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 geekmaker@hotmail.com

Mac os x updates dont work when i try to go from osx 10.5.8 to osx 10.6.1


If you currently have 10.5.8 on your machine this is the highest update that you can have if you have system 10.5. To upgrade to 10.6.1 you will have to buy 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and upgrade 10.5.8 to 10.6 then you will be able to run system upgrade to 10.6.8.

If you are running the drivers included in the Mac OSX, you won't have levels. These are generic/running drivers only.
Hit this Epson site for current drivers.

Repairing OS 9.2.1 on iMacG4


Maybe your OS 9.2.1 doesn't need to be repaired. Actually you need to update it to MacOS 9.2.2 which is the LAST Classic update. For the record, to repair your System 9 install, you need to reboot to Classic. A simple question, Why on earth are you still in need to run Classic?

Lg ge20 and mac notebook


Is it compatible with OS 9 or OS X? If you have OS X and your disc is for OS 9 it won't work unless you have Classic installed and running. But it doesn't sound like you have Classic because I believe it would have tried to install in there by now on it's own. So when software says it is Mac compatible I always check further to see if it works with OS 9 or OS X.

EMac Screen Resolution


Hi Loteck,

In my other life, I do computer support for a major metropolitan school district. We've had quite a few eMacs that have been coming in with bad displays. We don't even try to fix them any more. They get the Airport cards, CD drives and any other spare parts like RAM upgrades pulled, then get recycled.

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but with most technology, there comes a time when fixing it isn't worth the trouble, unless it's your hobby. I wish you good luck and a better answer if it exists.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,

Jon

Problem getting the Ricoh Aficio CL12000N Printer to print files


Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Ok, well, that sounds to me like you have a new version of Adobe Acrobat. And, well, the new version of Acrobat works with more and more options and bigger and more complex documents.... And.... well, your G3 and the Ricoh printer just can't handle these files.
So, what is the solution other than buying a new computer and a new printer, which would certainly solve your problem, ?
What I recommend is print pdf files as images, you will find this option in the print dialogue box, unfortunately, i don't have access to a Mac OS 9 machine to take snapshots to show you, but, if you snoop around the print dialogue options, I'm sure you'll find ( Print as Image ) and that feature really reduces the weight of the image you are sending to the printer.

Emac ethernet


An update would not prevent the machine from accessing a server, unless other changes in the machine configuration was made. If you are running Tiger (10.4) go tot he apple on the top left, 4 lines down is SYSTEM PREFERENCES. Under INTERNET & NETWORK, you want to select NETWORK. Location should be AUTOMATIC and SHOW should be NETWORK STATUS. From there you should see all the connections in the list below. Next to BUILT IN ETHERNET you should see a color dot either red green or yellow. If the dot is red but there is a cable there, then the cable has gone bad. If the dot is yellow and the cable is in the port, then your computer detects an acgtive signal but your configuration is incorrect, like your ip address is being used by another machine, If the dot is green, then your machine recognizes a stable and active signal. YOu may need to just reset your tcp/ip settings. There are a few more options like unplugging you router for a few seconds, or puling out the ethernet cable from the computer and re-inserting it.


Hope this help
