Network printing problem

We've just unpacked our new printer and set it up; the computers in the office are Macs but the network is PC. We can't install the driver here/locally because it won't translate Mac. Any ideas? help?

I used the Gutenprint driver for the Ricoh 220. It seems to be working fine.

SOURCE: Mac OSX 10.4.11 won't print to Ricoh Aficio CL2000n network printer

As an update:

I actually had a Ricoh tech come out to my house. It was a warranty service - I was very impressed! He did some fiddling around, said that there was no problem that he could detect but... after he left the Macs can print to the printer no problem. From what I can recall, all of the settings were identical to what they were in the first place on the Mac side.

I still can't get my linux machine to print there but it is a low priority and I am really not trying very hard.

I wish I had more enlightening input.

SOURCE: Need help setting up printer on a network

Set a compatible IP address on machine:
"user tools"
"system settings"
"interface settings"
"IP address" (set compatible number)
"subnet mask" (set the right one)

Download driver if it's not done already, create the matching tcp/ip port, and continue with installation. Select "share this printer".

Driver is here if you need it:

SOURCE: Ricoh Adicio on a mac

You'll need to download and Install the "PPD" installer for your Mac OSx here, if you haven't already done so:
..... then (assuming that your Copier doesn't have Postscript installed - most don't) browse for the printer, but be sure to select the driver version that points to "pxl", and not a "ps", or "pcl" driver. "PXL" is the only language that will work with Mac if postscript is not installed on the machine.
Good Luck. Please rate me.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an RICOH Aficio

Hi there. When you installed the drivers locally to each computer, you should be given the option to select the device as the default printer. I understand that you have not chosen this during your installation process. The best options would be to either install this driver on the server and/or use a logon script to set as the user's default printer upon each log on to their computers.

Can not print with canon mx 870 using a ipad

The airprint system is not yet compatible with all printers. Were you told that you could print to this printer from your iPad?
There is a piece of software for Macs that allows any printer to print from an iPad or iPhone 4 called Printopia 2. I've been using it to print to an Epson A3 printer and a Canon A4.

How can I get my Windows PC to see my printer(s) on my Mac OS X network?

I am sure this question has arisen more than once, as to just how to locate and use the network printer in your Mac OS X network,so you can print from your Windows PC. After all, the Macs you have in your network print with no problem, why not the PC?

But nothing seems to work, that you have tried. So what to do?

Well, the answer comes with a simple yet very effective technology implemented by Apple Inc., just to address this issue.

It is a zero configuration networking protocol known as Bonjour.

Bonjour formerly known as Rendevous, was implemented from the Zeroconf (Zero-configuration) service delivery protocol and first introduced by Apple in its software with the release of the Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar system.

In lay terms, what "Zero Configuration Networking" means to you, is that you do not have to be computer geek or guru, to simply install or configure this software, because it was designed for the most part to automatically discover computers, devices, and services on local IP networks.

The "local IP network" being described here, is your own network, whether it is in your home, home office or anywhere you have a network setup.

What makes Bonjour so efficient, is that it can work with PCs in order to work with devices connected to Macs. To use it, all you need to do is install the software to your PC. Macs with Mac OS X versions from 10.2 to 10.6, of course, already have Bonjour as a built in feature.
So how do I use Bonjour to discover printers on my Windows PC(s)?

It really is a simple as 1 -2-3.

1.) Download Bonjour - You can simply search for it by name through
Google or your favorite web search engine, or
click the link below to install in on your PC.
Download and Install Bonjour for Windows

2.) Install Bonjour - Simple enough, install it once the download is
complete. In the example below, I use my Epson
NX415 printer as a network printer on a Mac OS X
network, that needs to be discovered by a Toshiba
Laptop with Windows Vista Sp2 also a part of that


3.) Launch Bonjour to discover the printer(s) in your network -

a.) Introduction Screen:

You will be very satisfied when you see how little
effort you have to put into discovering the network
printer on your PC with the Bonjour Printer Wizard.

**Note: Keep in mind, the network printer must be properly
connected, turned on and functional, otherwise Bonjour
will not discover your networked printer with your PC.**


b.) Printer Discovered:

Printer in Mac OS X network, if working and turned
on... Should be discovered by Bonjour right away..


c.) Printer Driver not needed:

A really nice feature with Bonjour:
You really don't need to have the print driver software for the
discovered printer. Bonjour will identify the printer, its
location on the Mac OS X network and will use a
Generic/Postscript identity due to a print driver for the
PC not being needed.


d.) Summary of discovered network printer:

Final screen for the Bonjour Printer Wizard. Just click
the Finish button and that is all it should take.

Now open any document run a test print..
on and get to printing with the newly discovered
Mac OS X network printer on your PC.

Now, that you know, no more guessing, on how to find
that elusive Mac OS X network printer for your PC.

Happy Printing!

Trying to connect 4 MACs to all in one Kodak 5250 printer and will not connect via wireless. I had to set up so that the other pc's have to print from one location via hardwire. I tried installing...

If you have one PC connected to the printer via USB you can share the printer to your Mac computers easily:
If the printer is connected to a Macintosh computer via USB:
1) Open System Preferences
2) Click on Print and Fax
3) Highlight the Printer and Check the box Marked "Share This Printer On The Network"

If the printer is connected to a windows computer via USB:
1) Download "Bonjour Print Services for Windows" from Apple's website
2) Install it on the PC connected to the Printer.
3) After Installing the Above, Run the Bonjour Printer Configuration Utility and select the Printer you want to share and it will share it over the network to all your apple devices.

You should update your printers firmware and reload both Mac and windows drivers for the same printer. I look at this as more of a driver problem. Firmware and drivers can be located here. If problem persists, try to approach this instance by using the elimination method. remove pc from network, test with only macs connected. then remove macs and test with only PC connected. then finnaly, install this printer directly to pc and test the performance and then directly on one of the macs and test.

Xerox Phaser 8560DP shows annoying 'print completion' message

Someone installed the "Printing Scout" on this computer. You may need to uninstall or check all the settings in the printer driver. I'm not really familiar with Macs but I know the 8560 inside out, upside down, and backwards.
