SOURCE: linux

Sharp doesn't support Linux. Only Windows and Apple. You will have to try a generic Linux print driver to get it to operate.

He said your printer would work if you just had the internet on??
If that's true, I would get rid of that guy/company as fast as possible, find someone else to take your contract, or pay time and materials.....If he is trying to pull that, I can only imagine how much he's screwing you in other ways.
If he supplied it, how did he get away with not setting it up, and what was his reply when you told him it wasn't working? Run away.

SOURCE: Printing by SHARP AR M161 on Mac 9.2.2.

Go to printer setup and click on new printer. You should get a long list of printers. Hopefully yours is on the list. Click on the printer name and you will be presented with several drivers. Choose the one that is the best for you. Before you exit print a test page. Give the printer a name.
If this does not work you will have to install the windows driver. This is only possible If your Mac can run windows software.

Is the Sharp arm205 networkable?

It requires an optional AR-NB2N network box that fits on the back of the machine and plugs into the USB of the copier. It will be obvious and clearly labeled if it is there.
