Printing twice - Yocemite 10.10

Hi

 

since the upgrade Yosemite, we had to reinstall the drivers for DocuColor 240 ( with great difficulty , of course). But now, when printing, the job is sent twice, the first sheet is a list of XML and second sheet the printing requested. For 100, 100 sheets of boring xml ... Problem disapears when I drag and drop the file (doc, pdf, etc. ) into the CommandWorstation... Is anyone already encountered this sorcery ?

 

Thank you in advance for help

Re: Printing twice - Yocemite 10.10

The 240/250 is long out of development, and EFI (The makers of the Fiery) don't make drivers for it any more.

Xerox.com is no longer updated as EFI distributes the drivers on their own.

Your best bet is to go to http://www.efi.com/ and grab the drivers from them, but pick the one for the 242-252-260 instead.

It should work just fine minus bi-directional communication (Apple broke Bi-di)

 

Be aware you must run the Fiery uninstaller application that comes with the driver and remove any EFI driver previous to installing the new one.

 

And make absolutely certain you don't install a share driver, or one with Bonjour/Appletalk, create the port as either LPD with a queue name of "print" or "hold", or use HP Jet direct
