Since Apple announced that we’d be able to print directly from our iOS devices once 4.2 arrives I was pretty excited to get my hands on the new version. Equally disappointed I was when I first saw the list of supported printers.
Today I ran across a German blogpost which describes how to get every printer working with AirPrint by running an Apple Script and re-installing the printer. You can download the script here. Follow these steps once you have downloaded Simone’s script:
- Run the script by double clicking it
- Authorize as an administrator
- Restart your Mac1
- Remove the printer you want to make available
- Re-install it and make it accessible on the network
- That’s it!
I tried it with a DELL 1320c at the office and an HP Officejet J6400 at home and it worked like a charm with both of them!
Thank you, Simone!
You don’t need to neccessarily restart your Mac. It’s ok to run
sudo killall cupsdin
