Re: Possible to print from new Mac?

This works!
Thanks so much jibi ! You're awesome man!
Just some simple printing so far like an email and a jpeg to confirm color and it all works great.

Re: Possible to print from new Mac?

For Ventura, download the driver for Catalina. I'll assume it'll be downloaded to your Downloads folder. Do the following to install the driver and printer:

  • Open the downloaded Xerox_WorkCentre_6505.dmg to mount it as a volume
  • Run the following commands in Terminal:
    • $ cp /Volumes/Xerox\ WorkCentre\ 6505/6505\ Software\ Installer.pkg /tmp
    • $ cd /tmp
    • $ pkgutil --expand-full Downloads\6505\ Software\ Installer.pkg expanded
    • $ cd /tmp/expanded/installationfiles.pkg
    • $ sudo cp -a Payload/Library/* /Library
  • Now that the driver is installed, open Settings > Printers and Scanners then add the printer and select the Xerox WorkCentre 6505 driver from the list

Daedalus,

This won't work for everyone, but I ended up setting up a remote print server on a Linux box and printing through that.

Re: Possible to print from new Mac?

Hello pwellner,

The last driver we have for that device is the macOS 10.15.

Thanks,

Possible to print from new Mac?

Product Name: WorkCentre 6505
Operating System: macOS 12 - Monterey

Is it possible to print to a WorkCentre 6505DN over the network from a new Mac (running MacOs Ventura 13.1)?

Should I try install an older Mac driver (if som which one?), or does there exist a newer "universal" driver for new Macs?  Thank you
