Question: How can I use my Dell printer 1100 with my Mac

I have an older Dell 1100 printer I used before I got my Mac. Is there anyway I can continue to use this printer with my Mac OS X Mountain Lion?

Dell's OS X support is practically nonexistent and you may be out of luck. The most information I was able to supply for that printer can be found in this old post whose links are now broken.

At the time, research indicated the following Samsung driver would work, but the OP never responded so a resolution was never reached.

Go to Samsung's web page:

Click "manuals and downloads", then "driver". You will see one for OS X 10.3 - 10.7, which if true should work with Mountain Lion and may be compatible with your Dell 1100. The downloaded file is a fairly ancient self-uncompressing type, which does not bode well for success.

Hi everybody,

I have done the installation as explained above (with Samsung Driver) and I am quite sure that it worked. But since Friday (maybe there has been an update performed) I loose 1 or 2 inches of the top of my document, no matter which software does the print (LibreOffice or Word).

Does anybody have an idea ?

Hello, I tried every single driver I could find, but then I used my common sense. I too own a wonderful Dell 1110 laser printer, and I'm using MAC OS 10.11.6 El Capitan. I just went to the Dell printer website and downloaded any driver for a laser jet printer that works with MAC OS 10, and it worked!!!!!!! Here's the name of the driver I used; Dell 1130 Mono Printer Installer and downloaded the driver for MAC. Click on the download. Good luck!User uploaded file /drivers
