You are right, it's not just OSX. It is the aftermarket. I'm just not having a good first impression with the 'Only computer that you would ever need' ....

I'll just assume these printers are not comatible with IP Printing ... I guess ...

(See, my OSX is my learning machine. I have other computers, other ways. I am just trying to figure it out, trying to learn the way of MAC, it is not life or death if it works or not, it just confuses me as to WHY)

Why does everyone think I am trying to pick a fight ??? LOL, Is it the way I type ???

Yup, Baggs, I tried the gimp-print with no luck... (Listed in post above)

Thanks again,
I'll just keep trying.
Just switched to Mac myself and I am obviously having the same problem. Mac owners are very aloof and sensitive, but very friendly if you show respect. I like a lot about the Mac but I hope to never turn into an aloof Mac owner.

Have seen several printers whose manufacturer states they are Mac friendly and do package drivers for them, but when you get into the networking documentation to set them up, the manufacturer states they will not work if the printer is networked to a windows machine. Most just flat out don't tell you this.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
