Alternatively, if your printer supports Apple AirPrint, you do not need a driver to print from your Mac or iOS device. For more information, go to About AirPrint (in English). Installing the driver in macOS or OS X 10.7 and later. El Capitan, Yosemite, and Mavericks (in English). RE: Printer Driver for Mac OS X 10.11 You don't know if new drivers for El Capitan (10.11) are being developed? I see there are several inquiries as to when drivers for all Dell printers are going to be available for the latest Mac OS.
Hi and thanks. I think it is a matter of how the printer actually runs on AirPrint. It only functions as an AirPrint printer with the proper drivers installed is I keep the printer plugged into my computer and others can share it.
The minute I unplug it from my computer, I have to plug it into my Airport Extreme so that others can see but with a generic printer driver. So it really doesn't do what it says on the box. Rather disappointing as I thought HP was better than this. Anyway, here is the post I put on the Apple Communities. No comment so I would imagine that there isn't much penetration in the Mac market. I can live with it. Maybe the next Max OS will sort it all out.
Unable to open DMG files - “Corrupt Image”. Recover data from a corrupt truecrypt encrypted partiton. Trying to restore a Mac OS X system from DMG file. Some Mac users have discovered they are unable to open some applications downloaded from the Mac App Store. When attempting to open an impacted app in OS X, a message stating “Name.app is damaged and can’t be opened. Delete Name.app and download it again from the App Store.” Another variation. How to Fix a Mac Application That's Not Starting? Versions of OS X is the file permissions being set incorrectly. Files can become corrupt when your Mac shuts. Also, prior to that message, I get a message that Safari can’t open the file “Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 v15.13.3.zip” because the file is still being downloaded. I am so confused, can you please help me, thanks! If you can't find the zip file or it has been deleted, turn to a data retrieval program. We had a review of the Mac data recovery software in 2017. Get one that supports zip archive and give it a try.
Fingers crossed. 'Just finished a long chat.
Apparently you are only supposed to get generic drivers with AirPrint which is weird because 1. It is sold as an AirPrint printer so you would think the drivers would install and 2. The correct AirPrint drivers are installed if I plug in the printer to my Mac which really means that it isn't on AirPrint but just shared from computer over my wireless network. Sounds like a bug to me. The worrisome thing is that the HP User Guide states that some features will be disabled with a generic drive. They don't say which ones.
My Canon Deskjet installs the correct drivers as did my old HP P2015d when plugged into my AirPort Extreme. So I did some playing around.
If I plug the printer into my Mac via USB and printer sharing, it loads the correct driver. It is then recognised by other Macs on my wireless network but two printer options. One loads the correct driver and the other loads a driver not related to the printer at all. Still tempted to take the printer back as it doesn't really do what it says it does on the box.
May just wait for the next OS X where is might be fixed. But it is a pain because I have to keep the printer plugged into my MacBook Pro and can't no wandering or leave the house. However I do have an old MacMini which I have set up as a media server. Might use that an HP print server. Oh you can plug in the Ethernet to the Airport and that works but with a generic printer, too.
I was successfully able to install Snow Leopard to get Unibeast and El Capitan. I made the Bootable USB and now I go into Clover and select Boot Mac OS X from USB. When I do that, the screen is black for a bit, then it is just the Apple Logo, and then it goes to the Apple Logo with the Loading Bar underneath. However, it only makes it about 2/5 of the way through the loading sequence when a screen with a ton of fine print comes up that says system uptime in nanoseconds at the bottom. Any thoughts on how to fix this?
