    Hello again! 
    Firstly, thank you very much for your help.

    2 days ago, i have installed the driver and done all these instructions and my dc12 works and prints properly!

    BUT, i don't have (or at least i can't find it in my mac) the software where from i can make settings for my printer. For example, paper weight, paper source, type of paper etc. I mean, shouldn't the driver have a program from which you can make all these settings?

    thanx again!!!

    What DFE do you have attached to the DC12?

    Is it a Splash or Fiery

    Fiery EX12, X12e, X12, XP12

    Splash G610,620,630,640


    Let me know I may have a work around for you that may work.

Here is the link to the site where you can download the driver for you DC12 the first one in the list is specifically for an Intel Mac (which is what you need)

NOTE: You may receive inconsistent output if your DC12 is NOT at system software version 1.5 SP2, however it will still work.

I have also included the instructions on how to add the printer to your Mac 10.5 OS

See below:

These instructions assume that TCP/IP is configured on the Macintosh and on the printer. If the printer does not have an IP address, contact your System Administrator to provide one, or to perform this solution if you do not have rights to install a print driver.
This solution assumes that the correct print driver for this product and the operating system being used has been downloaded and extracted to a known location on the hard drive. If necessary, click on the [Drivers & Downloads] link under the Product Resources section on this window to download a print driver.
To install the print driver:

  1. Browse to the location of the downloaded print driver.
  2. Double-click on the driver file. The contents of the file will be displayed.
  3. Double-click on the [Print Driver] folder. The contents of the folder will be displayed.
  4. Double-click on [OSX Installer]. The Authenticate window will be displayed.

    NOTE:A warning message may be displayed that states “OSX Installer is an application downloaded from the Internet.” Click [Open] to open the installer and continue.

  5. Enter the username and password in the fields provided, and then click [OK]. The Software License Agreement window will be displayed.
  6. Read the agreement, and then click on [Accept] to continue. The OSX Installer window will be displayed.
  7. Click on [Install]. The driver will install. When the installation is complete, an ‘Installation was successful’ message will be displayed.

    NOTE: A Select Printer Version to Install window may be displayed. Click [Fast] to continue the install. When the installation is complete, an "Installation was successful" message will be displayed.

  8. Click on [Quit] to complete the installation.
To add the printer:
  1. Click on the [Apple] icon in the upper left corner of the toolbar, and then select [System Preferences] from the menu. The System Preferences window will be displayed.
  2. Double-click on [Print and Fax] folder. The Print and Fax window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [+] button located on the left side of the window below the Printersfield. A new window will be displayed.
  4. Click on the [IP] icon at the top of the window, and then select [Line Printer Daemon - LPD] from the Protocol pull-down menu.
  5. Enter the IP address of the printer in the Address field.
  6. Enter a queue name of Print, Hold, or Direct in the Queue field. The queue name must be entered in lower case letters.
  7. If necessary, enter a name for the printer in the Namefield.
  8. Select [Select a driver to use…] from the Print Using menu. A list of printer models will be displayed.
  9. Select the correct printer model from the list, and then click on [Add]. The Installable Options list will be displayed.
  10. Select the installable options that are present on the printer, and then click on [Continue]. The printer will be displayed in the Printer List field.

    NOTE:If you are not sure what the options are, contact your System Administrator.

    The default printer is indicated in the Printer List field. The last printer added will automatically be the default unless otherwise changed.

  11. Click on the red [X] button in the upper, left corner to close the Print and Fax window and return to the desktop.
I hope this gets you where you need to be with your DC12. :o)

I have and I mac and I cannot run any exe files!!

Files with the suffix ".exe" are executable only under the Windows operating system. If you have an Intel iMac you can run Parallels software and actually install Windows side by side with the Mac OS and then be able to run ".exe" files in their native environment. Generally, downloadable program files for Macintosh have a ".dmg" suffix which is a disk image file which contains the actual program. After mounting the disk image on the desktop (by double-clicking) you can then copy the program file inside it directly to your hard drive via click&drag and then run it from the hard drive.

Sounds like you may have some permissions issues - I would suggest sticking in the OS disc that came with your iMac, restarting, and holding the "C" key when you hear the chime - this will make it boot off the CD. Once booted from it, go to Tools->Disk Utility, choose your disk, and do "Repair Permissions". Once that is done, you can quit the installer and restart. If that doesn't work, the next step I would recommend is running DiskWarrior, which is $99 - this is like an industrial permissions/hard drive directory repair disc, used by many professionals. If that doesn't solve it, you will likely have to back up your user data and do a fresh install of the OS from the discs you have. Good luck!
