Bought a new macbook air and want to install my Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP. when connected via USB the printer prints. however if i use the set up assistant, the printer is not recognized. can not install...

Deleting the printer and then reinstalling it using the Gutenprint Drivers for the HP 1300 Series in the Add Printer pull down will allow you to print B/W. This works wirelessly over an Airport Extreme, so I assume that it will work wired. I am searching for a solution that prints in color. Amazing that HP and Apple seem content to orphan such a widely-used and relatively recent MFP.

I have a HP F380 All in One Deskjet Printer Mac OS 10.5.8 Printing for over 2 years using Airport Scanning I need to connect by usb Issue: I reset the settings and can't find the driver I used to...


Thanks for using Fixya.
First, Uninstall your HP F380 and then again reinstall it.

If your printer is connected via usb to airport extreme you will have to download and install the following.
1. espgs-7.07.1.ppc.dmg

2. hpijs-foomatic-2.0.2.ppc.dmg

Do this by going to The Linux Foundation (

Install in the order listed above, they both must be installed for this to work.

Then do the following:

1. Go to > system preferences > print & fax

2. Click "+" to add a printer

3. The HP F380 will be listed with the connection type "Bonjour"

4. Highlight this printer

5. At the bottom of the window you will see the option for "Print Using" and than you can choose something from the drop down menu.

6. Scroll down to "HP" and choose that

7. This now propagates a window full of HP printers including the HP F380 drivers that you installed above.

8. Scroll down until you see "HP F380 FOOTMATIC" and highlight this.

9. Click "add".

That's it, your done and it should work.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Help! my macbook OS10.6.2 will not let me print from my HP photosmart C3180 all-in-one printer.

You may need to install the updated printer driver for Snow Leopard. Go to the HP site:
Click the first link HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers - Mac OS X v10.6
On the subsequent page, click the download link, when prompted SAVE to your desktop or downloads folder. Then locate the downloaded file and doubleclick and run the setup. Once that's complete, go to System Preferences, click Print & Fax, click the + sign in the left column if you don't see your printer listed there. Follow the steps to add the printer.

Exactly what I'm experiencing, it goes though all the motions, but no ink is on the paper. I just installed 10.5.8 last night on my Mac Pro. The drivers are up to date, but no ink hits the paper.

Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470

turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)

I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.
