Driver for lexmark x1270 for mac


Hi,

Your Lexmark X1270 printer was designed for rosoft Windows 2000; Microsoft Windows XP; Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64; Microsoft Windows Vista; Microsoft Windows Vista x64; and Microsoft Windows 7 as it is indicated in its webpage. Remember, drivers and softwares are always limited from the manufacturer's releases. I recommend that you upgrade your printer to a Mac compatible printer. You may choose from this LINK.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Is the Dell A940 compatible with imac computers?


Hello there!

As i know dell printers dont offer you ability to use them with mac computers, but i know that you could use your printer as a server from some windows os pc, and connect it with your imac computer, if you are able to do that here you go, detail instruction will be provided for you in next text lines.

This document gives a detailed explanation of how to set up an HP DeskJet 722C printer that is attached to a Windows XP computer so that the printer can be used by a Mac OS X computer on a local area network (LAN). If your printer is slightly different, or you have a different version of Windows, or you're using a different Unix than Mac OS X, you'll have to adapt these instructions with your own creativity.
Be aware that these procedures may not be necessary at all if the printer you have has Mac drivers, and other Microsoft incantations are working properly. You may be able to get off easy, but then, you probably wouldn't be searching the Internet looking for these instructions. Your mileage may vary.
Thanks to the detailed directions at http://pnm2ppa.sourceforge.net/PPA_networking/PPA_networking-4.html which gave me most of the information I needed to make these detailed instructions.
The process falls into these five general steps:
  1. On Windows: Make sure you have a working printer set up on your Windows XP computer (this is not covered here).
  2. On Windows: Install the software needed to emulate a Postscript printer and redirect printing ports
  3. On Windows: Set up an emulated Postscript printer on Windows XP that will actually print to the (probably non-Postscript) printer set up in step one.
  4. On Windows: Set up Unix LPR Printer Services on Windows XP that will point to the emulated Postscript printer in step three that in turn points to the real printer in step one.
  5. On Mac OS X: Set up an LPR over IP printer in Mac OS X pointing to your Windows XP computer.
What follows are some email messages that people have sent me about some problem they overcame that I did not encounter. I'm sorry I cannot "boil down" their advice, because I no longer have a PC, but here is what they have to say.

Is the lexmark x1150 printer compatible with any computer. I have a hewlett packard


Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

Need to install Lexmark X4550 but only have MAC disc am on vista


Are you trying to install the Lexmark X4550 to your Mac computer? What is the exact OS of your Mac (i.e 10.3.x; 10.4.x or 10.5.x)?

You have to make sure that the pinter is compatible with the OS that you have.

I don't have a doubt with the printer since you mentioned that it worked with XP. To install the printer to your Mac, please follow the steps below:

If your printer does not appear in the Printer pop-up menu, find and install the appropriate driver. Check any CD-ROM discs included with the printer, or the website of your printer's manufacturer. Only users with an administrator account can install software.

Tip: You can also open the Printer List window from Printer Center (Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier) or the Printer Setup Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, or later).

Check the Printer menu again after installing the software. If the printer does not appear, you may need to do this:
  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your computer, plugged in, and turned on.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier, from the Printer menu in the print dialog choose Edit Printer List. The Printer List window appears.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.3 or later, choose Show Printer List from the View menu. The Printer List window appears.
  4. Click the Add Printer button.
  5. Choose USB from the first pop-up menu.
  6. Select your printer from the list.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Close the Printer List window.
If the printer will not work, you may download the driver from the Web and install it. Here, I have provided you the link where you can download the printer driver:

http://www.findmysoft.com/drivers/Lexmark-X4550-1-0-11-1-printer-driver.html

Just click the download button and install it.

Have a great day!

Hi I used the link that you provided and entered the Z33 lexmark printer but the 2nd page requires the following and it does not have an option for Windows Vista which I am using Select Your Operating...


Choose the XP drivers, they should still work if Vista ones are not available. If they do not, then Lexmark will not be making drivers forward for that model of printer and it'll be time to go get a new inexpensive inkjet.
