From mac leopard cannot print duplex on minolta qms 3100 printer

I am a mac beginner. I have Leopard 10.5.6. I placed the printer PPD file in Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/en.lproj and then, from system preferences: print and fax, I installed the printer using Protocol: LPD, Address: printer's IP, Queue: ps. The driver appeared in the list and I selected it. I can print but cannot find any properties to set duplex mode.

Hello, sorry you are having problems,
OK, are you sure your printer supports duplex printing and if you are sure you have the right driver installed, this is how you print in duplex mode on a Mac.
Open the document you want to print, Hit cmd+p to get the print dialogue window you should see this: From mac leopard cannot print duplex on minolta qm - 46da167.png

Notice you have the option of two sided printing in the same line as # of copies.
If you do not have this option in 10.5.6, then you might have the wrong driver, N.B. you must be sure to select the proper driver when you are creating the printer in the Print and Fax preference. Another way to ensure you have the driver properly installed, go to the manufacturer's website and download the Mac Driver Installer and run the installer, delete the printer you created and then re-create the printer again it should auto-recognize the printer..
What is the Printer Make and Model?

Is there a printer driver for a Dell 5110cn colour printer for the mac OSX snow leopard


Delete your old Dell printer in the Print & Fax System Preferences panel. Install a new printer, but select the Mac-installed Samsung CLP-770 Series PS, and presto! You are back in business, complete with duplex printing and toner supply levels. Sweet!

WE are looking for a Mac driver for the konica c350 that will work with leopard. Thanks


To save space, drivers are not a part of the package unless you have the printer connected when you install leopard. If you go backwards and either update or re-install leopard it should install the driver for you.

Elite 20/600 not working with Snow Leopard


Snow Leopard broke Appletalk which is how many people connected a GCC printer to their Macs. You must reconfigure to LPD in the print and fax control panel and everything works fine. If you have difficulties please email jstrauss@gccprinters.com as we do not have this posted to the Web yet.

Problems printing on c250 from mac leopard


Have you tried hiding the Doc in the finder?

Some programs will print VERY slowly s the application icon is showing while printing.

Are you using a Fiery? If so, have you installed the CUPS filter from their website? www.efi.com

The lates Mac OS has totally redone the way they communicate with printers and how they handle security communications.
Start looking in the Mac webpage for fixes or solutions, it is a system based issue from Mac.
