WorkCentre 7232 colour printing from Mac OS

Hello,

 

We have WorkCentre 7232 and have several Mac OS computers that need to use it.

We were able to print using the Generic PCL5 driver but it does not allow color printing.

 

I have installed the latest driver that was publushed on 24 Sept this week and have added the printer again with this driver.

Printing the test page let to no test page printed but many empty pages. It almost emptied the tray.

Could I ask why do you publish a driver if it doesn't work at all on Mac OS?

Is there a way to make it print color?

 

Kind regards,

Vi

It will cost money to make it compatible.

 

The 7232 was sold with the PS kit as an option, so it would seem you do not pay for the PS kit, and therefore can only send PCL, and they don't develop PCL drivers for MAC, just PS. Apple adds the Generic PCL driver to it's OS to allow only basic ability to get you by.

 

Of course Mac/Linux gurus have made their own Color PCL drivers for CUPS, which is how Unix/Linux/OSX does print, and I know this method works with Xerox and Konica (and probably more)
