How to Get Your Lexmark X7100 Series Printer to Work with Leopard

If you are reading this, then you either obtained a Lexmark x7170 printer which does not seem to work with your Leopard OS or you upgraded to Leopard only to suffer numerous printing issues.

Don't toss your printer into the trash . . . it is possible to make your printer work with OSX Leopard and the following steps will help you achieve this.

The first thing you need to know is DO NOT use the drivers on the Lexmark CD or the ones you download from Lexmark's Web site. Instead, use the drivers that come on the Leopard DVD.

If you upgraded from 10.4, do the following first 4 steps in order to clean up the old driver first before installing the new one. (If you have a clean install, skip steps 2, 3, and 4).

1. Unplug the USB printer cable from your mac.
2. On the System Peferences menu, remove the printer queue clicking the "-" button on the Printes & Faxes dialog
3. Delete the Lexmark folder found in /Library/Printers (get rid of both the contents and folder itself)
4. Delete the file LexmarkUSBMerge.kext in /System/Library/Extensions

5. Insert the Leopard Installer DVD and click Optional Installs

6. Click Optional Install.mpkg

7. Go through the installation process. On the installation type, select
Printer Drivers and click Lexmark Printer Drivers. Click continue and
complete the installation process.

8. Reboot the system

9. Plug back the USB cable

10. Add the printer queue back (if not automatcially)

If the above procedure did not work for you, start over from the beginning but make sure to run a complete search and remove all instances of the
LexmarkUSBMerge.kext file. The procedures above should restore printing back for your Lexmark.

If you have any questions or comments, send them to

How do you print cue cards

Do you mean "how do you make cue cards?" because printing them is the same as printing anything else. And just to be clear, what do you mean by 'cue cards'?

Hello, i recently bought an airport card off of ebay and installed it in my G4 tower (mirrored drive doors). the OS has been upgraded to Leopard. I cannot get it to turn on. When I try to configure...

Hi Kathy
What message do you get? does it say anything like "Not airport card found" or something similar.
A couple of things to check. First make sue that the card itself is fully home in the socket. Second, make sure that the arial lead is properly connected. It is really easy to think that the arial is connected when it isn't. The plug is a very close fit. it should click into place and you should not be able to get a finger-nail between the plug body and the card - if you can it's not connected.
Failing that, the card may well be faulty - sometimes happens with eBay.

I get an error message when trying to print something ''an unknown error occurred while printing'' using firefox on MAC OS X 10.4

Does it do this with any other browser or just Firefox? Try another browser and that will tell you if it is just a setting problem in Firefox or not. If unable to print on any browser then hook the printer directly to the mac with a usb cable and try re-installing the printer.

Mac leopard -epson tx400 - printer grabs paper - printer very noisy, desk shakes with vibration - now the print on paper is faded help!!

Hello, sorry to hear you are having trouble,
So, are we to understand that your printer did not shake with vibrations and make a lot of noise before ?
Most of these ink jet printers have heads that travel very quickly and abruptly from side to side causing shaking and vibrations, especially if it is on a light weight desk or table, sometimes to the point of almost throwing itself right off the table. This is a normal state for the printer to be in.
Then, you say the paper is printed on, it goes right through to the end, no paper jam, but the colors are faded...
How often do you print on this printer ? Sometimes, the Epson print head dry up and only small amounts of ink get through even though the system indicates that the ink is full...
You can certainly perform a head cleaning operation, I recommend doing it several (3) times to be sure, unfortunately, it's a terrible wast of ink.
Finally, have you replace the ink cartridges? If you get a faded output with new cartridges, you may have inadvertently activated the ink saving or draft mode, go through you page set-up or printer option thoroughly.
I'm pretty sure something here will get you out of this mess.

Printer fails to print - error code -50

From System Preferences / Printers, delete the printer completely.
If you have the driver installer for the driver you are using, re-launch it and choose the "uninstall" option. If not, you will have to rip out a lot of code by hand -- you will have to search HP's website for the page on how to manually remove traces of old Mac HP drivers.
Download the latest driver for your printer from the HP website. Install if carefully.
After rebooting, go to System Preferences / Printers and re-define the printer. Make sure you use the HP driver, not any of the generic drivers.
This ought to clear the problem.

Leopard won't install

Found this on the net:

Those upgrade cards always have given me a problem with migrating to Leopard. If you can upgrade to a used G5 or even Intel basd mac you might be more happier with less hassle.
