I have problems with my printer. Because I have used Windows, I bought me the HP LaserJet CP1217, a few years ago. But now I bought me a MacBook Pro. I have experienced just that there are no Mac drivers available for this printer. I google this problem several times, but there are no solution. Perhaps somebody in this forum can help me.


Check out the Gutenprint project.

Gutenprint provides excellent drivers for many printers that are otherwise unsupported on Mac OS X.

For the this particular HP printer, however, perhaps this article may help:
