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 you computer connected to your route via an ethernet cable? If it is, check the port on the router to see if the connection light is glowing. Next, check you network settings and set the "Configure IP Address" to be "Using DHCP". This will also the router to allocate an IP address and settings to computer.

I just installed snow leopard for mac and now my computer won't print using my Samsung SCX 4521F printer


I am glad to HELP YOU!

This is a common issue for the people who use printers/scanners made for Windows platforms on Mac OSX platforms...
I took a look at the User Manual from Samsung's site. It lists the printer Emulation as SPL (Samsung Printer Language). I'd do a try with the samsung-gdi drivers from linuxprinting.org [HERE]. Be sure to install ESP Ghostscript also. I think the PPDs in that download are pretty much all the same. You might want to try a couple of them if the first choice doesn't get anything from the printer.

If that works, then it might be possible to alter the 4521F PPD. Sometimes that doesn't work as well as one might think. There are frequently limitations in the driver. The Samsung supplied PPD may fail in some or all circumstances.
Also, the support page of Samsung [related to printers & co.] is HERE.

GOOD LUCK!

Installed mac osx 10.6.1 and my fuji wont print HELP!


Some manufacturers have not caught up and updated their drivers for snow leopard yet.  You gots ta be patient and wait a couple months or call the manufacturer and ask for a comparable driver that will run off snow leopard. Go back to the previous OS if that was working your printer.  Don't fix it if it ain't broke.
