After upgrading to 10.6 my printer became unavailable to print to. It behaved as if the driver crashed (when I chose to add the printer over Bonjour) and was removed by the OS. Reinstalling the drivers from HP actually worked out pretty well, but as you can see, four sets of options are now disabled for me:
This means I cannot print in greyscale, and I cannot choose to print from manual feed or set the paper type to a label or photo-paper.
The message I get when I choose Paper is:
The bundle "Paper" couldn't be loaded because it doesn't contain a version for the current architecture.
If anyone knows a workaround for this, or spots updated drivers from HP, I'd like to know. The driver version reports itself to be 1.3.
As the printer is discontinued, and clearly the drivers are some of the few which were written by ZenoGraphics, all HP can do is make it clear via their mirthful businesslike royalty-free clip-art that they think the joke's on me:
Update: The latest drivers on 10.6.6 are versioned 126.96.36.1991 and move these features around (Duplex seems hidden, but I see greyscale under printer features and then color options. Also the paper choice is there too. So that's kind of a fix. This driver came in the Driver Update 2.4.1 on June 30 2010. That was some wait.
Update: If anyone landing on this page finds they cannot print over the network, but that they can print over USB, it's because of a change in Rendevous aka Bonjour aka Zeroconf aka mDNS. This is not my issue at all. But I have an answer to those people's problem. Update the printer to the latest firmware update from the support site (you must run the update with a Windows PC if you want a network update, other wise use the update with USB on a Mac). The Bonjour implementation on the printer was very buggy for the Mac (though not the PC, possibly endianness differences in some part of the communication?)
