does the printer have a front panel and a setting for turning postscript on and off?


    You can experiment and use the manually selected driver model "Generic PCL 5 or 6." This sends HP's standard PCL language commands to the printer instead of postscript.
