Double sided is no longer an option with mac os 10.5.4

I have a new computer with mac os 10.5.4. Previously I was able to print double sided but now the button to choose double sided is disabled. I've gone to the ricoh website and downloaded the latest driver but still nothing.

    I went to the Ricoh site and downloaded the driver for Mac OS X v10.5 or later which calls it a PPD Installer Ver.1.0.0a

    Which drivers are you using for the copier? Are they PCL or Postscript?

Go into the advanced settings of the driver and look for the settings that tell the copier what features you have. Make sure the duplex is turned on. Normally I set these up for Windows use and I have one client who uses a Mac and he did show me that the features do exist for the print driver.

Once it is enabled the double sided printer feature should work.

Duplex printing in HP 2420dn on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4


According to the specs, this printer does not have a duplex unit and therefore cannot print double sided prints.
DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

How to connect iomega ego blackbelt 3.0 to mack and change the partition


Mac decided not to go with USB 3.0 so you will have to use the USB 2.0 Y cable.
Using the USB Y cable. Plug the cable into the device first, then make sure to plug both USB's in to the computer starting with the short side USB then the longer side USB second. Also try using the USB's on the back side of the computer.
Formatting with Mac OS X, version 10.5 or above. 1. Make sure you have copied any needed files to another location. 2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility 3. In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega Hard Drive. Make sure you click on the high level icon, not the second level volume icon. 4. Select the Partition tab. 5. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition. 6. Select the format type from the Format drop-down menu. Select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (recommended) or Mac OS Extended. 7. Click on the Options button. 8. Select the type of partition you want to use: GUID Partition Table - for boot ability on Intel-based Macs Apple Partition Map - for boot ability on PowerPC-based Macs Master Boot Record - if you will use the drive on a PC as well as your Mac. Use this option ONLY if you selected PC-DOS as the format type. CAUTION! In most cases, the computer will fail to format the drive as a Mac OS Extended (HFS+) partition using Master Boot Record. For best results, always choose GUID Partition Table (Intel) or Apple Partition Map (PowerPC). 9. Click OK. 10. Click Apply (10.5-10.6) or Partition (10.4). The drive is ready to use when the format completes.

I am unable to print double-sided. the option is available in 'print options' but i cannot select it. (im using Mac OS X 10.5) thanks!


If the printer is DUPLEX it can turn the paper and do the whole magic automatically. You probably DON'T have a duplex attachment so you'll have to manually have to turn the paper after its printed. When you print, select the option to print only even pages, print, put the printed paper back in and print the odd pages. You may have to try it a couple times before you get it right.... Good luck.

Print Queue is stuck on


This is old, but I will post my solution for anyone else who might be having this problem.
In Mac OS 10.5: Go to System Preferences under the "apple logo" menu. Then select the "Print & Fax" module. Select your printer from the list on the left, and then click the "Open Print Queue…" button. Select the job(s) you want to cancel, and click the Delete button.
In older Mac OS 10: Go to the Utilities folder in your Applications folder, and open the "Printer Setup Utility". Double click your printer in the list. Then it is the same as above: select the job(s) you want to cancel, and click the Delete button.

EPSON 1800 PROBLEMS WITH NEW IMAC


While you may have installed it, the generic driver may be selected. Here are all the steps to get you back up.

To remove any previous Epson printer driver files and get a good working install of the latest download for the Intel Duo Core, do the following:
REMOVE FILES
1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.
5. Close any open windows.
6. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
7. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
8. Double click on the RECEIPTS folder.
9. Delete any "Epson" receipts. Close back to desktop.
10. Open the OS X "Printer Setup Utility".
11. Select the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the top of your screen and click "Reset Printing System...". Confirm resetting.
12. Close all open windows and restart your computer.
DOWNLOAD
If you have not done so already, use the following steps to obtain the download for the new Intel Duo Core driver:
1. Go to http://support.epson.com
2. Select Printers then Inkjet then your printer model.
3. Under "Drivers and Downloads" select Macintosh.
4. Download only the driver marked for the Intel Duo Core system.
Printer Driver v3.0aAs
Intel-based Macs with OS X (v10.4.4 or later)
epson11769.dmg - 12.4MB - posted on 02/06/06
Installation instructions:
1. Double-click on the "epson11769.dmg" file and follow prompts to create an "epson11769_r1800_printer_driver_30aas" disk image on your desktop.
2. Open the disk image. Double-click the "SPR1800Series 30a" installer icon to begin the installation.
3. Follow prompts to complete installation. Restart Mac once the install is complete.
Do the following to add the printer once the new downloadable Intel Duo Core driver has been downloaded and installed properly:
1. Connect printer.
2. Open Printer Setup Utility.
3. Click ADD.
4. Ensure you are on the Default Browser window.
5. Highlight printer as it appears under Printer Name.
6. For "Print Using" select "Epson Stylus R1800" if this automatically appears on the list. If this does not appear, select OTHER (not "Epson" - which links you to GIMP drivers, which we don't recommend or support). NOTE: if you are using a firewire connection, the printer name may appear as a letter only - ie "E" for "Epson". This is normal.
7. A new window opens where you can Browse to the hard drive location of:
HD > Library > Printers > Epson > Inkjet Printers
(This location contains all the Intel Duo Core Epson driver plugins, be they resident or downloaded.)
8. Highlight/Select the plugin for your printer model in the Inkjet Printers folder, then click OPEN.
9. Use the up/down arrows at the end of "Print Using" again to (re)select the printer's name, which will now appear at the TOP of the "Print Using" list.
10. Click ADD. The new downloaded driver will now be added on the list.
11. If there are other printers on the list, ensure the Epson is made default before testing.
When you are working with a printer model which supports borderless and/or roll paper printing options, you will be able to select these options in the program you are printing from as you set up your print job.
1. Once you have an image or file open, go to File > Page Setup.
2. For "Format For" select the Epson printer name (rather than "Any Printer").
3. Select the appropriate Paper Size. If your printer supports different layout features, each paper size will have several different options. For example, the 4x6 paper size will have an arrow pointing right which offers choices of 4x6 Borderless, 4x6 Standard-Minimize Margins, etc. Pick the paper type plus layout/margin option you want to use here.
4. Click OK on Page Setup. You are now ready to print.

Setting HP OfficeJet 4315 print preferences on a MAC OS X


Whenever you send a file to print from a program a small window shows up. If it shows only
Printer: Drop down menu ARROW Presets: Drop down menu Some buttons at the bottom
then click on the ARROW pointing down for more options. That will show more info, including a drop down menu that will allow you to change page settings, printing settings, etc. For example, if you want to change the printing quality, select "Paper Type/Quality" from that drop down menu and new options will show up allowing you to change the settings of the printer.
