I'm a new Mac user and I have the snow leopard. I have a HP Laserjet P1005 printer, which apparently isn't compatible with snow leopard but I've gotten it to work a couple of times before it stopped working. I've tried re-installing the driver a few times, but I'm not sure if it replaces the previous installation, so I want to delete the driver files myself, but I haven't been able to locate them. I've found the preinstalled drivers that came with the system, and Laserjet P1005 isn't included, so someone please help me find it?!

Here you go:

Macintosh HD/Library/Printers/hp/

and: /Volumes/MacIntosh HD/Users/your user name/Library/Printers/

Make sure you backup that entire hp folder first before deleting anything from it. Also backup the driver under your user name. Make a copy and place them on your desktop just in case!

Regards.
