How to install the printer driver after download (Mac OS X )

To enable printing, it is necessary to copy (install) the printer driver to the hard disk of the computer.

The install screens for earlier versions Of Mac OS X will be the same but not in the same order as far as authentication, license agreement, etc.

  • When Mac OS X is shared by multiple users (accounts), first, log in as an Administrator.
  • If anti-virus software or system-resident programs have been installed in the computer, close them before installing the drivers and applications.
  • Do not remove and re-insert the USB cable during the following procedures as this may cause the Macintosh computer or the printer to operate improperly:
    • While Mac OS is launching after the printer is powered on
    • During printer driver installation
    • During printing
