Olá Hugo,

Follow this one and you should be OK.

It seems that Apple as made a few changes that require the manufacturers to change drivers. This will take time.

Sorry, forgot to post the link for the PPD. Here it is. I'm assuming that your printer has Postscript. If not, let me know and I give you other solution.

Hi Hugo, The error shows that you are still using the xerox driver and not only the PPD. When you create a printer and set the IP, the last field is "Use". Please make sure you chose "other" and point it to the PPD file you downloaded. I can't post a screenshot now because I'm on holidays and far from home, sorry. Give a try and let me now. Regards Rui

Well, could be the PPD. Go to my first post above, go to the link and download the PPD for the other model. This is just a test only to check if is a ppd problem. Regards Rui

I tested ppd but i think that problem is caused by filters and pde's. They're incompatible with 10.8

Re: MacOsX Mountain Lion (10.8) and Workcentre 4150

What was the result of the other PPD test? When a printer is created with a PPD, there is no drivers from the manufacture involved. This way the postscript engine used is the one from Apple. That is why the errors you are getting are very strange and could be a problem in your Mac. Regards Rui
