Dell 946 incompatible with Mac

I know that Dell printer drivers are for Windows systems, but are there any generic drivers I can use to hook my Mac up to a Dell 946 all-in-one printer? I've read that some Lexmark drivers may work, but I haven't found one yet.

    Ditto, I have the same printer and it would be great to be able to hook it up to the Mac.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    yup i got the same problem, i think its a disease that all dell 900 printers have. we could sign a petition for them to make a mac driver for the AIO printers, or just boycott dell printers. they're limiting their market!

  • mtbav8r Feb 23, 2009

    Well, it looks like I've joined an ever expanding club. My Dell just bit the big one, so I bought an iMac. It seems to recognize my Dell 946 printer, but it stops there.

Can you print to a Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet


Dell does not have Mac drivers for this printer. Your Dell printer was made by Lexmark and if you can find a similar printer on Lexmark’s website, it might or might not work. You can also try Gutenprint for Mac OS X which may or may not work.
