If the printer is not included in the built-in printers list of whatever operating system you are using then go to the manufacturer's web site and search for drivers. You may also have success with Google, with a search for "Deskjet 1000 WIndows 98 Drivers" without the quotes and fill in the proper model of printer and operating system.

For more help here please list your printer model and operating system here and perhaps someone here can provide more specific help.

Missing printer driver settings and/or features on Leopard.


If your output is faint or if the driver settings and/or features are missing, your system may have automatically added the printer using the Gutenprint driver. Many printer drivers are provided with Leopard but some drivers may need to be downloaded from the manufacturers website.

support.epson.com
www.hp.com
www.canon.com
support.lexmark.com
www.brother.com


Determine Which Driver is Currently Being Used

1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.

2. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.

3. In the list of printers on the left side of the Print & Fax window, click once on your printer to select it.

4. Check the name of the driver being used; it is displayed in the center of the Print & Fax window next to “Kind”.

5. If the driver name displayed next to “Kind” is Gutenprint, the incorrect driver is being used. Follow the steps in the next section to select the correct driver.


Selecting the Correct Driver

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Delete the print queue and remove the printer from Print & Fax by clicking on the minus (-) button under the list of printers. Click OK to confirm the removal.

3. Go to the manufacturers website and select your printer or All-in-One model from the appropriate list.

4. After selecting your Printer or All-in-One, the web page will either confirm that the correct driver is provided with Leopard or give you a description and download option for the correct driver for your printer.

5. If the driver for you model is included in Leopard, skip to step 6. Otherwise, download and install the Leopard driver before continuing with step 6.

6. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.

7. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.

8. Turn on the printer. The system should add the printer automatically.

9. If the printer driver for your model is included in Leopard (not downloaded from the manufacturers website) and the system does not add the printer or if it adds it using the Gutenprint driver, contact Apple for assistance. You may need to reinstall the drivers provided with Leopard.
